The Medical University of Pleven was the first to offer an English language medical program in Bulgaria and continues to be a pioneer with the adoption of Lecturio’s digital learning science-based education platform. Already an attractive destination for international and domestic medical students alike, the Medical University of Pleven now joins over 100 other medical schools around the world in their offering of world-leading digital medical education.
With Lecturio, the Medical University of Pleven will offer students an enhanced fully digital medical curriculum with a library of more than 400 interactive 3D anatomy models, 6,500 video lectures, 20,000 recall questions and 4,000 clinical case questions all built with award-winning professors from schools such as Harvard, Yale, Johns Hopkins, and others. Jochen Tanner from Lecturio says: “University faculty will also be able to digitize their existing curriculum to offer a truly modern learning experience which leverages the latest advances in learning science such as blended learning, flipped classrooms and spaced repetition.”
Assoc. prof. Dobromir Dimitrov MD, PhD from the Medical University of Pleven add: “The digital offering could not come at a better time, as we will not only be able to offer international and domestic medical students a more flexible digital learning experience, but we will be better positioned to adapt to the challenges posed by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, too.” Delivering a full medical curriculum online will allow for better social distancing and other pandemic precautions to create a safer educational environment for both students and faculty.
