Learning activities and teaching methods
Monologic (reading, lecture, briefing), Dialogic (discussion, interview, brainstorming), Demonstration
Learning outcomes
The aim of the course is to master the basics of functional human anatomy.
The student will be able to orientate in the field of basics of functional anatomy and the most basic knowledge necessary for understanding the context and mastering other subjects.

Assessment methods and criteria
Oral examination, Test

Combined exam (oral and written form of verification of study results) Additional requirements for the student leading to the completion of the course: 75% attendance at the course, successful completion of two continuous tests. The first test contains the curriculum of the first 5 teaching blocks. The second test contains the curriculum of the second 5 teaching blocks.
