Learning outcomes of the course unit
The course of histology is a part of the course of basic sciences. The target of the course is to allow the student to know and to understand the essential elements of the tissues and organs structure. The student will utilize knowledge and understanding for Anatomy and Physiology future study.
At the end of the course the student will demonstrate knowledge and understandin about: Cell strucrute and organization, Tissue structure and organization, Multi tissutal units structure and organization
