Graduation of the first Ecuadorian students
This year, students from 42 countries of the world graduated from Zaporozhye State Medical University. Among them there were four citizens of the Republic of Ecuador, who were first among their relatives to come to our University. And one of them even decided to continue deepening his knowledge in Oncology at ZSMU.
According to the Dean of the International Faculty № 2, Associate Professor Ivan Melnyk, the first applicants from Latin America to study at ZSMU arrived 7 years ago, and began their way from the pre-university studies at the International Faculty № 1, where they studied the local language and other disciplines that would help them to live in Ukraine and study at ZSMU without any difficulties. Currently, in total there are 64 students from the Republic of Ecuador studying in ZSMU, among them 56 in General Medicine, three in Dentistry, four in Pediatrics and one in Pharmacy.
Nowadays a lot of young people from Latin America willing to become doctors know about our university. And there will be even more of the when the first graduates demonstrate at home their knowledge and skills acquired in Zaporozhye.
"I advise all my compatriots, who are currently studying, to strive and fight for their dreams, to reach your goals and, even if there are problems and difficulties, to do everything possible achieving them. In the end you will always get the reward" Gabriel Ortega, an Ecuadorian graduate.
