According to the press service of the Ministry of Health, before this prestigious event, representatives of our country held their first meeting with the Vice-Governor of St. Petersburg Oleg Ergashev.
During the conversation, A. Inoyatov stressed that cooperation in the field of healthcare has been steadily developing in recent years, and the leaders of the two countries have made a worthy contribution to this.
In particular, the agreements reached during the visit of the Governor of St. Petersburg A. Beglov to Uzbekistan on November 6-9 last year, today give positive results.
For example, now in our country medical personnel are trained in cooperation with 22 foreign universities, and St. Petersburg State Pediatric Medical University is one of them.
In particular, in accordance with the agreement reached between this university and the Medical Institute of Karakalpakstan, a clinical residency was established on the basis of an international joint educational program. In the future, it is planned to open a joint clinic of two higher educational institutions in the Aral Sea region.
In addition, cooperation on training and advanced training of personnel between the St. Petersburg State Pediatric Medical University and the Republican Specialized Scientific and Practical Medical Center of Pediatrics of Uzbekistan is expanding.
Also, a positive result is the training of students from 2018 on a joint educational program, initiated on the basis of an agreement between the Tashkent Pediatric Medical Institute and St. Petersburg State Pediatric Medical University. Currently, about 300 Uzbek students study at this prestigious university of St. Petersburg alone.
Also during the dialogue, the issue of implementing a joint clinical residency training program between the Republican Specialized Scientific and Practical Medical Center of Oncology and Radiology of Uzbekistan and the Federal State Budgetary Institution "N. Petrov National Medical Research Center of Oncology" of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation in St. Petersburg was considered.
