Pathological anatomy II
Learning outcomes of the course unit
The course is structured in ex cathedra lectures and practicals to enable students to acquire basic knowledge of pathology and simultaneously achieve professional independence. The qualifying time is the interpretation of the macro and microscopic disease patterns from his own knowledge gained during the lectures and individual study
