The purpose of establishment of the faculty for foreign citizens is to prepare qualified specialists in the specialty "doctor-general practitioner", who speak English to continue their professional activities in foreign countries.
The main objectives of the faculty for foreign citizens are:

The educational process at the faculty for foreign citizens is organized on the basis of the use of an integrated training system developed with the help of experts from WHO (World Health Organization) and the most suitable for teaching foreign students. Modernization of the educational process and its approach to international standards according to the “Development Strategy of the I.
