    Ukrainian doctors will undergo a course on aeromedical evacuation and medical assistance to the military and civilians with severe thermal injuries in Poland. Such training is the next stage in strengthening the professional knowledge of specialists in countering the challenges of a full-scale war in Ukraine. 

    In general, doctors from the Ukrainian Scientific and Practical Center of Emergency Medicine and Disaster Medicine of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine, Odesa, Cherkasy, Lviv, Kyiv and Ivano-Frankivsk regions will take part in the training.

    It should be noted that such a bilateral exchange of experience between Ukrainian and Polish doctors was launched thanks to the initiative and agreements of the First Ladies of Ukraine and Poland - Olena Zelenska and Agata Kornhauser-Duda. 

    Representatives of the National Security Bureau of Poland, representatives of the Medical Air Service Center, representatives of the Ministry of Health of Poland and the Ministry of Health of Ukraine also took an active part in the preparation of the project. 

    Previously, another group of specialists studied at the air rescue base in Warsaw, where Ukrainian medical personnel improved their skills in evacuating the wounded by air. The theoretical and practical parts of the training were conducted by medical instructors and flight instructors, who daily train the personnel of the Medical Air Service of Poland.
