To improve the quality of teaching educative-industrial pharmacy, dental clinic, and control-analytic laboratory were created where students are able to put the accepted knowledge into practice.

Clinical bases of the University are the majority of city clinics containing necessary modern medical-diagnostic equipment. Total bed fund of clinical departments is 4 200 beds. The main clinical bases of the university are Regional Clinical Hospital, Regional Oncological Heath Centre, Hospital of Emergency Medical Help, Regional Children Clinical Hospital, VSMU Clinic and others.

 Scientific research

There are 14 scientific-pedagogical schools in medical-biological, clinical, pharmaceutical disciplines at VSMU which make a valuable contribution into contemporary medical and pharmaceutical science and practice development in the Republic of Belarus and CIS countries. Students scientific society has rich traditions and wide experience in the field of young scientists preparation. The scientific activity of VSMU is carried out in the following perspective scientific directions: field and extremal medicine, surgical diseases, medical aids, infection, prophylaxis and treatment of heart-vascular system, traumas, oncology, healthy mother – healthy child, prophylaxis of alcoholism, drug addiction and psychosomatic diseases, internal diseases; organization, management and economy of health care system.
