Facilities and Clinics

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.  It is important to note that all facilities are well-equipped with basic amenities, computers with good internet network.

DIMH Main Point (Campus)

Our beautiful DIMH Main Point (Campus) located in historic city center, on the bank of Dniper river with a beautiful promenade, a short walk away from the Dnipro’s city main areas of interest, including libraries, museums, parks, shopping malls etc.  Dnipro is business center and economic-developing city which is the 4th largest city of Ukraine. Dnipro is the city of young politics, architects and health care workers. DIMH students are studying in a unique academic environment with lots of educational establishments located around, allowing students to not only to be enriched with the scientific environment but also have multiple possibilities for well-being. 

Lecture Halls

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 DIMH Main Point.  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. 

Self-Study Rooms 

The students have the chance to use the breakout and self-directed learning facilities on campus. These facilities are available on the Main Point at the Reading Lounge which is located on the 2nd floor of the DIMH. Students are also welcome to use regular classrooms for self-study purposes, if the rooms are not booked for teaching.

Associated Clinics

Alongside traditional lectures and case-based learning, teaching is focused on practical training such as bedside teaching, clerkships, clinical practice, and research work.  Bedside training is conducted in the wards of associated clinics.  Such training is conducted in compliance with professional ethical standards under the guidance of an experienced physician who is a tenured faculty of DIMH.  

Prof. Rudniev Municipal Institution “Specialized Dnipropetrovsk Maternal Center in Dnipropetrovsk” and “MedinUa” Clinic&Lab are located right in the city center.  Associated clinics include a neonatal hospital and surgical center for 300 patients. Also, associated clinics have outpatient departments for adults. Students can participate in the examination with a therapist, gynecologist, cardiologist, neurologist, urologist, ophthalmologist, dermatologist, gastroenterologist, ENT specialist, endocrinologist etc.

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.

Laboratories

Our state-of-the-art labs at DIMH Main Point, are brought to life by our inspired faculty members.

The Histological Research Laboratory 

The Histological Research 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 Tactical Medicine Laboratory

Training in tactical medicine is organized in order to educate students, train and prepare them to operate within a tactical law enforcement environment. The main task of the laboratory is to teach students to perform tactical medical duties effectively, competently, and as safely as practical, while helping those in need, and at the end of the mission, return home to loved ones. Some of the scenarios which are implemented in the laboratory: 

– Provide emergency medical care, up close, ideally within 30 seconds.
– Provide consultation and preventive medical advice with team leaders.
– Organize and render immediate medical care, extraction, evacuation, and transportation of injured or ill officers or others at the scene who are in need of medical care.
– Designate a TMP to accompany any ill or injured officers to the hospital, and remain a liaison with local EMS system personnel and leaders, local hospital staff, and involved prehospital agencies.
– Enhance communications and optimize medical care.

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 Prof. Rudniev Municipal Institution “Specialized Dnipropetrovsk Maternal Center in Dnipropetrovsk”, which is also affiliated to DIMH.  

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:

– Develop experimental and analytical skills for both theoretical problems and data;
– Appreciate the “Art of Experimentation” and what is involved in designing and analyzing a data-driven investigation, including inductive and deductive reasoning and others.

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.

Sport Facilities

DIMH sports and physical activity continues to develop and is seen as an important part of the student experience.  The sports area which includes 1 gymnasium, a gym room and a fitness room is at the students’ disposal. The training facility and infrastructure completely correspond to requirements established by the Ministry of Education and Science. We provide and subsidize facilities, fund professional staff to provide physical activity programs and support student sport clubs in a range of ways: fitness, basketball, ping-pong, badminton, power lifting and bodybuilding sports clubs.
