Study course description
Preliminary Knowledge:
Cytology, that is suggested to be acquired simultaneously with biochemistry, anatomy and physiology.
Objective:
To develop: an understanding about general and functional human histology and anatomy; macroscopic and microscopic structure of the cells, tissues and organs, especially digestion providing structures; a view about onthogenetical changes in above mentioned structures; morphofunctional changes of digestion providing organs; concept about critical periods and factors that are on basis of morphofunctional disorders of embryonal life of structures.
