Research activity

  • Residents and faculty meet two times a month to review the latest clinical and basic science research articles, gain insight into ongoing research activities within the Department, and look for answers to clinical questions.
  • Each resident has a theme for their clinical research work and reports their results four times a year. Several times a year, residents review interesting cases from their consultation services to their peers. Complex medical cases are presented with a pathology review.

Training base

Clinical practice takes place at the multidisciplinary City Clinical Hospital No. 25 and other multidisciplinary medical institutions. Residents work in intensive care units and surgical operating rooms with various profiles where they master manipulations on modern high-tech equipment. Residents learn practical skills including catheterization of the central vein from various approaches with ultrasound navigation, mastering modern methods of anesthesia and their combinations, ensuring airway patency, working with ventilators from different manufacturers, performing renal replacement therapy, intensive care, intensive care measures in critical conditions, etc.
The final result of mastering theory and practice is conducting clinical research where the resident analyzes their clinical experience.
