The paper considers the relationship between the degree of desynchronosis in students and the form of their education. A total of 144 students of the Krasnoyarsk State Medical University were surveyed to obtain statistical data. The results were statistically processed by a nonparametric analysis. It is shown that the level of desynchronosis decreases, but the quality of the educational process decreases during distance learning (DL). Attention is drawn to the reduction in physiological and cognitive parameters (the worse quality of sleep and its shorter duration, academic underachievement) in students after leaving distance education for full-time education. The paper gives options for possible correction of the identified disorders

biological rhythms
distance learning
post-distance learning syndrome
