The course of lectures was attended by a group of students, who are fluent in English, as well as invited PhD students and teachers of the department. The curator of this group was a Professor of the department – Oleksandra Berhilevych. In the classroom, students received a lot of new information on the biological characteristics of pathogens, pathogenesis of infectious diseases, modern methods of laboratory diagnostics. To ensure the quality of training, the American professor conducted skype-dialog, during which students could freely communicate with him and asked questions. Students were attending these lessons and demonstrated their interest and activeness.
