On April 19, 2019, Open Day was held at Astana Medical University. This year, 147 schoolchildren from the cities of Nur-Sultan, Kostanay, Karaganda, Zhezkazgan and Pavlodar visited the University.
Open Day is one of the most important events at AMU, which enables high school students to get the most complete information about the University, the rules of admission and the conditions of education, the practice of students and employment prospects after graduation.
At the event, the representatives of the University Admission Committee – the head and the chief specialist of the Department of students’ orientation and monitoring the quality of students’ knowledge Altynbaeva G.K. and Mamadraimova G.Zh. made welcoming words and told about the news in admission rules.
“This year, medical applicants for the first time will take a special exam in the form of psychometric testing in five areas: ethics, empathy, stress resistance, communication skills, vocational guidance. This testing allows us to determine the psychometric status of applicants and their compliance with the chosen specialty”, - noted Altynbayeva G.K.
An exhibition was organized for the guests of the event in the university hall, where employees told students about the educational processes, introduced them to phantoms and models, organ models, human anatomical model, library funds, radiobiological measuring devices, and also distributed booklets with information about educational programs and presented information about the summer surgical school, where participants will be able to acquire practical skills.
In addition, during the event, schoolchildren were shown a bright flash mob, and they also organized an excursion to the University Museum and a concert program.
Visitors to the Open Day were able to get not only information about the AMU, but also a huge store of impressions in general about the university.
