It is proposed to introduce additions to the nomenclature of medical services provided. There was developed a section of occupational standards program “Specialist in hygiene”, on the job functions of a physician for common hygiene. It is proposed to include in the job functions of a physician for common hygiene the diagnostic testing in health centers in order to assess the functional reserves and adaptive capabilities of a person affected by adverse environmental factors, and the prescribing appropriate curative and preventive measures. Implementation of the proposed activities in the health centers will improve the efficiency of medical and preventive work of medical organizations and reduce the level of uncertainty of preventive activities carried out, and of the expected results of preventive work carried out by a therapist and a general practitioner (family doctor).
