But telemedicine cannot completely replace personal consultation with a doctor".
On the first day of the training course, several speakers from Turkey delivered lectures.
The topic "Cultural Barriers in Business Communication" was presented by Hulia Arslan, Ph.D., Head of the Department of the Russian Language and Literature at Yeditepe University. “There are many cultural differences.
