Course objectives
At the end of the course students should be able: understand and explain biophysical principles and laws; operate basic biophysical measuring devices; evaluate obtained data by the basic biophysical methods in light of a scientific, effective, safe and efficient attitude to their use; understand principles of the more complex therapeutical and diagnostical medical devices except of imaging methods; discriminate possible usage of the biophysical methods and medical devices in practice;
Learning outcomes
After the finishing of the course students (with orientation on biomedical devices) will:
understand and explain biophysical principles and laws;
operate basic biophysical measuring devices;
evaluate obtained data by the basic biophysical methods;
understand principles of the more complex therapeutical and diagnostical medical devices except of imaging methods;
discriminate possible usages of the biophysical methods and medical devices in practice;

Teaching methods
Practical exercises
Assessment methods
Basic requirement is the full atendance in the lessons. Theoretical knowledges of the principles used methods are continuously controled by oral examination. For all tasks students must elaborate comprehensive report, these are graded. Course is finished by the multiple choice test consisting usually 20 questions, evaluated by 20 points. For successfully mastered test student need at least 10 points.
