Course objectives
After completing this course the students are able to explain basic etiopathogenesis of diseases (physical, chemical and biological including genetic) and their consequences. The outcome of the education is to induce ability to understand logic base of clinical manifestation of diseases using both analytical ans synthetical approaches.
