Study course description
Preliminary Knowledge:
In human anatomy, histology, biochemistry.
Objective:
To give opportunity to the students aquire theoretical knowledge about physiological functions of human body, their mechanisms and regulation, in the physiological practice to register and evaluate various functions of the body.

Assessment
Unaided Work:
Before each class students should prepare answers to particular topics in order to be able to discuss the material in seminars. Students have to present and analyse in a protocol the results obtained in practice, write conclusions and submit the protocol for evaluation.
Assessment Criteria:
Successful participation in class discussions, accepted protocols of laboratory works, successful grades in all colloquiums. At the end of first semester – A semester test, at the end of complete course – a written exam.
Final Examination (Full-Time):Exam (Written)
Final Examination (Part-Time):Exam (Written)
Learning Outcomes
Knowledge:In the result of successful aquisition of the course students will be able to characterise functions of different organ systems, explain their regulatory mechanisms and evaluate physiological parameters in a healthy human.
Skills:At the end of the course students will have skills to register basic physiological functions, analyse obtained results, give solutions in related case situations.
Competencies:Students will be able to apply gained knowledge for evaluation of functional state of a person, solving situations related to nutritional disorders and giving recomendations in nutrition therapy.
