On May 2, 1932, in order to prepare reserves for the Armed Forces, the Department of Military Sanitary Disciplines was established by the order of the Chief of Staff of the Ukrainian Military District and the People's Commissar for Education, later renamed to the Department of Military Sanitary Training. On September 1941, as part of the institute, it was evacuated to Chkalov (now Orenburg).

Since 1946 the Department has been fully staffed with qualified teachers who had many years of experience in teaching and medical support of hostilities during the Second World War. Since 1948 the Department has been called the Department of Special Training, since 1954 it has been renamed the Military Department, since 1996 - the Department of Extreme and Military Medicine, and since 2003 - the Department of Disaster Medicine and Military Medicine.

Thus, the development of the Department can be divided into three periods.

The first period covers 9 years, from its inception in 1932 until the beginning of World War II in 1941.

The second period lasted for 4 years, coinciding with World War II.

The third period – postwar – from 1945 to the present.
