Course objectives
At the end of the course students should be able to:
1. Describe cardiovascular organs, organs of senses, peripheral and central nervous systems
2. Explain functon of the cardiovascular system, senses, peripheral and central nervous systems
3. Relate cardiovascular organs, organs of senses, peripheral and central nervous systems with respect to adjacent structures
4. Identify distribution and function of the sympathetic and parasympathetic components of the autonmic nervous system
5. Define topographical regions of the head, neck, thorax, abdomen, and pelvis
6. Identify basic anatomical structures (bones, joints, viscera, vessels, and nerves) in the regions of the head, neck, thorax, abdomen, and pelvis
7. Review mutual continuity between particular organ systems.
Learning outcomes
Students should be able to describe cardiovascular organs, organs of senses, peripheral and central nervous systems and explain their function. Then define topographical regions of the head, neck, thorax, abdomen, and pelvis.

Teaching methods
Assessment methods
The subject is evaluated in the scope of the final examination.
Final examination:
The final examination in Anatomy consists of a practical and a theoretical part. To pass successfully the exam, the student has to obtain at least the grade E in both practical and theoretical parts of the final examination.
The practical part of final examination is represented by the results of the examinations in Anatomy I - Dissection and Anatomy II - Dissection. The student, who has not obtained at least grade E during above-mentioned courses, will be re-examined at the respective date of the theoretical part of the final examination in Anatomy.
The theoretical part of final examination first proceeds in the form of a test with subsequent oral examination. To be entitled to proceed to oral examination, the student has to obtain at least 12 out of 18 points in the test. When successful at the test the student does not repeat it during a re-sit date. The student takes the test only during the regular and 1st re-sit dates. When unsuccessful at the test during the 1st re-sit date, the student will not repeat the test before the oral examination of the 2nd re-sit date. In the course of oral examination the student answers 4 questions selected by lot out of preannounce sets of questions and presents anatomical descriptions of two imaging techniques.
