The staff of Zaporizhzhia State Medical University reports with deep sadness that at the age of 75 the heart of Ivan Shtanko, Candidate of Medical Sciences, Associate Professor of the Department of Human Anatomy, Operative Surgery and Topographic Anatomy, stopped beating.
Ivan Shtanko devoted almost half a century to the training of medical professionals, coming to the Department of Anatomy after graduating from the Semipalatinsk Medical Institute (current Semey State Medical University) and service in the armed forces. In our university he was formed as a lecturer and scientist.
Reading lectures, conducting practical classes, scientific researches, making teaching aids, writing articles, educational and methodical materials, manuals, preparing tests — the range of tasks that Ivan Shtanko faithfully performed is inexhaustible.
More than one generation of University graduates remember Ivan Shtanko with gratitude, especially his sever, yet fair attitude.
The staff of Zaporizhzhia State Medical University shares the pain of the heavy loss and expresses its sincere condolences to the family, friends and acquaintances of Ivan Shtanko.
