Aim of the course -

The aim of the subject is to provide students information on causes and mechanisms of basic pathologic processes and pathomorphologic characteristics of diseases.The course interconnects functional and morphological knowledge obtained in foregoing years and clinical specialties. It is essential for understanding principals of scientific medicine.

Requirements to the exam -

Conditions for getting a credit from pathological physiology:

1.Passing the pre-exam test from pathophysiology.

Terms for test writing will be done at the beginning of the summer term.

The test has the multiple-choice form. The students need 75% and more correct answers for successful passing.

2.Knowledge of the topics taught throughout the term. The principal way of evaluation is the case study individually given to and discussed with the teachers after writing the test. Students can use textbooks when they prepare the case study discussion, that´s why there is not the list of case studies on the faculty web pages.

If the student does not meet the teachers requirements for the credit (passing the test or sufficient knowledge of the pathophysiological principals of the case study), he (she) has another chance to write the test and to discuss the case study. If he (she) has failed again, the next possibility of getting credit is the examination by professor Mareš or other teachers of pathophysiology.

Students, who passed credit during the last school year, may not repeat it again. The credit is admitted.
