Postgraduate education or postgraduate primary specialization is an integral part of higher medical education. The requirements of higher medical education establish that a graduate of a higher medical school can provide qualified and specialized medical care only after a sufficiently longtime targeted training. Medical postgraduate education involves professional training of a specialist in the amount corresponding to the qualification characteristics of the doctor of the chosen specialty. Besides professional skills the perception and realization of medical ethics; another important component of the profession - communication with patients is carried out.

In the Kyrgyz Republic, the main type of postgraduate education is the training of clinical medicine specialists, particularly clinical residency with a three-year study period.

The International School of Medicine provides training for foreign students, mainly from India and Pakistan. As in the countries of the British Commonwealth, in these countries, the duration of postgraduate education for residency is 3 years. The International School of Medicine has developed an educational program of postgraduate education, designed to train foreign citizens for a period of 3 years. This educational program is adapted to the training programs (syllabuses) in the master's program in India and at the same time includes the requirements stipulated for this type of training in our country.

Upon completion of the residency program and successfully passing the state final certification, graduates receive a certificate and, after passing the certification exam, a specialist certificate, thus, admittance to independent medical practice is confirmed.

The main areas of training in clinical internship:

  1. Obstetrics and gynecology
  2. Pediatrics
  3. Therapy
  4. Traumatology - orthopedics
  5. Surgery
  6. Family medicine

In any educational residency program, great attention is paid to the acquisition of practical skills. This is achieved, in particular, by the inclusion of a simulation course in training. In our school, a simulation course takes place at the «VEDANTA» Medical Center, where residents can master the practical skills necessary in further activities.
