Course objectives
At the end of the course students should be able to understand pathophysiology of breathing, pulmonary function tests (spirometric, pletysmography, oxygen measurements), basic diagnosis and diferrential diagnosis of lung diseases (pneumonia, asthma bronchiale, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, tuberculosis, lung cancer, interstitial lung disease). Students should be able to understand basic X-ray interpretation. Students will be able to use the acquired information in differential diagnosis of dyspnea, cough, chest pain, hemoptysis.
Learning outcomes
Students should be able to understand diagnostics and differential diagnosis of pulmonary diseases, evaluate physical findings of patients with lung disease, interpret pulmonary functional and radiological findings and suggest treatment.
  • The lessons are focused on getting both theoretical and practical experience covering the entire area of pulmonology. The practice is done at the bedside in the ward and by demonstrating different methods of examination. The theory is discussed in seminars organized in the Departments pulmonary classroom. Day 1: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease Day 2: Asthma bronchiale Day 3: Tuberculosis or lung cancer Day 4: Pneumonia. Day 5: Interstitial lung diseases. In the Simulation Center for Practical Training of Future Physicians, a practical demonstration of propedeutics with physical examinations, pulmonary functional examinations, analysis of blood gas, X-ray findings, drainage of pleural effusions, and bronchoscopic methods will be included.
