figure1: The system of medical education in Ukraine.

Mentions: At present, education is provided by 19 state medical universities and three postgraduate medical academies. The universities are funded by the Ministry of Health and are supervised by both the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Education & Science. In addition, there are three medical institutes within multi-speciality universities supervised and funded by the Ministry of Education & Science. Figure 1 presents the general principles of medical education as a whole and education on speciality oncology as well. All of them are financed from the state budget, but they also have their own finances due to the education of 40%–50% students being on a so-called contract basis (they have to pay for their education themselves). These students are citizens of Ukraine as well as other countries. Each of these 22 medical universities or institutes has a Department of Oncology.
