Head of the Department: Doctor of Medical Sciences, Professor BERMET MERLISOVNA KHUDAIBERGENOVA
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 in the following disciplines: General Biology with basics of Ecology, General Chemistry, a course in 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 apart from presenting the knowledge are to: train students to analyze and organize information, form the correct approach to studies, teach them right attitude to the required rules and routines as accepted at higher education institutions, get them prepared to acquire special knowledge and skills, which eventually should ensure the harmonious and sustainable development and successful learning of essential materials.
