Professor Vasili Roudenok made a presentation at the round table

In September this year, Belarusian State Medical University and Volgograd State Medical University signed an Agreement on academic and scientific cooperation. And already in October Belarusian State Medical University received an invitation to take part in the round table “Internationalization of Education – 2030”.

This event, organized by Volgograd State Medical University, was held online on October 29. Belarusian State Medical University was presented by Vice-Rector for International Relations, Doctor of Medical Sciences, Professor Vasili Roudenok, who told his colleagues about the experience of implementing experimental projects for teaching international students on the example of the Belarusian-Israeli project.

Professor Roudenok in his report emphasized that among the most promising areas of cooperation between Belarusian State Medical University and the State of Israel is the training of Israeli specialists for practical health care in this country. In this regard, since 2018, training programs in the specialty “General Medicine” have been implemented for Israeli citizens in English according to the USMLE (United States Medical Licensing Examination) system within the framework of 6-year and 4-year training programs.

As Vasili Roudenok noted, an experimental 4-year Belarusian-Israeli project, developed through the educational program of I stage of higher education in the specialty 1-79 01 01 'General Medicine', which provides an integrated approach and consistent practical training of specialists, is a promising one in terms of export. Within the framework of the educational program, Israeli citizens with higher education in related medical specialties can continue their studies starting from 3rd course. The goal of the project is to test a model of practical training of foreign students based on the competencies formed within the framework of the educational program in “General Medicine” specialty.

In addition, cooperation between Holon Technological Institute and Belarusian State Medical University is promising. Among its main directions, joint training of specialists is planned: obtaining a bachelor's degree in digital medical technologies at Holon Institute of Technology, and further training in the framework of a 4-year educational program in “General medicine” specialty in English.

Within the framework of the round table, the main issues of the internationalization of higher education, academic and student mobility, student education in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and others were also discussed.

In addition to the organizers, the event was attended by representatives of a number of Russian universities - Peoples' Friendship University of Russia, Novosibirsk State University, Ural Federal University, Samara National Research University named after academician S.P. Korolev, and also Tashkent State Medical Academy (Uzbekistan), the University of Technology Mara (Malaysia), the University of Magna Graechia di Catanzano (Italy).

The roundtable participants were also able to exchange views on topical problems of medical science, discussed strategies to counter the new global health challenges of medical education associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Belarusian State Medical University expresses its gratitude to Volgograd State Medical University for the event.
