YEREVAN. – The fact that a conference on military medical service is being held today already bespeaks many things, Yerevan State Medical University Rector Derenik Dumanyan on Saturday noted during the aforesaid conference, which is devoted to the 20th anniversary of Armenia’s Armed Forces.    

The Rector also recalled that the Armenian military medical service had commenced during the years of the Karabakh War, and the service developed in parallel with the army.
