The article is devoted to the research of the effectiveness of formation of students’ experimental competencies in hydrodynamics and hemodynamics at a medical university using the software "Heart-lung machine SORIN C5" [1]. On the basis of analysis of psychological and pedagogical literature, the professional experimental competencies of medical students are singled out and the role of virtual laboratory works in the development of students’ professional experimental competencies in higher medical education institutions is determined. The authors consider the use of information resources in the educational process on the example of the software product "Laboratory work "Study of the hemodynamics fundamentals using the apparatus "Heart-lung machine SORIN C5", which is an integral part of the discipline "Medical and Biological Physics". The paper describes the main structural elements and implementation of respective scenarios in the virtual laboratory work on hydrodynamics and hemodynamics. The article presents statistical check of the effectiveness of formation of students’ experimental competencies in hydrodynamics and hemodynamics based on the use of Student's t-test. The authors analyze the results of the conducted experiment and show that visualization, the use of web resources in physics and virtual laboratory work contribute to the formation of the logical and epistemological structure of the teaching material and the strengthening of the role of fundamental generalizations of concepts and theories. It is proved that the difference in the knowledge acquisition coefficients in the experimental and control groups is significant and depends not on random samples, but on the difference in the formation of the material structure and teaching methods in medical and biological physics. It has been established that the system of virtual laboratory works contributes to students’ training in general scientific methods of action, forms the proper professional, technological and experimental competence.
