Course content
Histology and Embryology for medical students in English language program is taught in two semesters. In the first semester, students are given information about structure and function of cells and tissues in human body. In the second semester, students study microscopic structure (microscopic anatomy) of all organs in the human body. In the embryology part of the subject, a detailed information about human development during embryonic and fetal periods is given. This is continued with developmental morphology of organ systems.

Learning activities and teaching methods
Lecture, Monologic Lecture(Interpretation, Training), Observation, Projection (static, dynamic), Laboratory Work, Activating (Simulations, Games, Dramatization)
Learning outcomes
Contents of the second part comprise the microscopic anatomy and embryology of organ systems.
It is vital for the further study of pathology and the knowledge of the prenatal development will be utilized in following subjects (i.g. pediatry, surgery, obstetrics).
