Teaching methods
Most practicals follow the topic of pharmacology lectures. The knowledge is further deepened and practiced on specific practical tasks followed by subsequent discussion.
Assessment methods
The students have to prove the active knowledge of pharmacology. The students have to pass multiple-choice written revision tests to get credits. Each test contains 10 questions. One point is granted for each correctly answered question.

Students have to score at least 3 points from each test and score at least 10 points from all tests together to get credits. The test cannot be repeated. The points reached over the minimum value are added to the score of the final exam test.

Teacher's information
In the autumn semester of 2020, teaching is governed by faculty traffic lights, seminars are taught primarily in person, in cases of quarantine of students or teachers, we will use synchronous teaching in online mode, or hybrid teaching by a combination of full-time and synchronous online teaching.

In case of quarantine, the student is obliged to contact the teacher by email and agree on the next step.

If the student does not have the possibility of a synchronous online connection to the teaching of seminars through the MS Teams application, he is entitled to 2 absences per semester.

Online participation is considered to be completed attendance at exercises.

The information will be updated according to the development of the epidemiological situation.

The topics, which will be composed of questions of written multi-choice tests, correspond to the topics discussed according to the syllabus of practicals. Knowledge of these topics will be required in the range of compulsory literature (Pharmacology for students of bachelor’s programmes at MF MU) and study materials provided by the teacher. Students will supplement these resources with additional notes during the teacher's presentation.

When repeating the course, it is necessary to complete the course to the full extent.

The course is also listed under the following terms Autumn 2012, Autumn 2013, Autumn 2014, Autumn 2015, Autumn 2016, Autumn 2017, autumn 2018, autumn 2019.
