Practical Training

    Currently one of the most important challenges facing medical education institutions and health care authorities is the development of quality practical training programs for medical students. Practical training is an integral part of the medical education process. 
    In practical training students learn to apply  the knowledge received at the university to treatment of actual patients, improve their diagnostic skills, get exposed to real-life health care policies and procedures at medical offices and emergency rooms. Students who have completed a course of practical training are able to:
- examine patients
- identify necessary diagnostic tests and develop treatment plans
- develop effective rehabilitation programs for patients
- lead nurses and medical assistants, pharmacists
- set up medical care facilities (hospitals, clinics, urgent care facilities, dental offices)
- diagnose common diseases (including emergency diagnosis required urgent hospitalization).

Practical training provides students with practical knowledge of:
- the details of recent organizational changes in medical care institutions
- medical and financial reporting requirements
- challenges nurses, medical assistants, practitioners and pharmacists face at hospitals, clinics, emergency rooms and dental offices
- management of health care organizations and facilities
- legal and regulatory requirements for medical practices
- latest achievements in health care science and technology
- medical research techniques.

    Practical training programs are available to NSMU students at numerous hospitals and health centers in Novosibirsk and Novosibirsk region as well as in other cities of the Russian Federation and abroad. All medical institutions that provide practical training facilities to NSMU students have modern equipment and highly qualified personnel.
