Study course description
Preliminary Knowledge:
Biology, anatomy, histology, physiology, pathophysiology, biochemistry, microbiology, propedeutics, pharmacology and internal diseases.
Objective:
During the course students will acquire knowledge about fundaments of aetiology of the most common skin, mucous, skin-derived and venereal diseases, basics of pathogenesis, characteristic clinical score, principles of laboratory examination, crucial diagnostic criteria and principles of treatment. They will be competent in using advanced medical technologies in dermatovenereology. The objective of the course is to develop theoretical understanding of indications and contraindications of physical therapy methods in cases of various skin conditions and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) in view of their epidemiology and aetiology, aware of clinical score, principles of diagnostics and treatment. Upon practical analysis of the progress of patient’s condition and medical records, skills in planning physical therapy options shall be acquired.

Learning Outcomes
Knowledge:Students will recognise skin and sexually transmitted diseases and characterise specifics of their clinical score in different age groups; will describe principles of diagnostics and differentiated diagnostics of skin and sexually transmitted diseases and develop skills in patient care; will record and describe modern methods of medical examination and treatment in dermatology and venereology.
Skills:Student will be able to assess condition of the patient’s skin, recognise symptoms of skin and venereal diseases; analyse and correctly interpret obtained medical data and findings of examinations establishing necessity and possibility to apply physical therapy.
Competencies:Cooperate with physicians, colleagues, patients and their family members on professional level; interpret findings of examinations and apply them in treatment; respect wishes of a patient and comply with the law.
