The issue of academic mobility was actualized after the accession of Ukraine to the European educational and scientific environment. However, implementation of this principle of providing real credit transfer and learning outcomes according to the methodology of ECTS is quite challenging even today if applied to training of medical students. Several reasons can be indicated for that. Firstly, systems of higher education in the countries of European Union and in Ukraine differ in educational levels, anticipated results as well as in the mechanisms of regulation by the state. Thus, the search of opportunities for creating conditions of the gradual equalization of educational content between different players in the educational market in Europe is urgent. Secondly, implementation of the transition of higher medical education to the training of masters of medicine in accordance with the provisions of the Law of Ukraine "On Higher Education" and introduction of new curriculum by the Ministry of Health of Ukraine has created the basis for differences with the previous curriculum of training specialists on the specialty "General medicine". Thus, comparison of the volume of teaching disciplines for students of the same specialties in different countries is extremely relevant from the point of view of harmonization of efforts for further development of joint educational environment. But equally important is the analysis of changes in the distribution of academic hours from the disciplines that took place during the transition of higher medical education in our country to training specialists in the specialty "General Medicine" for the training of specialists of the second (master's) level of higher education in the specialty "Medicine". In the article the outcomes of comparative analysis of curricula for training medical students in HEIs of Ukraine and some countries of Europe is presented in terms of the number of credits from biological and bioorganic chemistry – one of the key medical biological disciplines. Comparing the educational load from the biological chemistry in HEIs in Ukraine and abroad provides additional grounds for predicting the possibility of recognition credits in the context of academic mobility of medical students.
