Department of Dermatology and Venereology with the course of Cosmetology

Students’ Scientific Club

The Student Scientific Club of the Department of Dermatology and Venereology with a course of Cosmetology has been in existence for more than a decade and every year gives students the opportunity to become more familiar with skin diseases. Almost all the employees of the department started their professional formation in the student scientific club: Stepanenko V.I, Fedorenko A.E, Shupenko M.M, Kolyadenko K.V, Chernyshov PV, Tkachyshyna K.S


The meetings of the club are held at the Kyiv City Oleksandrivska Clinical Hospital once a week, which gives students the opportunity to learn about various dermatovenerological diseases, the latest methods of diagnostics and treatment. The work of the club is headed by an associate professor of the department, Ph.D. Kateryna Kolyadenko, who helps students to choose most exclusive topics of scientific work in the field of dermatovenereology.


Each meeting must start with a visit to the patient with different clinical cases. Students have the opportunity to collect anamnesis, carry out diagnostic procedures and learn the treatment regimens that have been offered by leading Ukrainian dermatovenereologists. The meetings also discuss in detail the scientific report prepared by the students, which gives the opportunity not only to learn a lot of new, interesting and up-to-date information, but also to try young specialists themselves in scientific activity.


In addition to covering topics of dermatovenerological diseases, masterclasses of Punch biopsy, dermatoscopy, cosmetics prepapation, etc. are held at the Club meetings. The club has fruitful cooperation with the clubs of the Department of Bioorganic and Biological Chemistry, the Department of Surgery No. 4, the Department of Urology and the Department of Otolaryngology. Joint meetings are a chance to look at the disease in an interdisciplinary manner. An average of 10-20 students attend the Club. Everyone has the opportunity to be co-authors of scientific articles in professional journals alongside the staff of the department. Many visiting students have reports at international student conferences, All-Ukrainian scientific competitions and Olympiads.


It should also be noted that the Student Scientific Club of the Department of Dermatology and Venereology with a course of Cosmetology has repeatedly participated in the popular scientific festival “Scientific picnics”.
