The program of the UK-Russia Young Medics Conference was approved by the UK partners

On March 1-2, 2019, the first UK-Russia Young Medics Conference will be held at Sechenov University. The conference program will include panel discussions, oral and poster sessions of young scientists and students from both countries. It will provide a unique opportunity for communication and intercultural exchange of the UK and Russian young medics.


The conference is held within the framework of the UK-Russia Young Medics Association, the joint project of Sechenov University and the British Embassy in Russia.
The students and academic staff of the top-5 medical UK schools (University of Cambridge, Oxford University, Newcastle University, Royal and Imperial Colleges of London will take part in the Conference.
The establishment of the Association was firstly initiated by Prof. Petr V. Glybochko, the Sechenov University’s rector, at the UK-Russia Forum "Health and Life Sciences" that was hosted by Sechenov University in December, 2017. 


"We [medical schools of Russia and the UK] should develop within a united educational space, which will facilitate young professionals to share experiences and find common ground,"- noted Prof. Glybochko. 


It is important to note that the main goal of the Conference is to demonstrate great opportunities for cooperation between research teams, students and young scientists of the UK and Russia. 
The program of the UK-Russia Young Medics Conference was approved by the UK participants during a recent working visit to the UK by Dr. Denis Butnaru, Director of the Biomedical Science & Technology Park, and Mr. Nikita Sushentsev, Coordinator of the UK-Russia Young Medics Association.
Prof. Steve Jones, Head of The School of Medical Education, Newcastle University
Professor of Medical Education Leadership, the Conference President from the British side, together with Dr Simon Hughes, Consultant Clinical Oncologist, Guy's & St. Thomas NHS Foundation Trust Associate Clinical Dean, will moderate the first panel discussion of the Conference. The discussion will be devoted to the problems of postgraduate education in Russia and the UK. It is known that the system of training interns and residents depends on the challenges of the health system of a particular country. Thus, lack of general practitioners (GP) is a common problem for both countries, but it is obvious that the solution approaches are quite different. This problem has been given the highest priority; therefore the Conference will be a unique platform for experience exchange to improve training standards for medical doctors.
