Course objectives
This newly introduced subject focuses on overview exercising of substantial problems from the point of view of anatomist, embryologist, physiologist, pathological physiologist, pathologist, microbiologist, immunologist and finally, corresponding clinician. Using this approach we will conceptually approach closer to strategy of USMLE, Step 1.
Learning outcomes
Student will be able to: explain the general connections between the knowledge taught in so-called theoretical subjects and their application in the diagnosis and therapy of disease states in clinical practice. Furthermore, they will understand the importance of basic research for clinical practice.
