Program Description

Medical cybernetics is one of the youngest specialties of higher medical education. It is the science of control in complex dynamic medical systems. Currently, medical cybernetics is inextricably linked with medical informatics - the science of obtaining, processing and transmitting medical information through the use of information and communication technologies.

Students study medical disciplines, as well as the theoretical foundations of cybernetics, physiological and clinical cybernetics, system analysis and the basics of designing medical information systems.
Mastering the specialty "Medical Cybernetics" opens up to the specialist the richest prospects for creative activity. However, choosing this profession, the applicant must assess their capabilities. The study of mathematical and other exact disciplines at a deep level presents great difficulties for those who focus exclusively on medicine with a natural and humanitarian focus.

Junior students (1-3) are in-depth training in the following areas:

  • humanitarian, social and economic sciences: philosophy, history of medicine, foreign, Latin and the basics of medical and pharmaceutical terminology, medical law, etc .;
  • mathematical, natural sciences: higher mathematics, computer science, physics, chemistry, biology with ecology;
  • biomedical sciences: genetics, anatomy, histology, cytology, physiology, microbiology and virology, molecular pharmacology, general pathology, immunology, biochemistry, general biophysics.

In senior courses (4-6), students master vocational courses:

  • medical and preventive: hygiene with the basics of human ecology, military hygiene, epidemiology;
  • clinical: internal diseases, clinical and experimental surgery, radiation diagnosis and therapy, clinical cybernetics, clinical laboratory diagnostics, neurology and psychiatry, pediatrics. functional diagnostics;
  • by specialty: physiological cybernetics, medical biophysics, general and medical radiobiology, medical electronics, theoretical foundations of cybernetics, system analysis and organization of health care, medical information systems.

The study of clinical courses focuses on the mechanisms of disease development, experimental modeling of pathological processes, instrumental diagnostics, the use of computer monitoring and other information technologies.

Ends training in the implementation and protection of the thesis.

The cybernetic doctor is in demand in medical and research medical and biomedical institutes as a specialist for the development and implementation of medical information technologies, the use of systems analysis and mathematical statistics in clinical research organizations.

The main activities of the specialist:

  • Analysis, creation, implementation and operation of medical information systems and information technologies in medicine and health care.
  •  Statistical analysis of clinical, experimental and medical-demographic data.
  • Processing medical signals and images.
  • Scientific research in the field of fundamental biomedical disciplines based on mathematical methods and computational tools.
  • Planning of clinical research, implementation of results into practice using the methods of mathematical statistics and evidence-based medicine.
  • Modeling medical and biological systems. Development and implementation of new models and methods in clinical practice and health management.
  • Development of support systems for making medical decisions, including using artificial intelligence.
  • Development of models and standards of information interaction in health care.
  • Medical activities: doctor-statistician, after residency — a functional diagnostics doctor, a specialist in radiation methods of research.

Career Prospects

Medical cybernetics is an interdisciplinary science. Cybernetics doctors work in close cooperation with clinicians (therapists, surgeons, resuscitators, neurologists, rehabilitologists, etc.), physiologists, biochemists, mathematicians, engineers and other specialists. They are actively recruited by leading Russian and international companies involved in the development and development of medical information systems and technologies, as well as national medical research centers, academic universities and research institutes.

Graduates can continue education in graduate school in the areas of fundamental medicine, biological sciences or in residency in the field of functional diagnostics, radiology, radiology, ultrasound diagnostics, clinical laboratory diagnostics.

Until now, the cybernetic doctor is an elite education. Much attention is paid to each student, early determination with the direction of future activities is welcomed and supported. At the same time, the need for graduates in the future will only increase.
