Upon completion of the course the student should be able to:
- understand the structure, development and function of the human body in order to manage the rest of the preclinical and clinical studies
- identify and describe the structures essential for all medical doctors in diagnostics and treatment, especially for first aid.
- demonstrate common anatomical knowledge for understanding medical theory and research and for dealing with evidence based medicine.
Upon completion of the medical cell and developmental biology part of the course the student should be able to:
- describe the structure of various cell types (especially mammalian cells) and the structure and function of cell organelles
- describe cell growth and cell division
- present the principles of the regulation of cell function and genetic regulation
- list the common research techniques in cell biology
- display an understanding of gametogenesis, fertilization, embryonal development (0-40days) and its regulation as well as the development of embryonal malformations.
- display an understanding of human growth and development.
- identify and describe the basic tissues of the human body and the microscopic structure of the tissues for understanding their normal and pathological function
Upon completion of the anatomy part of the course the student should be able to
- describe the structure of the organs and their topography in the body as well as surface projections of the internal organs.
- understand the main principles of the embryonal development.
- recognize the main histological structures that are important for the function of the organs as well as structures which are important for pathological processes.
- demonstrate the organs in living body, in preparations of the cadavers, anatomical models, X-ray images, diagrammatic drawing and in manual examination.
