Boris Rubashkin was born and educated in St. Petersburg, Russia. He graduated medical school in 1969 and took his psychiatric residency in 1973. He immigrated to the United States of America in 1974 and spent five years learning English and working in a mental health field in Minnesota.
With his desire to escape from the cold weather, he moved to a warmer climate of Houston, Texas. From 1979 – 1983, he worked at University of Texas Health Science Psychiatric Residency. In 1983, he went into private practice specializing in adult psychiatry. In 1997, he also became a consulting psychiatrist to Long Term Care Facilities in Houston and its surrounding areas.
