Learning outcomes
Anatomy and physiology of man The target of the lectures and practical education is focused on knowledge of human anatomy and physiology, provided that particular systems must be detailed due to the orientation of the study programme. A special emphasize is put on anatomy of the skeleton and knowledge of the topographic situation.
After finishing the course the student is able to: - describe the individual anatomical structures of the bones and joints, - orientate in the fundamentals of topographic anatomy, orientate - orientate in the fundamentals of the gastrointestinal, respiratory and excretory system. The course is focused on the integration of the classical disciplines of microscopic anatomy, anatomy and physiology, the essentials of histology. It is focused on understanding of relationships between structure and function of the human organism. The teaching follows modern educational trends by using of the direct connection of the morphology and function of the individual systems. Seminar teaching is closely linked to the themes of the lectures and is linked with practical exercises. It is mainly problem oriented and uses activating methods to increase student motivation. In teaching are also used in computer programs (eg. ADAM and others).
Conditioning subjects: none
