Guide to the course in Physiology with Pathophysiology
  1. The course in physiology and pathophysiology comprises of 110 hours lectures and 140 hours of  seminars and intermediate exams. The course ends with the final exam. All exams are written  and have the multiple choice test (MCQ) format.  Retake exams may be oral or written.

  2. The attendance at seminars is mandatory. Three absences from seminars are allowed during the academic year. Absence from more than 3 seminars during the academic year qualifies the student for the additional general intermediate exam  before  becoming eligible for the final exam. In such case eligibility for the exam has to be approved by the Head of Department.

  3. Students should prepare themselves for the seminars. Each seminar starts with short entrance test (SET) consisting of 5 multiple choice questions related to the seminar’s topic. Correct answer gives 1 point per question. The number of points obtained from all SETs which precede a given intermediate exam will determine the eligibility of the student for this intermediate. At least 50% plus 1 point have to be scored in order to be eligible for the intermediate exam. For instance,  if there are 8 SETs before the intermediate, then maximum number of points one can get is 40, the minimum number of points needed is 21. Coming late for a seminar will result in exclusion from SET and obtaining zero points. If the number of points scored from SETs by a student is below the threshold, the student will be given unsatisfactory mark for the intermediate and will have to take the retake intermediate exam.

  4. There are four intermediate exams held after each thematic block of lectures and seminars (1. nervous system; 2. gastrointestinal tract, endocrine system, pregnancy and fetus; 3. blood and cardiovascular system; 4. respiratory and renal systems). A student has to pass all the intermediate exams  to become eligible for the final exam. A student is entitled to two retakes of each intermediate exam. Retakes will be held at the end of the course in the oral or written form. Unexcused absence from the intermediate exam will result in unsatisfactory mark and a need to take the retake exam.

  5. The final exam will be based on the seminars, lectures and recommended literature. The threshold for passing the final exam is above 56% of the maximum number of points.
