Practical skills for foreign students

Practical skills for foreign students

Sixth-year students from India, Ecuador, and Nigeria, who are studying offline, have mastered the cardiology course. They have enhanced practical skills today at the Interdepartmental Training Center.

The teachers of the Department of Internal Medicine No. 1 and the Department of Propaedeutics of Internal Medicine, Radiation Diagnostics and Therapy worked with them.

According to the head of the Department of Internal Medicine No. 1, Doctor of Medical Sciences Professor Dmytro Lashkul, this is an important stage of the educational process, especially for graduate students. "We pay great attention to the mastering of practical skills, in the preparation of the future doctor, which the students have acquired during their studies in the 4th, 5th, and 6th courses, at our department, in particular, - marked the professor. -, we have studied cardiology, endocrinology, and emergency conditions with them during the sixth year. there is an opportunity to improve skills that may not have been fully understood or mastered at the training center. We have a good opportunity to meet foreign students offline: Hear their questions, and check the correctness of each manipulation. In such a way, students practice electrocardiography: they repeat the method of applying electrodes, registration, interpretation of results, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, auscultation, and percussion of the heart and lungs. They perform all these manipulations on the simulators. Each student can do every manipulation as many times as necessary to learn how to perform all manipulations clearly and correctly.

Under the supervision of Vladyslav Lysenko, assistant professor of the Department of Propaedeutics of Internal Medicine, Radiation Diagnostics and Therapy, sixth-year students have performed electrocardiographic and echocardiographic diagnostics. "I consider it very useful and expedient because the practical component is integral and important in the work of a doctor," the professor is convinced. - We worked with these students in the third year, mostly in an online format. The knowledge was refreshed during classes at Summer Schools at the simulation training centers of the university in senior years. They also practiced as part of the nursing course, in internal medicine propaedeutics classes. So, graduate students are generally ready for practical work, but in medicine repeating is never enough, to feel the result of a correctly conducted examination with your own hands."
