World Health Organization, Geneva (Switzerland).
In recent years it has become apparent that the system of continuing medical education developed in the USSR has reached a high level of achievement. At the invitation of the Ministry of Health of the USSR, an international study tour was organized by the World Health Organization to study the Soviet system. This report presents the findings of that tour group. The first section deals with the administration and staffing of health services in the USSR, including the organization of the public health services. The second section addresses itself to medical education, including undergraduate education, specialist postgraduate education and advanced postgraduate education. Section 3 describes the 2 institutes for advanced medical studies in the USSR, and the fourth section explores the various types of course offerings within the institutions. The fifth and final section is involved with the advanced training of special groups, such as medical teaching staff, public health administrators and paramedical personnel. (HS)
