On the basis of the Republican Children’s Clinical Hospital in Simferopol, the departments of pediatrics and pediatric surgery of the Medical Academy of the Crimean Federal University were opened.
The advantage of our cooperation is that students have the opportunity of real practice right during their studies. Here they see the whole treatment process, learn to work in contact with patients, try themselves in operating rooms, examination rooms, dressing rooms , — the press service of the university quotes the director of the Medical Academy of KFU Evgeny Krutikov.
The university also implements the Doctor’s Assistant program. It involves conducting practical classes for students right in the hospital — future doctors are «attached» to specific doctors and learn from the experience of professionals: they help measure blood pressure, perform an operation, make a dressing.
The most important thing is that the learning process combines theory and practice. While students are practicing their professional skills on mannequins, real operations are taking place behind the doors of the auditoriums, there is a struggle for life. This is an important, even invaluable, experience, and it will become decisive in shaping them as doctors , — notes Vladimir Konstantinov, Chairman of the State Council of the Republic of Crimea.
On the basis of the hospital, students of the second and older courses of the specialties «Pediatrics», «Pediatric Surgery» and «General Medicine» are already studying and practicing.
