Facilities and Clinics
We invest to create the right environment for our students. That means outstanding facilities, study spaces and support which ensures the freedom to do things in a student’s own way. Simultaneously if to utilize all premises, including lecture halls, seminar rooms, teaching and research laboratories, meeting rooms, then almost 400 participants can be seated at the student’s workstations. Our state-of-the-art labs at KHIM Main Point, are brought to life by our inspired faculty members. It is important to note that all facilities are well-equipped with basic amenities, computers with good internet network.
Centrally located KHIM Main Point (Campus) is within easy walking distance of all the clinical departments provided to students at the largest city hospital – Kharkiv Regional Clinical Hospital (KhRCH). Among other health care facilities (private, public and municipal), KhRCH is the main affiliated teaching hospital, where students get trained in various disciplines, such as Internal Medicine, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Pediatrics, Surgery, Gastroenterology, Infectious Diseases, Nephrology, Oncology, Radiology, Urology etc., as well as undergo practical sessions, clinical practices and clerkships. Many students choose to spend more time in hospital gaining clinical experience which is very important in preparation for a future health profession. Clinical experiences can often be divided into shadowing/volunteering or paid positions.
The Biology Laboratory
The Biology Laboratory is established to implement, facilitate, and support the needs of teaching and research in Medical Biology; Microbiology, Virology and Immunology; Histology, Cytology and Embryology; Medical Genetics. It carries out teaching and research into the mechanisms underlying basic and applied biochemical concepts and techniques designed for all health care professionals. The laboratory is capable of performing the following experiments: polymerase chain reaction, electrophoresis (agarose and polyacrylamide), cell fractioning, ELISA tests, light microscopy, dark-field microscopy, fluorescence microscopy, phase-contrast microscopy, clinical biochemistry tests, colorimetric tests, centrifugation, chemicals and solution preparation, and experimental statistics. Labster simulations, developed for new virtual science experience are utilized in classes on the Smart Boards.
The Microbiology Laboratory
The Microbiology Laboratory is equipped for students to study the principles of microbiology, disinfection, sterilization, elementary immunology and microorganisms. We also emphasize their relationship to health and disease and provide knowledge on sanitary environments. Labster simulations developed for new virtual science experience are utilized in classes on the Smart Boards.
The Anatomy Laboratory
The Anatomy Laboratory features multiple full human skeletons, as well as disarticulated ones, and separate real human bones. It also features full-sized muscular torso models, as well as arm and leg models for studying the layering of muscles. The nervous system and special senses are represented by various models, including brain models, eye and ear models, and three-dimensional nervous system boards displaying location of major body nerves. Digital technologies in the Anatomy Lab are utilized through the use of 3D Organon software, which facilitates accelerated learning and teaching in Human Anatomy and other medical sciences on a Smart Board.
Dissection remains at the heart of the Human Anatomy course. Students study human body structures in terms of their relationship to other structures during cadaver dissection in the morgue of the KhRCH, which is also affiliated to KHIM.
The Physiology Laboratory
The Physiology Laboratory is designed for teaching, supporting and also assessing medical students. The laboratory provides students with opportunities to practice common methods in clinics such as: Electrocardiography (ECG), Electroencephalography (EEG), phonocardiography, galvanized skin response and also procedural skills on respiratory and hearing tests, reflexes and heart sounds associated with the core course.
Smart Boards are utilized for enhancing the educational experience of our students. In addition, we use interactive teaching simulation software – Physioex 9.0 and Biopac student lab v.9. to carry out the experiments.
The Physics Laboratory
Our Physics Laboratory experience is designed to guide student’s learning of fundamental concepts of experimentation and data collection, delivered through the medium of hands-on experiments on why and how objects with mass move and interact with other objects. While working at Physics Laboratory, students should expect to advance several learning goals, such as:
In our laboratory we use ramps and spheres to determine the effects of friction, the results of inelastic collisions, and projectile motion. Van De Graaf Generator is used to make experiments such as demonstration of charge nature and lines of electric force. Physics comes alive when we see interference of light and calculate the wavelengths of visible light. Physical Constants are discovered using pendulums to calculate the gravitational acceleration and LEDs to calculate Planck’s constant. Using Lenz’s Law Demonstrator and Magnetic induction-line Demonstrator, we analyze the induction of a magnetic field.
The Chemistry Laboratory
The Chemistry Laboratory is where theory meets practice by the hands-on implementation of what is learned in Medical and Bioorganic Chemistry. Our Laboratory has modern-day instruments for physical chemical analysis including titrations, potentiometric studies, thermochemistry as well as absorption spectroscopy. The laboratory is equipped for research with automated GC/MS instruments and IR spectrometer and prepares students for further medical studies. Ladderane Web-based platform helps to create customizable chemistry experiments on Smart Boards.
Center for Simulation Training and Assessment (CSTA)
Advancing interdisciplinary and cooperative skills, the CSTA prepares our students to meet the challenges of the contemporary health care environment. In two settings, students practice procedures ranging from inserting catheters and delivering babies to resuscitating injured patients.
The center offers more than 50 simulation scenarios in which students address cases including traumatic injury, pediatric septic shock, kidney disease and teen pregnancy. After each scenario, students review video of their performance with faculty and staff to discuss what went well and areas for improvement. The CSTA is aimed to train students from the full range of health disciplines together.
Courses conducted at CSTA:
• Basics of physical examination and medical history collection;
• In-depth course of physical examination and medical history collection;
• Clinical Practice Course;
• Clinical Procedures;
• Practical exercises in the block of “Organs and systems”;
• Programs in the course of clinical rotation of senior students;
• Basic Life Support Protocol (BLS);
• Advanced Life Support Protocol (ACLS); and
• Pediatric Life Support Protocols (PALS) and others.
The carefully designed lecture halls feature comfortable, active and participatory learning. Close location to Affiliated Teaching Hospital allows better communication with the patients and integration to the healthcare community. All of the lecture halls are equipped with the newest multimedia and audio-visual technologies and are with good sound insulation. Three medium-size lecture halls are available at KHIM Main Point. One on the 1st floor, second on the 2nd floor and third in KHIM Urban Space. Large lecture halls are available on the premises of Affiliated Teaching Hospitals where mandatory lectures are also given. They are also utilized for academic meetings and various ceremonies.
The students have the chance to use the breakout and self-directed learning facilities on campus. These facilities are available on the 2nd floor of KHIM Main Point at the Reading Lounge and on the 4th floor of the KhRCH. Students are also welcome to use regular classrooms for self-study purposes, if the rooms are not booked for teaching.
KHIM Urban Space for Sports and Well-Being
KHIM strives to maintain a safe and secure environment. In the backyard of the main campus we have KHIM Urban Space, which is an active and recreational (Sport) zone located at downtown of Kharkiv with easy reach from most of the options of public transport. Students and educators use it for taking a break, informal working and socializing. Additionally, we propose various entertainment activities such as BBQ parties, cinema-nights and national cultural events. These activities allow students and community members to come together and familiarize themselves with the cultures of the world. Intercultural Center hosts a variety of fun events and activities designed to help students meet other people and connect with the university community.
Institute’s sports and physical activity continues to develop and is seen as an important part of the student experience. Whether our student is an occasional gym-goer or an elite athlete, the Institute offers some of the finest sports facilities and support services.
In our KHIM Urban Space and nearby sport clubs there are facilities for a full range of traditional sports such as football, basketball, netball, badminton, cricket, table tennis and darts.
