KAN Development (Kyiv), which develops the Academy of Modern Education A+ network, is considering the possibility of implementing a project for a higher educational institution with a medical direction, founder and head of the educational network Ivanna Nikonova has said.
“We have already begun to think about higher education. Because, in my opinion, Ukraine has a good secondary education, but there is simply no high-quality higher education. On the one hand, schools graduate fairly well-trained students, and there is nowhere to go. A good university is practice from the first year. We really understand that our higher education is losing, especially now against the background of quarantine,” Nikonova told Interfax-Ukraine.
She believes that the medical direction of higher education in Ukraine is promising and relevant.
“We are considering a higher educational institution related to medicine. The country needs doctors now, and we need to invest money in them … We even have a Doctor+ program in kindergartens. From an early age, children study science within the framework of the Think Room. It includes medicine. Now it is very important,” the expert said.
