Course objectives
To teach students to understand and interprete various functions of human body.
Learning outcomes
At the end of the course, students will:
- have sufficient theoretical background required for profession of dentist.
- be able to recall principles of human body functions in detail - from a cell level, across particular organs to a complex human organism.
- will be able to explain relationships among chemical, physical and biological factors of living processes.
- An essential aim is that students acquire critical scientific thinking, ability of independent text analysis and fundamental information selection.
