Course objectives
To teach students to understand and interprete various functions of human body. An essential aim is that students acquire critical scientific thinking, ability of independent text analysis and fundamental information selection. At the end of the course, students will have sufficient theoretical background required for profession of dentist.
Learning outcomes
Student should be able to recall principles of human body functions in detail - from a cell level, across particular organs to a complex human organism. Students will be able to explain relationships among chemical, physical and biological factors of living processes.

Teaching methods
Lessons are led in the form of lectures.
Assessment methods
Final examination in Physiology consists of three parts:
- written multiple-choice test which consist of 20 questions evaluated by 20 points - students successfully pass the test if they reach at least 15 points;
- practical examination - students randomly choose one of the methods and practically demonstrate and explain the measured parameters;
- oral examination - students randomly choose 2 questions and answer them after 15 minutes of preparation.
Written test represents 10%, practical exam 20% and oral exam 70% of final grade. Students pass the examination at Physiology on condition that they succeed in all three abovementioned parts.
