Learning of Microbiology, Virology and Immunology play an important role in the system of biomedical knowledge. It provides the fundamental theoretical knowledge that serves as the basis for all subsequent training of future doctors. Teaching courses are conducted in three languages: Ukrainian, Russian and English.
The main task of the department is to ensure optimal conditions for students master the theoretical foundations of the subject, microbiological and serological methods of laboratory diagnosis of infectious diseases and specific prevention of infections. Teachers of the department provide practically oriented learning and mastering practical skills. This systematic approach will allow future specialist thoroughly master the subject and learn to apply this knowledge in their future practice.
The practical training for students carry out Professor Sergei Iv. Klymnyuk , Associate professors Mykhaylo S. Tvorko

The practical training for students carry out Associate professors Olena V. Pokryshko (2015)
The practical training for students carry out assistant Iryna M.Halabitska (2018)
Particular attention is paid to the work of the students’ team, which has been actively working at the Department of Microbiology, Virology and Immunology for long time. Annual students’ scientific conferences have been organised. Students of different faculties and courses take part in them with reports and best students get award from teachers' committee
Educational materials (2016-2017)
At the department during practical classes students draw up protocols about their results of practical work and write their own findings in special albums. These albums are designed and prepared by the lecturer for students of all faculties in Ukrainian and English. They significantly help in students' practical work. Experience shows that there are certain characteristics of teaching theoretical subjects in modern conditions, which are caused by the growth of information load per student and need a relatively short time to learn a large educational material. In this regard, there is a need to use different modern technologies of teaching and conducting control of knowledge. Not just pictures and smears are used but also videos which were created by employees of the department.
