Course objectives
Student is able to nominate anatomical structures of the respiratory system, cardiovascular system, peripheral and central nerve systems after lectures of the anatomy in the second term. Student is able to explain the meaning of particular organs and whole organs systems. Student will be able to apply obtained knowledge to the function of active and passive locomotor systems. Student should be able to evaluate the interaction of particular organs of the human body during its movement. Student should be theoretically prepared for the study of pre- and clinical subjects after passing the anatomy lectures of the second term. Student should be able to evaluate the normal stage of human body during its rest and during movements as well and to use this knowledge in his/her practice.
Learning outcomes
The student should be able to orientate in the discussed organ systems. He/she should know the basics of the anatomy of the nervous system and he/she should be well oriented in the topic of topographic anatomy of limbs and back.

Teaching methods
To achieve the required knowledge of the locomotor system I, it is necessary to pass a theoretical preparation during the lessons and also an individual study of student texts and the anatomical atlases. In practical courses, students should verify their theoretical knowledge on anatomical models and human bones, joints and muscles. During individual studies, students can borrow osteological preparations from the collections of the Anatomical department or study locomotor system on the preparations in the Anatomical Museum. Also, they can study the locomotor system in the x-ray study room and use programmes with anatomy subjects in the PC study room. Of course, during the whole term can students consult difficult parts of anatomy with their lecturers.
Assessment methods
Required level of knowledge is being continuously verified by short written tests and by evaluation of practical knowledge of particulate anatomical formations on preparations of the human body in practical lessons. Student is evaluated for active presence in lessons by credits at the end of each term. Students have to demonstrate obtained knowledge by a final written test at the end of the second term. It is necessary to obtain at least 75% correct answers in the test to pass (written test with 16 questions; for completion of a course is necessary to answer minimally 12 of them correctly).
