Practical lesson in parasitology
The involvement of experienced teachers in the educational process is one of the factors for increasing the level of knowledge of students and their preparation as highly qualified specialists. In order to bring theory closer to practice and to familiarize students with the activities of the industry under study, on behalf of the university administration, mutual agreements were concluded with the Food Security Committee under the Government of the Republic of Tajikistan on the creation of branches of the department (training classes) at their subordinate organizations. Theoretical classes at the department are conducted by an interactive method using information technology. Laboratory and practical classes are held in equipped classrooms using canned parasites, medicines, teaching aids, textbooks, handouts, etc. Clinical training practices are carried out in the production lines of pharmaceutical companies, diagnostic centers and training farms "Gissar" and "Yavan".
