Practical classes at health care facilities are conducted in study rooms, near the patient’s bed, in treatment rooms, in different laboratories, etc. Teachers create optimal conditions for students, which are as close as possible to the conditions of future professional activity. According to the subject of the practical training, students are engaged in a certain medical-preventive institution, where, in addition to in-depth study of the material, they provide strong assistance to medical staff and care for the sick. In the course of industrial and undergraduate practical work students fully master all the features of the future profession, consistently, step by step, independently perform medical manipulations, laboratory researches, etc., guided by the standards of practical training of specialists. Using a strong clinical base for hands-on learning, students have the great opportunity to study the disciplines of the cycle of vocational and practical training directly at the patient's bed, to get acquainted with new diagnostic technologies and modern methods of treatment of patients. This gives the opportunity to bring the educational process as close as possible to the conditions in which graduates will have to work after completing their studies. All practical classes at health care facilities are conducted according to:
