In Volyn, the court ordered a graduate of the Ivano-Frankivsk Medical University to return 128,000 hryvnias for his studies. After completing the internship, the boy refused to work for three years at the Ratnivska Central District Hospital, although this was determined by the terms of the contract.
As Zaxid.net writes with reference to the decision of the Ratniv District Court, the student enrolled in the state form of education at the Ivano-Frankivsk Medical University in 2011. The parties signed an agreement according to which, after graduation, the graduate will have to work for three years under referral at the Ratnivska Central District Hospital.
In case of refusal, he would be forced to return the money for studies and the received scholarship.
In 2017, the boy graduated. At the same time, he was sent to the Ratnivsk Central District Hospital for an internship. He finished his internship in 2020. After that, he was supposed to work in a medical facility for three years, but he refused.

When the State Audit Service inspected the activities of the educational institution, it found violations “that led to material damage to the state budget in connection with the failure of graduates of the university to work according to referrals.”
After that, the medical university filed a lawsuit against the graduate with a demand to reimburse the money spent on education.
Judge Oksana Svystun satisfied the claim. The graduate was ordered to reimburse the university 128 thousand hryvnias and another 2.6 thousand hryvnias in court costs.
The decision has not yet entered into legal force, the defendant can file an appeal.
