Continuous professional development is one of the factors that can be used to identify truly qualified, responsible doctors who are concerned about the health of their patients. Regular additional education is the responsibility of doctors of all specialties, the personal desire of a specialist to grow, deepen knowledge, acquire new competencies and master the latest medical technologies means much more than the obligation prescribed by legislation. Doctors who attend multidisciplinary medical events have one thing in common - they move up the career ladder quickly because they are active, motivated, and involved in the learning process. Such specialists see firsthand how participation in medical seminars, conferences and symposiums influences a doctor's qualification and, consequently, the speed of recovery of his patients. Doctors who are eager to learn new things always stand out among their colleagues and invariably achieve managing positions (head of department, deputy or chief physician of a hospital). In terms of location, medical events that cover pressing issues in modern health care are usually divided into three types: Distant (the participant has online access to a webinar room or broadcast of a major event); Face-to-face (the participant comes to the site determined by the organizers of the seminar); Hosted at a medical institution (the participant learns information virtually at his or her workplace). Each of these formats has its own advantages and disadvantages. If we talk about online conferences, the undoubted convenience lies in the home environment and the opportunity to grab a bite to eat or distract for business at any time, however, it is not always possible to ask the speaker a question and get a coherent answer while staying at the monitor screen. As to full-time participation in the seminars, the advantage of it is a variety of speakers (usually several lecturers-experts in their professional fields are gathered at full-time events). An objective minus of such seminars is the necessity to spend time on transportation, as well as to observe the timing. The most advantageous from all points of view is the format of holding educational events on the basis of a medical institution. Doctors participating in the seminar are at their workplace, in a familiar environment and do not feel uncomfortable about the remoteness of the venue of the event, which means they absorb the information better; Training takes place in an interactive format that involves all attendees; Colleagues simultaneously become acquainted with new medical technologies, so they can collectively discuss and jointly apply them in their daily practice; The educational process is guided by an experienced speaker, who combines deep medical knowledge with pedagogical experience. Such a combination allows the speaker to find an approach to each participant of the event and close all the misunderstandings that arise in the course of training; Listeners get an opportunity to personally communicate with the luminary of science and ask the speaker questions that interest them. Organization of out-of-town events is a rather labor-intensive process, not all educational institutions agree to take part in it, as they have to not only agree on cooperation with the speaker, but also provide all the necessary equipment: monitors or projector, microphones, sound equipment, etc. An example of the preparation of traveling events in the health sector can be called a modern academies of science and technology, as evidenced by their numerous letters of gratitude from representatives of medical institutions in various fields. Outreach seminars, corporate competencies in medicine, all of these focus on the ability of medical centers to meet the growing needs of patients and the importance of mutual understanding and maintaining a positive atmosphere in the team, as well as the needs of junior and mid-level employees in growth and development of personal and professional potential! These academies do not only conduct activities aimed at maintaining the moral health of professionals. They also have practical seminars, the main purpose of which is to improve the competence of employees and to give them new skills in working with professional equipment. And the main advantage of a traveling seminar is the practical training.
