The head of the department of residence, Ph.D. Rahim Aliyev spoke on the first question and said that for today doctors from 31 specialties of all 40 specializations of the residence of the Republic are being trained in our institute. Of these, 98 residents study at the Faculty of Surgery, 70 - therapeutics, 16 in the preventive treatment department, and so on. There are 24 departments for the preparation of residents. The main ways to improve the activities of the residency are the renewal of programs, the attraction of residents to academic activities, the use of an electronic library and the possibilities of simulation education, a selection of questions for a single resident exam, attendance and control of residents. The programs of the departments for general surgery, pediatric surgery, obstetrics-gynecology, anesthesiology-resuscitation, therapy, pediatrics, cardiology, psychiatry, physiotherapy, social hygiene, etc. have been updated. Attraction to academic activity consists of writing original articles and reviews on relevant literature, discussing clinical cases and participating in scientific conferences. For this, an electronic library is used. The using of available simulators in the institute increases the quality of teaching.
The rector of the Institute, Professor N.A. Gasimov, noted that the improvement of the quality of education in the residency is connected with the attendance of residents, besides the improving of conditions for the development of these skills is very important to regularly check their knowledge.
