COVID-19 infection has become a global challenge, which means it requires cooperative efforts in finding solutions.

Despite the difficult and unpredictable quarantine conditions of today, the staff of the Department of Surgery and Vascular Surgery of the Shupyk National Medical Academy of Postgraduate Education continues to work hard and actively, fulfilling all the tasks set before the staff of the department.

In our opinion sharing modern scientific information and providing training courses are extremely important nowadays during the quarantine due to COVID-19 pandemics because this infection is very dangerous for both patients and doctors.

On the Department of Oncology 03/31/2020 completed a two-week cycle of thematic improvement "Modern possibilities of diagnostics, complex treatment of malignant diseases of abdominal organs and retroperitoneal space" by Professor Prokop Gordiychuk.   

Nowadays during the COVID-19 pandemic the Department of Anesthesiology and Intensive Care of Shupyk NMAPE provides a distance education for residents and doctors studying on thematic improvement courses.

Moreover, the main task of the Department is to perform the continuing studying with the help of open and free access to educational resources including Internet.
