TASS: Medical students from Penza will practice in Lebanon since 2019
Penza State University plans to send medical students to internships in Lebanon since 2019. Sergey Vasin, the Vice Rector for International Affairs of PSU reported this news to the Information Agency TASS.
“We plan to send our medical students to practice in Lebanon as part of the contracts that were concluded (between PSU and Arab universities in Beirut in February 2018) in the summer of 2019. Now Russian students have the opportunity to do an internship in Germany, in the city of Flensburg. However, medical practice causes some difficulties because students are required to master the German language. In Lebanon, it will be to some extent easier, because there is enough English, and besides, there are Russian-speaking doctors who can help our students,” - said Sergey Vasin.
The decision was made after visiting Lebanon by the Director of the Medical Institute of the PSU Alexander Mitroshin. “He got acquainted with medical equipment, which is represented in clinics, and, in his opinion, it would be useful for our students to study the organization of medical care in Lebanon,” - the vice-rector noted.
He clarified that we are talking about internships for Russian-speaking students. “We already have a practice when, for example, Indian students go to India to practice. As for Lebanon, we are now talking about Russian-speaking students, although Lebanese also have the opportunity to do internship at home,” - the vice-rector added.
