Teaching activities

Teaching the subject Anatomy is focused on systemic, topographic, and clinical anatomy of individual species of farm animals (horses, ruminants, pigs, carnivores), laboratory animals (mice, rats, rabbits), and poultry.

The subject Anatomy is an elementary pre-clinical discipline, whose role is to give a comprehensive overview of the structure of animal and human bodies with regard to the topography of individual organs in connection with clinical practice. By completing the course, students acquire the basic knowledge of the division of animal bodies , the musculoskeletal system and other individual body systems within splanchnology, angiology, and neurology. By learning anatomy as a part of the subject Basics of Anatomy, students of the Pharmacy study programme can gain the basic knowledge of human and laboratory animals anatomy. This knowledge provides them with an overview in the fields of osteology, myology, splanchnology, angiology, and neurology. Students acquire knowledge about the individual planes and directions of the human body, areas and topography of organs.
The teaching takes place in the form of lectures, practical exercises and blocks. The practical exercises are carried out in the form of dissections.

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

The subject Pathological Anatomy focuses on the teaching of macroscopic and microscopic changes that occur during pathological processes. Syllabi are divided into two parts - general and special pathology and include practical exercises (autopsy and histological) and lectures. The aim of the subject Diagnostic Pathology is to present pathological changes of important diseases in various species of animals and their differential diagnosis. The subject Applied Cytology demonstrates cytology as a morphological diagnostic method on various tissues and organs during different pathological processes. For students of the Pharmacy study programme, the subject Pathology provides basic information on general pathological processes and the subject Principles of Good Laboratory Practice introduces the application of GLP principles in practice.
