The Dean of the School of Medicine told lawmakers that their primary mission is to train highly qualified health care professionals according to international standards.
"The School and its faculty carry out an important mission to foster cooperation in the dissemination of innovative teaching practices to enhance the competitiveness of domestic health care. This, in turn, makes it possible to consistently improve the system of training doctors, nurses and other health professionals," said Senator Nariman Turegaliev.
Also during the meeting the deputies were told about the transformation of the University into an academic medical center, which today has taken its first steps by creating clinical academic departments, combining inpatient and outpatient care departments according to the profile of medical services. This will allow the implementation of both innovative clinical tasks, educational programs, and scientific research.
