Training of medical specialists in Ukraine under modern conditions requires integration into the European educational process that involves the use of new techniques, interactive methods to improve motivation and develop the ability to think scientifically. It will allow us to realize the goal of high school, namely training of highly qualified doctors ready to deal effectively with the specialty at the international level. The method of cooperative learning groups allows us to engage more students, develop their interpersonal communication, and enhance control of individual and group accountability. Each student has the opportunity to develop skills to perceive visual and verbal information professionally, comprehend and make decisions independently, improve their organizational and communication skills.
