In the modern educational process, the problem of applying innovative teaching methods remains one of the most actual in pedagogical and research activities, and the issues of the use of digital information technologies (DIT) and distance education require constant monitoring and careful study.

The aim of the work was to optimize the implementation of the educational process (EP) of pharmacists-interns by mastering modern DIT standards, software capabilities and approaches to their use.

Following processes were analyzed: the organization of education of pharmacists-interns at the department of the OEF, the technology of medicines and pharmacoeconomics of the Postgraduate Faculty Danylo Halytsky Lviv national medical university; Results of anonymous questionnaires of pharmacists-interns; The possibilities of communication programs for smartphones.

The process of o organization education involves the operation of certain information and is responsible for its systematization, distribution between teachers, interns, study groups and streams. We implemented the distribution of such information for the purpose and temporary relevance to the following types: current or targeted (CTI) – relevant for a short period of time, provides for the submission of information to a particular intern or group of interns; Temporarily static (TSI) – is current and permanent only for interns of a specific training cycle; General conditionally constant information (GCI) – relevant for interns of any training cycle and from year to year almost does not change. We also worked out the existing forms of submitting this information to interns, optimized and tested them. Based on the received data, we began to use: chat programs of smartphones (for the CTI and the TSI); Pages of the department in social networks (for TSI, GCI); the site of the department pharmosvita.esy.es (for GCI) created by us. Also, we give in social networks and/or chat programs, a message about the change in GCI.

Based on the work done, the department optimized the use of DIT by teachers. One of its main results is a qualitative increase in the level of communication processes between teachers and pharmacists-interns.

The use of Google form allowed to interns to independently submit the information necessary for the organization of the EP at the time and place convenient for them, having all the necessary documents with data nearby.

Using by teachers of the Department of Google services and local computer network optimized the processes of joint formation and exchange of information. Optimizing the processes of operating information and automating the processes of obtaining it with the help of DIT made it possible to reduce the time spent on the organization, reporting, and the total amount of information load on teachers as a whole.
