Mr.Nikita Suschentsev, coordinator of the Center for Research Career & student of the International School “Medicine of the Future” (Sechenov University) began a special training course at the University of Cambridge (UK) on 24 April, 2017.
It became possible under the framework of the bilateral cooperation agreement, which was signed during the visit of the the delegationof Cambridge Medical Society to Sechenov University in February, 2017. The training course was devoted to the study of a supervision system that has been a part of the medical education in Cambridge since 1540.
The supervision system represents a personal approach to medical education that is most appreciated at the University of Cambridge. Every week the medical students not only attend lectures and seminars,but also meet with their supervisors for a more careful additional study of the subject. The students analyze written essays, make short reports on modern achievements in the field of study or review what they’ve already learned. Moreover, they can ask any questions that cause difficulties during the study, or to ask for an advice on how to start a deeper research of the medical issues.
Mr. Sushentsev attended lectures on Human Reproduction, Mechanisms of Drug Action, Molecules in Medical Science. It’s necessary to mention that an important part of each lecture is a retrospective analysis of scientific views. The students are given a description of the key experiments that became a foundation for modern understanding of the problem.. Each lecture ends with the announcement of the most progressive research areas to motivate students to start a research.
For example, Mr. Suschentsev had a chance to attend lesson on anatomy presented by  Professor David Riches, Director of Studies in Medicine and Fellow of Gonville & Caius College. Professor Riches and the students expressed interest in further cooperation with Sechenov University in edication and science, which would be beneficial to the faculty and students of both universities.
