Zaporizhzhya State Medical University has long been working closely with its Turkish partner Ondokuz Mais University (OMU). It is not the first time that the staff of ZSMU visit in the framework of Erasmus + their Turkish colleagues, but for the first time it was as a lecturer that participated in the project « KA1. Academic mobility» of Erasmus+ program professor of faculty surgery department Klimenko Andrey Vladimirovich.
The topic of the course was the surgical treatment of obesity, thoracic-laparoscopic esophagealectomy in the treatment of patients with esophageal cancer, as well as surgical treatment of chronic pancreatitis. It was undoubtedly a completely new experience to hold lectures for foreigners within the walls of their alma mater.
Also of interest was the sightseeing tour by the departments of Ondokuz Mais University Hospital. And communication with colleagues-surgeons at the international arena is not only an exchange of experience on new methods and principles of treatment, but also an opportunity to establish partnerships for further scientific cooperation.
We would like to express our gratitude to the International Department of the OMU for the organization of the exchange program and warm welcome of our employee.
