Studying medicine is certainly an honorable calling and a special walk of life that one chooses once and for all. It requires a particular mold of character, the highest level of commitment, and most importantly, the ability for self-directed learning. And 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 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 the medical career – this program is a good start.

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.
