At the second stage of the experiment, CG underwent specialized training aimed at forming and developing the communicative competence of future medical specialists, which was conducted during the Ukrainian language classes. At the third stage of the experiment, the level of formation of communicative competence and readiness for professional interpersonal interaction of future medical specialists of CG and EG were assessed using a specialized survey and compared in order to identify positive and/or negative impact caused by the training.
