Medicine faculty isof the same age as the twentieth century: on September 1, 1900 in Odessa, the inauguration of the medicine faculty of NovorossiyskUniversity was held. In 1920 it was reorganized into the medical academy, and in 1922 – intothe medical institute. In 1932 the medicine faculty of Odessa medical institute was divided into medicine and pediatric faculties. In 1994, when the institution received university status,from these faculties there were established two medicine faculties with specialties of “General Medicine” and “Pediatrics”. In 2011, in connection with the resumption of students’ education at the university withspecialty in”Medical and Preventive Care ” (sanitary and hygienic medicine), the increasing number of students and the change of the university’s status from state into national one, medicine faculties were divided into four ones. Now specialists are trained in “Medicine” with the specialty in “General Medicine” at the medicine faculties № 1 and № 2,”Pediatrics” -at the medicine faculty № 3,”Medical and Preventive Care” – at the medicine faculty № 4. Since 2012, at the medicine faculty № 4 there is also training of bachelors in “Social and Political Sciences” (specialty – “Practical psychology (by types)”) and “Social Services” (specialty – “Social assistance”).

Over the years of the university’s existence well-known scientific and pedagogical schools have been formed andthey continueto operate successfully and brought worldwide fame and now the leading scientists of our university are their successors:
Training at medicine faculties of “Medicine” in “General Medicine”specialty is fulfilled through the educational and qualification level 7.12010001 – specialist and 8.12010001 – master degree; “Pediatrics”specialty is fulfilled through the educational and qualification level 7.12010002 – specialist and 8.12010002 master degree; “Medical and Preventive Care “is fulfilled through the educational and qualification level 7.12010003 – specialist and 8.12010003 – master degree.
After learningof the educational and professional program (EPP) for general medical training,doctor qualificationis conferred to the specialistand he is determined to be able to perform professional work of the interneedoctor and trainee doctor. Training of medical personnel due to EPP of medical direction is performed according to the following educational and qualification level: specialist (complete higher medical education) –the training is performed onbasis of general secondary education or basic secondary medical education.
Since 2004, at higher educational institutions of III-IV accreditation level of Ukraine training of specialists iscarried out by means of credit-modular system of the educational process organisation.
Credit-modular system of the educational process organization (CMSEPO) is a model of the educational process, which is based on combination of modular technologies of education and credit educational units (credits of ECTS).
ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) is European system of interacceptance of credits as a measuring unit of the working intensity of student’s workload. It is based on the ground of the extent of the educational work that is fulfilled by students (in terms of credits) in order to accumulate credits and have a possibility of interacceptance in other higher education institutions within the single European educational scope.
ECTS credits is a unit of measuring of the work amount that a student has to fulfill while learning educational discipline (discipline module). One ECTS credit makes up 30 classroom hours and contains all types of educational work of the student – in-class learning (lectures, practical training, seminars) and independent work of students (IWS is the preparation for the practical training, writing reports, etc.). For the studying of the particular discipline (module) the student is given a certain number of credits that are counted only in case of successful acquisition of knowledge and practical skills provided by the working program of the discipline.
Module is a recorded, complete and logically combined part of the educational discipline, which is implemented through appropriate forms of educational process (in-classlearning and IWS) and ends with the final checking. The module consists of notional modules.
Notional module is a system for learning elements which is combined on the ground of compliance with certain learning object.

Licensed integrated test exam “Krok 2. General medical training”is the component part of state certification of graduates of higher medical educational institutions and measures the performance quality of professional components of complete higher medical education after finishing of the 6th course.
