Physiology of Man
CESA-SFYZAcad. year: 2020/2021
Human physiology deals with normal functions of human organism, its organs and tissues, cells, cell organellas and molecules. It lays emphasis on how the partial functions are regulated to correspond to the situation at each time and how are simultaneously integrated into the higher, highly improved unit - organism.
Learning outcomes of the course unit
The student is able to describe the various systems of the human organism and processes taking place in it. He is able to apply this knowledge in practice - for example, when interpreting the measured signals. It is also able to describe the different regulatory mechanisms in the human body.
Knowledge at secondary school level in biology, chemistry and physics.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods
Teaching methods depend on the type of course unit as specified in the article 7 of BUT Rules for Studies and Examinations.
Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes
Students must meet a minimum number of points preexam test namely from all areas of physiology to successfully entering the exam. The following is oral examination, conducted in a form of interview with an emphasis on the ability of the student acquired knowledge not only to describe, but mutually and interdisciplinary connect with morphology and knowledge of biochemistry and physics.
