Student Scientific Society meeting held once a week during school hours in the premises of the department and medical diagnostic rooms Pediatric Surgery Clinic named after N. L. Kusch on the basis of the regional children's hospital in Donetsk. The duration of their training is usually three hours. Familiarizing students to the search operation, as well as in science, greatly increases their interest in learning and the chosen specialty, leads to a significant increase in the level of medical knowledge and practical skills.

Thematic course of such employment is known in advance, the schedule for both semesters has been made at the beginning of the school year. Preference is given to topics that are leaders in scientific and medical activities of the department.

One of the fundamental moment in the organization of research work of students is the choice of research topics, which to determine for many years the direction of scientific interests of the student. The scientific leader helps him in this? But also the student may determine himself in one of scientific problem, what he wants to solve.
