Studying medicine is certainly an honorable calling and a special walk of life that one chooses once and for all. It requires a particular type of character, high level of commitment, and most importantly, an ability for self-directed learning. Apart from the doctor's scientific specialty and professional excellence, efficient communication may be the most important skill for a doctor. The need to develop a great sense of empathy, deliver clear explanations and deal with ethical issues is a crucial part of a successful practice. If you are really determined to pursue a medical career – this program is a good start.
The first semester is fully focused on Russian language training, building reading, writing, speaking and oral comprehension skills necessary for both academic understanding and everyday communication. As a key outcome, the students achieve the language level required to go on with specialty courses.
In the second semester, they go on mastering their language proficiency through the course of Russian for University Studies, and also develop advanced learning competences, including presentation and seminar participation strategies, time and materials management, meeting deadlines and responding feedback. Specialized courses within the curriculum, including Chemistry, Mathematics, and Physics focus on developing key competencies necessary for healthcare specialists and provide solid theoretical foundation one day to be used in regulated practice. Meanwhile, they learn the unique structure, style, process, and documentation required for Scientific Russian, in order to cope with medical documentation in the future.
One of the main objectives of medical education is to help students become effective learners, prepared to keep up with the dynamic content of the healthcare environment constantly facing new challenges. This program helps students to develop a range of transferable skills like observation, logical reasoning, networking and taking initiative. These are essential when working as a doctor, but are just as useful in jobs outside medicine. As a result, our graduates have expanded career options. After completing the program successfully, students become fully prepared to enter relevant Bachelor, Master or PhD programs at Russian universities.
