The priorities of modern education are defined in the normative documents of international conventions. They are the roadmaps for reforming Ukrainian science and moving towards integration into European communities. The National Doctrine on the Development of Education of Ukraine in the 21st Century identifies a priority task, which is to educate people in the spirit of responsible attitude to their own health and the health of others as the highest individual and social value [1]. The modernization of modern vocational education has led to increased requirements for the training of medical professionals. In the context of health care reforms, they must provide the skilled patient care, organize sanitary and epidemic regimens, take rehabilitation measures, be familiar with regulations, the latest manipulation techniques and medical technologies. All this requires an increase in the formation of educational and cognitive competence. While striving for comprehensive personality development, teachers sometimes forget about the overload that causes neuroses of future junior specialists. Competently organized self-educational activities of students of the 1st year of medical colleges, observance of valeological requirements, familiarization with health preventive and educational measures are able to improve vocational training that responds to modern challenges. Therefore, medical and educational foundations of health are based on the knowledge of the person, his physiological and psychological characteristics. An important role in the formation of students’ educational and cognitive competence is played by the understanding of the importance of improving their own theoretical knowledge and practical skills.
