Practical acquaintance with the city on the Neva - St. Petersburg!

Practical acquaintance with the city on the Neva

International student exchange is becoming a good tradition. Partners from the Russian Federation traditionally occupy a special place and one of the crucial BSMU partners in the sphere of student mobility programs is North-Western State Medical University named after I.I.Mechnikov (St. Petersburg).

On July 6-21, 2019 five 6th-year students of the Faculty of Preventive Medicine underwent practical training on hygiene and epidemiology at the North-Western State Medical University named after I.I.Mechnikov. The group of students was selected on the grounds of high academic performance and active participation in the social and scientific life of the university.

Victoria Zankevich, a student of the Faculty of Preventive Medicine, shares her impressions of her practical training and stay in St. Petersburg:

“When you study at a prestigious medical university, you understand that you have the opportunity to learn and see a lot. Being students of the Faculty of Preventive Medicine of the Belarusian State Medical University we were lucky enough to undergo practical training at the North-Western State Medical University named after I.I.Mechnikov (St. Petersburg). It was a great opportunity to exchange experience, master new practical skills, listen to the advice and recommendations of specialists.

From the very beginning of our practice stay in St. Petersburg we felt comfortable thanks to the coordinated work of the international departments of the two countries and the BSMU dean of the Faculty of Preventive Medicine.

The program was designed in such a way that we not only had practical sessions, but also got acquainted with the city on the Neva - St. Petersburg. We also visited the Museum of the History of the North-Western State Medical University named after I.I.Mechnikov and the Museum of Forensic Medicine of the North-Western State Medical University named after I.I.Mechnikov.

Together with the staff of the international department of the North-Western State Medical University named after I.I.Mechnikov we had the opportunity to get acquainted with the historical center of St. Petersburg, see the most famous squares and unique architectural ensembles and monuments.

The St. Petersburg Museum of Hygiene of “City Center for Medical Prevention” deserves special attention: we managed to see the expositions and halls of the museum the structure and become aware of the key directions of the center's work.

On behalf of our group I would like to express our sincere gratitude to the rector of university, dean of the Faculty of Preventive Medicine and the staff of the BSMU international department for the opportunity to undergo practical training at the North-Western State Medical University named after I.I.Mechnikov and thus expand the our horizons in the field of preventive care.

The time spent in St. Petersburg is an invaluable experience for us: in addition to all the abovementioned, we should note that the practice in St. Petersburg allowed us to evaluate our own level of knowledge and take a fresh look at things around, gave a powerful incentive to achieve our goals and just brought a huge amount of positive emotions.”

The leadership of the Belarusian State Medical University expresses gratitude to the rector of the North-Western Medical University named after I.I. Mechnikov prof. S.A.Saiganov, the staff of the Department of international relations as well as the faculty of the North-Western State Medical University named after I.I.Mechnikov for the perfect organization of practical training for BSMU students!
