Programme information

The course of Histology and Embryology is divided into two semesters (summer-winter) and consists of lectures (2 hours per week) and practical exercises (3 hours per week).

Topics designed to guide the student through all the topics general histology, histological techniques (summer semester) and microscopic anatomy and embryology (winter semester) and to acquire all necessary knowledge of the histological structure of organs and organ systems as well as their development, all with an emphasis on functional histology and clinical correlations.

Only with this knowledge one can fully understand subsequent subjects like physiology, pathological anatomy and pathophysiology.

Information about the Final Exam

The examination from the subject "Histology and Embryology" consists of a practical part and an oral (theoretical) part, both parts of the exam taking place on the same day.

The practical exam starts at 8:00 in the morning in the large practical room of the Institute of Histology and Embryology (3rd floor). Each student will receive 10 unmarked histological specimens, which he had the opportunity to study during two semesters during practical exercises or during individual visits to the large practical room during dedicated hours (3rd floor of the building of the New Theoretical Institutes).

The student must determine the name and staining of each organ (or impregnation technique). The student can get 8 points for the correct determination of the specimen and 2 points for the determination of the histological staining - ie 10 points for each specimen together. The duration of the practical test is 30 minutes. A minimum of 70% success rate (i.e. 70 points out of 100) is required to pass the practical exam.

After successfully passing the practical exam, the student proceeds to the oral part, choosing one question from 3 areas. The list of questions is available at the institute's secretariat, on the institute's websit and at MS Teams respectively.
