Course objectives
At the end of the course, students will have sufficient theoretical background required for profession of physician. Student should be able to recall principles of human body functions in detail - from a cell level, across particular organs to a complex human organism. Students 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.
Learning outcomes
Ability to interprete physiological functions of human body with respect of further studied subjects.

Teaching methods
Lessons are led in the form of lectures.
Assessment methods
Final examination in Physiology consists of three parts:
- written multiple-choice test which consist of 20 questions evaluated by 20 points - students successfully pass the test if they reach at least 15 points;
- practical examination - students randomly choose one of the methods and practically demonstrate and explain the measured parameters;
- oral examination - students randomly choose 2 questions and answer them after 15 minutes of preparation.
Written test represents 10%, practical exam 20% and oral exam 70% of final grade. Students pass the examination at Physiology on condition that they succeed in all three abovementioned parts.
