fields of study / plans the course is directly associated with
Course objectives
At the end of the course students should be able: understand and explain biophysical principles and laws; master biophysical principles of the main 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; discriminate possible usage of the biophysical techniques and medical devices in practice;Besides the deeper understanding of principles of medical devices, the interactions „healthcare professional-device“ and „patient-device“ are underlined and the resulting risks explained more in detail. Interpretation of the quality and performance indicators is a new feature in these lectures.
Learning outcomes
After finishing the course the students will - understand basic principles of the devices used in medidine, be able of safe and efficient attitude to their use.

Teaching methods
Assessment methods
The exam consists of written test consisting of 25 questions and oral part, which can be done only when the number of correctly answered question is 14 at least. The oral part consists of 2 questions as a rule. The examined student has to be able explain the problems and characterise their possible clinical importance.
