Improvement of teaching methods, search for new forms of active cognitive practice education for internship-doctors are important tasks of improving the quality of specialists training in the system of post-graduate education.

Since 1991, internship-doctors specializing in "Therapeutic dentistry", "Dentistry of childhood", "Orthopedic stomatology", "Orthodontics" and "Surgical dentistry" study at the Department of Postgraduate Education of Doctors-Dentists of the Ukrainian Medical Stomatological Academy. The period of study on the full-time basis of the discipline "Surgical Dentistry" is 1 month.

During seminars, practical classes, and lecture courses, internship-doctors study the basic issues of surgical stomatology: emergency care, anesthetics of the tissues of the maxillofacial area, typical and atypical teeth removal, inflammatory diseases, traumatic lesions of soft tissues and bones of the face, neoplasms of the maxillofacial area and more. Moreover, much attention is paid to differential diagnosis and modern methods of treatment.

Undoubtedly, the basic and necessary form of training is lectures. In our opinion, the main methods that increase the effectiveness of lectures are discussions, the usage of interactive learning tools and, at the same time, the ability of the lecturer to get in contact with the audience easily paying no regard to the level of their training, who is a professional able to utilize high multimedia technologies along with pedagogical techniques and foreign languages.

In addition, internship-doctors are present at the advisory activities of the professors and associate professors of the department, are involved in clinical treatments of not ordinary patients, have an independent appointment.

The teachers of the department carry out individual work with each doctor, especially those who wish to link their future medical activities with surgical dentistry, and it is aimed at professional training of a future specialist. The success of the professional work of the dental surgeons depends, first of all, on their experience and knowledge of theirs specialty, the grounds of modern medical science in general, but their innate characteristics, features of character, correspondence to medical activity are not of less importance.

For preparation to practical and seminar classes at the department are used self-developed study guides, monographs on surgical dentistry. It contains not only relevant educational material, but also models of test control, situational tasks, the solution of which helps in mastering the topic and indicates the ways of the practical application of the acquired knowledge. Interns receive computer-controlled training twice a month, and also use thematic programs that provide the possibility to study any sections of the course in surgical dentistry.

The organization of research work of interns at the Department of Postgraduate Education in dentistry is carried out in three stages of different directions.

Modern society considers a specialist not only as a person who possesses knowledge and skills in the professional field, but also as a person who is able to act effectively in complicated, non-standard situations, to make decisions independently, to self-develop and to perfect themselves, to be able to communicate people, and for this purpose All conditions are present at the department. These and others professionally important properties and personal qualities determine the professional competence of a specialist, especially a dental surgeon.
