Course objectives
At the end of this course, student
* defines importance of individual bacterial findings in different clinical materials
* analyzes the difference between common microbial flora, transient findings, contamination and pathogens in different localisations
* judges what infections are rather rare and what infections use to be common
* describes basic approaches of diagnostics and treatment of the most typical microbial diseases; nevertheless, here only basis can be given, and more detailed knowledge should be given in clinical subjects, especially Infectology
Learning outcomes
Student is able to define common microflora (if present)/transient findings/common contaminants/pathogens of
* different parts of upper and lower respiratory ways, lungs and middle ear
* different parts of gastrointestinal tract, liver, bile bladder and pancreas
* different parts of urinary tract
* different parts of genital system
* different parts of central and peripherial nervous system
* bloodstream, bones, muscles and various tissues
* skin, eyes, external ear

Student also will know specific problems of microbial infections
* during pregnancy, during birth and in first days after bith
* of in-patients, especially immunocompromised (hospital infections) ================================

Teaching methods

self-study for the final exam
Assessment methods
Attendance at lectures is not checked, but is recommended.
The subject is finished by the exam that has three parts. A student that is not successful at any of the parts does not continue to other parts. The exception is a student coming to his/her last resit. Such student always absolves all three parts, and a co-examiner is present at the third part.
(1) Written admission test consists of 20 questions, mostly "single best answer" type, partially also filling in missing word or other type questions. Students having at least 14 correct answers are considered having successfully done this part. Students coming to a resit term and having the test successfully completed in one of previous attempts do not have to redo the test again.
(2) Practical examination means doing a task picked by a student, or given to him by a teacher. Students coming for a resit term do not have to absolve the practical part repeatedly if they have got value "A" or "B" at one of previous attempts. Elaborating of a written protocol from the practical part may be requested.
(3) Theoretical part means that student picks one question for each of three groups of questions. The total number of questions is approximately 180. The student elaborates the questions in written form, signs them and gives them to the teacher. The teacher asks additional questions to them orally. After that, the student is evaluated.
Warning 1: At any part of the exam the student may be told to show his/her protocols from practical sessions. The quality of the protocols may be taken into account at the final evaluation.
Warning 2: Skipping the test and/or the practical part cannot be done in case of students coming again for their regular exam term in a repeatedly registered subject.
Note: Student that failed at part (1) and (2) and feel disadvantaged may appeal to the head-examiner during next 60 minutes.
