STUDENTS ARE OVERSATISFIED WITH THE ACADEMIC PRACTICE AT ACIBADEM SISTINA HOSPITAL – THE PROJECT CONTINUES NEXT YEAR
The first group of students in the Faculty of Medical Sciences at “Goce Delchev” University (UGD) of Shtip successfully completed their internship at Acibadem Sistina Hospital. In the past two months, 42 students were given the opportunity for practical classes at the most modern private hospital in the region with the most sophisticated medical equipment and they were educated by leading doctors having many years of experience behind them.
The practical classes of the students, divided into groups, took place at the Departments of Internal Medicine, Surgery, Pediatrics and Gynecology and Obstetrics; however, the students had the opportunity to gain experience in some of the elective courses they study, i.e. Dermatovenereology, Oncology, Radiology, Otorhinolaryngology, Diagnostic and Interventional Radiotherapy. As for the students, the acquired knowledge and experience is of exceptional importance for their further professional engagement and it has great significance especially in time when due to the Covid-19 pressure the public healthcare cannot provide the necessary internship for medical students in the final years.
“Acibadem Sistina Academic Practice” is a pioneering project that started on November 9 this year. The Hospital is the only one in the region that provides education, research and clinical practice at the same time. The project that is going to include about 100 students, continues next year. In February Acibadem Sistina Hospital will open its doors for the second group of students in the 6th year at the Faculty of Medical Sciences at UGD of Shtip.
“As a clinical hospital we know the importance of well-trained and professional medical staff and to that end we are fully prepared to invest in young, promising students. Our goal in these challenging conditions, during a serious healthcare crisis, is to provide education for future doctors that will direct and turn them into professional medical staff. It is crucial for building a stable healthcare system in the country”.
