The Institute of Rural Health deals with rural health care and emphasizes on health care of people engaged in agriculture, forestry, food industry and wood processing. A number of researches and clinical developments and their adaptation to health care in practice take place at the institute. The study of the health care of rural population in terms of food safety, hygiene and toxicology are very important at the institute. Much attention is also paid to parasitological and microbiological research. The Institute has a laboratory and is involved into many research projects that are important for our university researchers because the Ternopil region is agricultural as well.
