In the preparation of the article, the methods of theoretical analysis of scientific literature were used to determine the actualities of training future masters of medicine at the current stage of the development of medical education. The methods of separation various aspects of the pedagogical activity of doctors were used to specify the content of scientific investigations in the context of comparing the directions of professional training of medical personnel in Ukraine and abroad. The methods of summarizing the results of scientific research were aimed at determining promising directions of scientific research in the context of professional training of future masters of medicine for pedagogical activity. Results. It has been established that the problem of the pedagogical activity of medical personnel in the systems of medical education and health care attracts the attention of researchers. It was found that the problem of professional training of medical students in the master's degree is outlined mostly in domestic studies. It is summarized that foreign researchers mostly devote their research to various aspects of interpersonal interaction at the “doctor-patient” level in the work of practicing doctors. Conclusions. One of the actualities of scientific research is the formation of pedagogical competence of medical personnel, which is manifested in the ability to teach and educate themselves and patients, as well as people who care for them, effectively using the entire scope of medical and psychological and pedagogical knowledge. An important task is outlined - to improve the system of master's training of future medical specialists with the aim of purposefully forming the readiness of master's graduates for teaching activities. We see the prospects for further scientific research in this direction in the methodical provision of the system of professional training of future masters of medicine for pedagogical activity.
