To create an effective system of training the following key activities were accepted and are implemented at the institute now:

1) compliance of basic training of students to the principles of university education;

2) maximum orientation to demand of the region in personnel;

3) a wide application of information technologies;

4) formation of the system of vocational guidance for prospective students (university complexes and districts);

5) active involvement of students in research work;

6) creation of schools of scientific apprenticeship and investigation of human health problems and environment.

The integration of secondary, vocational secondary and higher education gained development at the Institute of Medicine, Ecology and Physical Culture. The institute has been fruitfully working for a long time with profession-oriented classes in medical and biological sciences. Such form of interaction with district educational institutions and municipalities of the region promotes close, fruitful work with prospective students, helps to recruit a student. Affiliation of the medical college to USU turned out to be especially effective that allowed it to improve a high-quality vocational guidance. The unique feature of the Institute incorporating a medical college expands possibilities of the subsequent training of college students not only at the Faculty of Medicine, but also at the Faculty of Physical Culture and Rehabilitation. Such combination of education considerably increases quality of specialists in adaptive physical culture and reduces terms to gain higher education. The uniform educational and methodical commission of the Institute gives every possibility to increase quality, to unify and structure programs of study, to write educational, methodical textbooks and manuals according to the general ideology of the Institute, in particular, through regional standards and elective courses.
