I have been studying at this university for 4 years on the speciality “Pharmacy”. Here I like the way teachers teach, they can choose a special approach to each student. For several years of training, they have already become native to me.
I had good moments and bad at the university. Here I found my true friends, my love. I remember that at the university the trade union committee organizes holidays, because they brighten up our student life, help us to get distracted by everything. This is a sea of positive emotions and such deep emotions.
I learned a lot of useful things for myself, the university gave me the necessary knowledge base for robots in the pharmacy. I advise you to go to LNMU.
I can not say that the university provides a good education, practical classes for students and interns are ill-considered and often non-informative. In addition, the evaluation here is not always an indicator, because some of the Professors deliberately increased or underestimated, depending on personal “motives”. But the worst here is postgraduate education.
The University, which is called the most corrupt medical university in the country. This is not always true. If you want to study, you have the strength and desire to master the dream profession of a doctor, then you will achieve the goals. Of course, there are many details that can be combined with the expression ;human factor;, but it is present everywhere. Therefore, you do not need to think stereotyped. They open to the knocker.
If be really honest our medical university has many different problems. But I want to start from pluses: first – if you want to study- you may do it, second – most of the teachers are really good, third – there are just two pluses:)))
Minuses- 1) the greatest problem is that you haven’t any practice (except some rare cases). 2) low level of English 3) you have no chance to choose what you prefer to study 4) corruption (sometimes your ratings do not depend on you)
My university has its own positive and negative sides. Pros: an interesting presentation of material in practical classes, fairness and objectivity of teachers, the opportunity to study for free.
Cons: the inappropriateness of certain subjects in the curriculum, the discrepancy of the prestige of the university with its real possibilities.
In general, I recommend my university to future generations.
LNMU is one of the most popular medical universities of Ukraine. Now I’m a student of 6’th years and that’s why I can distinguish the most important positive and negative sides. Primary pluses are the opening of the modern simulated center, where the student can hone their skills. Although in LNMU are a lot of professionals, who can and like to teach the students.
But unfortunately, there are a lot of problems. For example corruption, old books, the absence of practice and conservation of people, which manage this university.
Firstly, I think that LNMU has a low-level practical training of students, secondly, teaching methods and theoretical provision of the university don’t correspond to the European level.But there are many professors and doctors in the university who work best to teach students, this is a big plus.
This university gives you an opportunity to be a part of the oldest medical school in Ukraine. Like others young university, it`s not perfect (books that aren`t always up-to-date, deficiency of clinical experience and evidence-based medicine). But, I hope that the road of success is behind. Work hard and you`ll achieve your own goals and expectations. Go ahead, and don`t tell me that it`s too difficult to change the system.
Be prepared to play, not always to win. Defeated but not broken and ready to never give up.
It’s not the best University. However it has a positive side. First of all, it’s an amazing historical building in which we acquire the basic knowledge, interesting and professional teachers (but very few), and priceless life experience. And of course that unforgettable period of your life. But the outdated educational system leaves bad memories. This is the place where everything is decided by family and social connections, and of course money. Most teachers are far from professionals, and as practitioners mostly learn how not to do something and what doctors we shouldn’t be. The University gives a lot of unnecessary information and not enough knowledge, which later will be useful to you in practice.
