There is also the demonstration material in the form of results of examinations (generalclinical, hormonal, cytological, colposcopic ones, vaginal smears, TORCH infections, ultrasound examination of pelvic organs and other systems, pictures of metrosalpingography, computer tomography, etc.), video materials prepared by teachers of the department.
