Doctors at the Clinical Hospital named after S.I. Spasokukotsky have conducted more than 20 broadcasts from the red zone for medical students

March 1

A new format of education for students of medical universities has appeared at the City Clinical Hospital named after S.I.  Spasokukotsky at the Department of Internal Medicine of Moscow State University of Medicine  and Dentistry. Over 20 broadcasts from the red zone have already been watched by 460 students.

“In late January, our hospital resumed management of planned and emergency patients without infectious diseases. In January 2021, while treating coronavirus patients, our doctors managed to conduct 23 broadcasts and perform online examinations of about 100 patients in the red zone,” said Aleksey Pogonin, Head Doctor of the City Clinical Hospital named after S.I. Spasokukotsky.

For classes, the doctors use the Remote Assistance service that works using an interactive platform and latest generation augmented reality glasses with a camera and microphone. Students, using a remote connection in the lecture hall, can see and hear everything that the expert does during an examination. Thus, future doctors have an opportunity to learn how to provide medical assistance to COVID-19 patients.

“When we faced COVID-19, our students switched to remote learning, many clinical hospitals were redesigned to treat the coronavirus. We got an opportunity to provide our students with comprehensive education. If lectures can be watched online, why can’t we perform online examinations? In the red zone, the doctors of the City Clinical Hospital named after S.I. Spasokukotsky wear virtual reality glasses, and a professor in the lecture hall uses remote connection to demonstrate examinations to students. Despite the difficult times, our department has managed to ensure a full-fledged educational process,” said Arkady Vertkin, Director of the Therapeutic Clinic and Head of the Department of Internal Medicine, Clinical Pharmacology and Emergency Medical Care at A. I.  Yevdokimov Moscow State University of Medicine and Dentistry.

City students and residents have been working in the health care facilities of Moscow since the spring. Before their employment, they underwent additional COVID-19 training.

Medical residents and graduate students have become district general practitioners and perform their duties alongside their senior colleagues, including as part of in-home teams. Senior students work or do practical training at polyclinics as nurses or administrators, as well as at outpatient CT imaging centers.

A second large group of students and medical residents works right in the red zones of coronavirus inpatient departments as nurses and paramedical personnel.
