The article discusses the directed formation of motivation and professional orientation in students towards professions in the field of preventive medicine, such as the professions of an epidemiologist and a general hygiene doctor. The method that we have developed for the directed formation of cognitive interest in a particular profession makes it possible to create a guided vocational guidance for high school students depending on the social order. The complexity of the problem lies in the fact that the target of our study is students of specialized medical classes, who have already developed a cognitive interest and professional orientation toward the future speciality of a medical practitioner, while neither epidemiologist nor general hygienist is involved in treating patients. The specially carried out work on the directed formation of cognitive interest and professional orientation to the profession of a doctor of epidemiologist, general hygiene doctor solved the problem.
