History of the Faculty

Faculty of Pediatrics Vinnitsa Medical Institute. E. Pirogov was opened in 1961. It consists of 16 departments, three of which are specialized (Department of Pediatrics, as a separate department of the faculty, established in 1964; Department of Pediatric Surgery – formed in 1960; Department of Pediatric Infectious Diseases – organized in 1965 (before that infectious diseases for children studied at the Department of Pediatrics)). The main clinical bases were the newly built regional children’s hospital, the regional clinical hospital. MI Pirogov, central district hospital, maternity hospital No. 2 and children’s infectious hospital.

Former deans made significant contributions to the creation and development of the Pediatric Faculty. The first dean of the faculty was Professor Stolarchuk Alexander (from 1963 to 1972), Professor Gomenyuk Ivan Prokopovich (from 1972 to 1984), Professor Moroz Vasily Maksimovich (from 1984 to 1986), Associate Professor Psiuk Stepan Kindratovich (from 1986 to 1997).

In 1994, due to significant changes in the organization of higher medical education and practical health care, the Pediatric and Medical Faculties were reorganized into a single “Faculty of Medicine” with the training of doctors in the specialty: “Medical” and “Pediatrics”. .

From 1967 to 1997, 31 issues were completed and more than 4,300 pediatricians were trained.

In 1996, the recruitment of a specialty in pediatrics was restored. Due to the increase in the volume of training of pediatric students in 2001, there was a need for the formation of the “Faculty of Medicine №2”. In addition to specialized departments (Department of Pediatric Diseases and Care for Sick Children, Department of Pediatrics # 1, Department of Pediatrics # 2, Department of Pediatric Infectious Diseases and Department of Pediatric Surgery), Departments of Internal Medicine of the Faculty of Medicine # 2 and Surgery of the Faculty of Medicine, Department 2 training of pediatricians. Associate Professor Oleg Vladenko Vlasenko was appointed dean of the Medical Faculty # 2, and Vladimir Semenovich Shkolnikov Assistant Dean. In 2003, in connection with the beginning of training in the specialty “medical psychology”, the Assistant Professor was appointed Assistant Professor Serebrennikov Oksana Anatolievna. In the same year, another specialized department was formed – the Department of Medical Psychology and Psychiatry.

In 2005, due to the temporary suspension of recruitment in the specialties of “pediatrics” and “medical psychology”, our faculty accepted a part of medical students. Since 2006 the recruitment in the specialties “pediatrics” and “medical psychology” has been restored.

Since 2016 Professor Vladimir Shkolnikov has been selected as the Dean of the Faculty of Medicine # 2,
