Course objectives
At the end of the course students should be able to understand pathophysiology of breathing, pulmonary function tests (spirometric, pletysmography, oxygen measurements), basic diagnosis and diferrential diagnosis of lung diseases (pneumonia, asthma bronchiale, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, tuberculosis, lung cancer, interstitial lung disease). Students should be able to understand basic X-ray interpretation. Students will be able to use the acquired information in differential diagnosis of dyspnea, cough, chest pain, hemoptysis.
Learning outcomes
Students should be able:
- to understand diagnostics and differential diagnosis of pulmonary diseases,
- evaluate physical findings of patients with lung disease,
- interpret pulmonary functional and radiological findings and suggest treatment.
  • The lessons are focused on getting both theoretical and practical experience covering the entire area of pulmonology. The practice is done at the bedside in the ward and by demonstrating different methods of examination. The theory is discussed in seminars organized in the Departments pulmonary classroom. Day 1: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease Day 2: Asthma bronchiale Day 3: Tuberculosis or lung cancer Day 4: Pneumonia. Day 5: Interstitial lung diseases. In the Simulation Center for Practical Training of Future Physicians, a practical demonstration of propedeutics with physical examinations, pulmonary functional examinations, analysis of blood gas, X-ray findings, drainage of pleural effusions, and bronchoscopic methods will be included.

Teaching methods
The lesson consists of the theory and the clinical practice (practical group projects - examinations of patients, descriptions of chest X-ray, presentations by professionals). It is assumed that the student has knowledge of pathological physiology, propedeutics and pharmacology. Practical training (about 10 % of the total volume of teaching) is complemented by a comprehensive range of simulation teaching methods on simulators with varying degrees of fidelity, trainers and virtual patients. Simulation results in subsequent debriefing (feedback to the student). There is also problem-oriented learning in the foreground, where the student is taught by solving the problem presented, as well as team-oriented teaching when small groups of students discuss and choose a solution of the problem. Emphasis is also placed on the development of soft skills, incl. so-called "21st century skills", particularly communication, decision-making skills, critical thinking, crisis communication and teamwork.
Assessment methods
The semester is closed by completing a simple multiple-choice test or an oral exam covering the information presented at the seminars. A 100% participation is a precondition for granting the credit. Traditional methods are complemented by objective clinical evaluation that verifies clinical knowledge and other skills such as communication, physical examination, performance, performance interpretation, etc. This evaluation method provides students with objective and specific feedback.
