Learning outcomes
After completing the course, students should be able to: describe the anatomy and physiology of the various organ systems of the human organism.
The content of the course builds on the basic knowledge of the subject of biology at secondary schools about the structure of the human body and assumes knowledge of terminology secondary human biology. Curriculum briefly describes the structure of some organic compounds, which are necessary to understand the basics of genetics and physiology of the system, then focuses on the Revision of basic genetic concepts. It is developed in the most common problems of hereditary diseases, prenatal diagnosis, genetic counseling and genetic testing.
The prerequisite is completion: - The subject of biology in the context of grammar school curriculum - Study biology disciplines the child and adolescent
