Course objectives
Course objectives
At the end of the course students should be able to:
1. Understand and explain the structure of a cell, structural characteristics of epithels, connective and supporting tissues (incl. their function), muscle tissue including mechanism of muscle contraction and nerve tissue.
2. Identify basic tissues and main organs of body in histological slides.
3. Characterize microscopic structure of individual organs of human body and explain correlations of tissues within organs.
4. Describe gamete development, explain principle of meiosis and regulation of gametogenesis.
5. Define the early embryonic development as well as development of fetal membranes, placenta and umbilical cord.
6. Characterize stages of prenatal development and key developmental stages of individual organ systems;
7. Explain the mechanisms of the origin of some developmental anomalies and debate their clinical implications.

Teaching methods
practicals (course of practical microscopy)
Assessment methods
Attending on practicals is obligatory. Knowledge of microscopic structure of organs is checked with short oral examination (or writing test) and by practical microscopy. The knoledge level is classified with points: 100 points = A, 60 points = C, 25 points = E, 0 points = F. Precondition of the credit obtaining is to achieve 180 points.
Language of instruction
