On December 9, 21, during practical training, 4th-year students visited the infectious diseases department of the OMOKB. During a round of patients, infectious disease doctor Satybaldyev M.M. described in detail for students patients with viral and alcoholic hepatitis. Correct interaction of the doctor with the patient is one of the most important conditions for the effectiveness of treatment and prevention. The success of the work largely depends on the doctor’s ability to competently build relationships, determine tactics, plan and implement a complex of medical and recreational activities. Teaching students the algorithm for building contact relationships with a patient increases the relevance of studying this topic. Practical classes on Infectious Diseases are held in the classrooms of the department, and in the infectious diseases department of the OMOKB. During practical exercises, students collect anamnesis, physical examination, interpret laboratory and instrumental data, treatment, and solve situational problems. During such classes, students strengthen their knowledge, remember symptoms well, treat diseases, and master the skills of propaedeutics.
