The subject Anatomy is an elementary pre-clinical discipline, whose role is to give a comprehensive overview of the state of the animal’s body with regards to the topography of individual organs in conjunction with clinical practice. Education in the subject Anatomy is intended for the systematic, topographic and clinical anatomy according to individual types of farm animals (horse, ruminant animals, pigs, carnivores), laboratory animals (mouse, rat, rabbit) and fowl. By taking the course students acquire the basic knowledge as to body segmentation, the motion apparatus and other individual body systems as part of splanchnology, angiology, and neurology. In the case of anatomy education in the subject Basics of anatomy, students of ŠP Farmácia can gain the basic knowledge of the anatomy of man as well as laboratory animals. They also acquire an overview in the fields of osteology, myology, splanchnology, angiology and neurology. Students gain knowledge at individual levels and directions of the human body, areas and topographies of organs. The instruction runs in the form of lectures and practical exercises.

The subject of histology and embryology is a preclinical discipline that deals with the study of the ultrastructure of cells, the study of the normal microscopic structure of tissues and organs, and the study of the prenatal development of organism from a morphological aspect. The teaching of the subject is divided into three parts - general histology, special histology and embryology. The teaching is based on the knowledge obtained by conventional methods of light and electron microscopy. In all study programs, teaching is carried out in the form of lectures and practical exercises using classic light microscopes.

The education of pathological anatomy is includes of compulsory subjects: Pathological Anatomy, Diagnostic Pathology and Pathology; as well as compulsory optional subjects: Applied Cytology and Principles of Good Laboratory Practice for undergraduate students in the study programs: General Veterinary Medicine, Food Hygiene and Pharmacy.

Pathological Anatomy focuses on the teaching of macroscopic and microscopic changes arising during pathological processes. Teaching is divided into two parts - General and Special Pathology, which includes practical training (autopsy with histological examination), tutorials and lectures. The aim of the course Diagnostic Pathology is to present pathological changes of important diseases in different species of animals and their differential diagnosis. The content of the course Applied Cytology is a demonstration of cytological changes as a morphological diagnostic method used on various tissues and organs in various pathological processes. For the students of the study program Pharmacy, the subject Pathology provides basic information about general pathological processes and the subject Principles of Good Laboratory Practice represents an introduction to the application of GLP principles in practice.
