Abstract

Annotation. Today, the shortage of health workers is noted not only in Ukraine but also in European countries. Hospitals need highly skilled and competent staff who are quick to navigate the clinical situation, prescribe an adequate amount of additional methods of examination and effective treatment, starting from the outpatient stage. Therefore, there is a need for qualitative and thorough knowledge that future health professionals will receive during their professional training, from the first courses of medical schools. The research has a theoretical character, presented in the methods of analysis, comparison, systematization of the obtained data. In July 2019, medical school students passed the International Medical Examinations (IFOM) exam, which was part of the Unified State Qualification Exam. The questions from the course "Microbiology, Virology and Immunology" in many cases concerned pathogens that cause natural-focal disease that are not peculiar to our country, on the other hand, the argumentation of the correct answers was insufficient. In the 2019 IFOM Tests, there was a wealth of clinical data that played a decisive role in choosing the right answer for third-year medical school students who did not have sufficient clinical practice due to the specificities of the subject's curriculum to interpreting the condition of the problem, combining theoretical and clinical features is sometimes impossible or difficult. Therefore, the analysis of the test assignments presented during the IFOM exam revealed not only defects in their formulation, but also prompted the faculty, as well as our department, to improve and supplement the information provided to students to prepare for practical lessons the in MOODL and further provide an opportunity for students to more thoroughly prepare for the test exam.
