Improvement cycles are conducted for doctors of therapeutic specialties and specialists of non-therapeutic profile engaged in the treatment of elderly and senile people. In total, 56 doctors underwent professional retraining in the specialty “geriatrics” at the department. Over 120 people have completed general and thematic improvement courses in gerontology and geriatrics.

The specialty program has included the study of gerontology and geriatrics in the sixth year of the Faculty of Medicine since September 2016. The total capacity of the cycle is 72hours. During the training, students receive the necessary theoretical knowledge in general and fundamental gerontology, skills and competencies in the field of various sections of geriatrics and related disciplines.

The theoretical part of the training in the form of lectures and practical classes provides for multidisciplinarity as the leading concept of geriatrics. The program includes issues of fundamental gerontology, medical and social aspects of providing assistance to older people.

The issues of prevention of premature aging, development of senile asthenia syndrome, improvement of quality of life, features of drug therapy of the elderly are studied. The department strives to introduce modern forms of education and methods of assessing the knowledge of students and doctors. The content and topics of lectures are constantly updated in accordance with the current results of scientific research and current problems of gerontology and geriatrics.

Lectures are delivered using multimedia technology. Modern informational films, webinars, etc. are widely used the possibilities of professional information resources. One of the forms of self-study is participation in online video conferences on the most relevant geriatric aspects of internal medicine. A very important point in the training is the discussion of clinical recommendations on major socially significant diseases, in the light of the characteristics of the elderly.

The geriatrics teaching program is carried out within the framework of integration with such clinical disciplines as neurology, psychiatry, urology, endocrinology, etc. An important place in the training of a geriatrician is given to ethical aspects, issues of deontology, systematic work of a doctor on himself, the ability to find contact and find the key to the heart of every elderly patient. This undoubtedly has a positive effect on the results of treatment. The attention of cadets and students is drawn to the role of the family, the preservation of social ties in maintaining active longevity and preventing dementia.

There is a student scientific circle. Students and cadets are involved in scientific research conducted at the department under the guidance of teachers. The range of issues discussed at the meetings is very wide. Among the topics discussed are issues of theoretical and clinical gerontology, age-associated pathology. Every year our students participate in conferences of young scientists, undergraduates and postgraduates with scientific publications and presentations.
