Course objectives
To teach students to understand and interprete various functions of human body. An essential aim is that students acquire critical scientific thinking, ability of independent text analysis and fundamental information selection. After finishing the course, students will be able to understand the terms used in general and systemic physiology of man. Students will acquire knowledge necessary for analysis and subsequent interpretation of phenomena taking place on cell, tissue and organ levels as well as on the level of whole human organism.

Teaching methods
Tuition is done in the form of seminar. Students should read the literature of particular area of physiology, and they eventually prepare their own presentation of the topic. During the seminars, students present the topics and intensify their knowledge in discussion with the teacher.
Assessment methods
The course-unit credit is conditioned by full attendance and 60% control of preparedness in the seminars (control test on the beginning of seminar - 6 and more points).
Language of instruction
