In their professional activities, except their high spiritual vocation of humanity and need to meaningful pass descendants on their knowledge, teacher of the highest medical school at the present stage of development of society is obliged to meet the high rank of the teacher in a pristine sense of this word (from the latin «magister» – mentor, teacher).
As at all times, now is not enough to just be himself a highly qualified specialist in the field of medical science at the highest theoretical and practical level.
Modern teacher must be thoroughly familiar with the basic principles of pedagogical skills, which include fundamental knowledge, skills and abilities to form a clear, logical, sequential, successive, well-reasoned, evidence-based, transparent, credible, motivated, authoritative, and ideally even charismatic author’s teaching methods craft of healing. That’s why at the present stage of practical implementation of the theory of clinical training and medical education have already overdue objective need for each teacher not only higher medical, but also higher pedagogical education.
The basic laws of the receive, learning and knowledge transfer (interactive and distance learning methods, didactical Socrates heuristic, «brainstorm») a modern teacher knowing and applying in their professional activities every day and must constantly and creatively respond to the classic pedagogical questions of didactic (al-Gk. διδακτικός – edifying) – «What to teach?» and «How to teach»?
And for higher medical education characterized gradual integration of the «individual didactics» (teaching methods separate academic disciplines – anatomy, physiology, biochemistry etc.) for the formation of each student-future doctor the skills from the teacher or self-finding for analysation, synthesation, systematization and presentation of their knowledge and practical skills.
This encourages the student’s creative and their own clinical judgment for the subsequent implementation of the professional medical practice (surgery, therapy etc.).
The subject of modern didactic is the interaction of the teacher’s learning process and the student’s process of conscious cognitive activity for the mutual constructive resolution of the problems: «Who, When, Where and Why to teach»?, because the doctoring it is a gift of God.
