The educational process at the Faculty of Medicine was formed over the years, as the foundation on which trains specialists. Methods of teaching, in principle, remain classic, constantly improving and changing only the introduction of new learning technologies. Such an approach is necessary in connection with the scientific and technical process and the ability of specialists continuously acquire new knowledge. Teaching staff organizes classes not only in the transmission of information to students how to stimulate their cognitive activity, ie, the search for new and improved forms of traditional teaching, optimization and intensification of educational process, increasing the volume and level of organization of independent work of students under the supervision of teachers.

On the first-second-year medical students, as well as in all CIS universities, study fundamental disciplines.

In the educational process is widely used test control tasks prepared in the departments as a stage during the conversion examinations and state certification of graduates of the faculty.

The chemical and physical laboratories, students independently carry out experiments, animal experiments, dissection, as well as have the ability to independently (outside the classroom) to prepare for the next lesson. Duty teachers and technicians provide advice, help parse obscure topics, take mining missed classes. For students in the service of teaching and laboratory building has a library with a reading room, dining room, two lecture halls.

Enough equipped medical facilities in Nalchik (see above) allows students to train at the level of modern science and technology.

Starting with the 3rd year students of the Faculty of Medicine, as well as students of all higher CIS medical schools are beginning to study the clinical disciplines. First of all: internal medicine, and surgical diseases, obstetrics and gynecology. Thus, nine semesters, total of 4.5 years, the future doctors learning process takes place in various clinics at the bedside.
