The article analyses syntactic features of network medical discourse (NMD). It is shown that various forms of virtual interaction are successfully used in different NMD genres, including forums, personal websites, social networks, advertisements, banners, emails, Internet chats and many others, each of which is characterized by specific features, conceptualization and internal content. The authors state that the influence of the Internet environment leads to transformations of all the language system levels, conceptualizing the internal discourse content. The Internet has the most influence on professional medical communication within forums, which is reflected in syntactic constructions.

 The syntactic side of a statement is one of the most effective tools for exerting speech influence: it has its own stylistic functionality and takes an active part in the process of implementing speech strategies and tactics. The syntactic side of NMD is characterized by the use of numerous constructions such as addresses, hortatory constructions, interrogative constructions, negative constructions, conditional sentences, and parcelling. These constructions function and interact in different ways within various NMDs, reflecting the goals and communicative intentions of communicants.

The analysis showed that the syntactic design of various NMD genres varies considerably. The above syntactic constructions affect the addressee in different ways and are aimed at the implementation of specific pragmatic functions set by the addresser.

The analysis of texts revealed a number of features that will help us to gain an insight into many aspects of professional communication in the modern business community. The materials of the article can be used for linguistic and methodological purposes: in the course of training future doctors in professional communication skills as well as in university courses in communication theory, speech communication theory, speech culture, discourse theory and text interpretation.

Keywords: network medical discourse, professional communication, syntactic features, genre features.
