Teaching methods
Classes take place periodically in the afternoon. The lectures are followed by practical exercises with discussion.

The lectures discuss the basic issues of the subject. This knowledge is further deepened via specific practical tasks in exercises.

Materials for self-study and preparation for exercises will be available in the interactive syllabus/study materials for each topic, including references to the relevant chapters in the textbook.

2 absences from practical lessons are possible.
Assessment methods
3 continuous multiple-choice tests (time limit: 15 min) and 1 prescription test in a paper form. MCQ tests will not be repeated. The prescription test can be repeated only twice.

Each multiple-choice test contains 15 questions. The number of correct answers is given. Student gets 1 point for each completely correct answer, i.e. maximum 15 points for each multiple-choice test; total 45 points for all three MCQ tests.

The prescription test consists of two read-made preparations. For both preparations, the active substance, the drug dosage form and the number of original packages to be prescribed will be listed. The prescription handbook will be available for the test.

To obtain credits, the student has to pass the prescription test successfully and also get at least 6 points from each single multiple-choice test and at least 20 points (minimum) from all three MCQ tests.

Note: Together with the new accreditation of the Pharmacology subject for students of General Medicine, a system of continuous assessment of the student was introduced, when the results achieved in multiple-choice tests in practical lessons and colloquium will be taken into account and included in the final mark from the subject.
