FOREIGN STUDENTS PARTICIPATE IN THE LESSON-CONFERENCE "FAMOUS DOCTORS OF ANCIENT AND MODERN TIMES"
Foreign students of the 2nd and 3rd courses of the Faculties of Medicine and Dentistry became participants of the cultural and educational event - the lesson–conference "Famous doctors of anticient and modern times", which was held by teachers of the Russian Language Department of TSMU (responsible - Associate professor E.D. Aksenova and assistant E.Y. Borodina). Thirteen reports, accompanied by a multimedia presentation, were devoted to the life and work of famous Russian and foreign doctors. The students prepared reports not only about doctors who have received recognition all over the world – Abu Ali ibn Sina (Avicenna), R. Koch, N.I. Pirogov, A.I. Evdokimov, but also about doctors whose names are widely known in the native countries of students – H.H. Mansurov (Tajikistan), M.A.O. Topchibashev (Azerbaijan), Sahile Najar (Syria), N. Tachmuradov, G. Berdimuhammedov, M. Garyev (Turkmenistan). The active interest of the participants of the lesson-conference was aroused by reports on the scientific and practical activities of doctors-scientists of our university – R.I. Gavrilova and B.N. Davydov. At the end of the event, the speakers answered questions. Then all participants completed lexical and grammatical tests and assignments within topic of the lesson-conference.
The event was a powerful incentive for foreign students to further study the life and professional activities of famous doctors, to reveal the creative potential and personal realization of future doctors. Immersion of foreign students in the language environment, of course, contributed to their social and cultural adaptation and overcoming language difficulties in communication.
