The NATURAL SCIENCES DEPARTMENT was reorganized on the basis of the Scientific Disciplines and Public Health Department in 2009. The teaching activities include clinical and theory classes on the following disciplines: General Biology with basics of Ecology, General Chemistry, a course on higher Mathematics and Biophysics, Computer Science for the 1st year students, as well as Molecular Biology as an elective course for  the 5th year students.

Since the vast majority of disciplines are taught in the 1st year, the tasks of the department along with presenting the knowledge are: training students to analyze and organize information, formation of the correct approach to study, teaching  the discipline institution of higher education, preparing  to acquire specialized knowledge and skills which eventually should ensure the harmonious development of progressive and successful development of necessary materials.
