In 1960 the course of medical preparation and citizen’s protection was founded under Samarkand State University. Toshmetov Alikhan Toshmetovich, a colonel in the reservation, was selected as a leader of this course. In 1961, the course was widened and a teacher and doctor Rashidov Masejon Hamidovich was employed for teaching the basements of medical education. After a year, he was promoted and as a consequence, he became the head of the chair. In 1964, further doctor – teacher Wiseberg Nonna Ivanovna began working in the chair.
In the chair, the subject of citizen’s protection was taught by Klipenko Philipp Pavlovich and Manin Grigori Grigorievich , lieutenant colonels in reservation. During the next few years this subject was taught by lieutenant colonels Prokopenko Evgeni Ivanovich and Zaycev A. P.
It is deservable to highlight that Rashidov M. H. had a great role in organizing the chair and arranging educational activities. He was a head of the chair from 1960 to 1990.
