The Georgian Medical Postgraduate Foundation was started in the 1990s for training young physicians to pass at the US Medical Licensing Examination. The first batch of students also successfully passed the medical residency programs in the US.
Members of the foundation were provided with all necessary aids, textbooks and the like, but proper training became the call of the day. There was a need for a institute of higher medical education and this is when academicians David Tvildiani and Dr. Dimitri Tvildiani came together to bring to life the AIETI Medical School.
It was renamed as the David Tvildiani University in 2011. It happened to be one of the country’s first non-governmental medical universities.
