The study of Pathological physiology course in the summer semester 2022/2023


Lectures will take place online via MS Teams.

a)    The teachers will provide students with a recording in advance to study the material. At the time of the scheduled lecture, students will meet the teacher via MS Teams, where they can consult the lecture.


b)    The teacher will meet students online via MS Teams directly at the time of the lecture to explain and discuss the topic while recording it. The recording will be available in MS Teams.

Individual teachers will inform students in advance about the form of the lecture.



Seminars will take place in combination:

Part 1:

During the first part, the students will individually study the teacher's materials and recordings provided in advance through MS Teams.


Part 2:

The second part will be face-to-face. Teachers will test students' knowledge (test/oral) to verify that they have studied the provided material, re-explain key or more complex theses, and do other activities related to the topic. During the meeting, students will also have the opportunity to consult their questions. Students will be rewarded with extra points for their activity and knowledge on seminars that will be included in the final course evaluation.


During the semester, students will write 2 continuous tests. Each test will have 25 multiple-choice questions. The topic of each test is stated in the Schedule. In case of failure (less than 60%), a student can re-write a test up to 2 times during the 13th compensatory week. Testing will take place through Moodle in the computer room of FMCU.


Detailed information about the Pathological physiology course can be found in the document "Course information" in the sections for each study program.



Announcement for students transferring the course of Pathological Physiology 2

Announcement for students transferring the course of Pathological Physiology 2

Students who have repeatedly enrolled (transferred) course Pathological Physiology 2 in the academic year 2022/2023 and have met the conditions for participation in the final exam in their previous studies will have seminars and credit tests recognized to the full extent.

Students who have met the conditions for participation in the final exam in Pathological Physiology 2 in the summer semester 2021/2022 and have this course repeatedly enrolled (transferred) to the academic year 2022/2023 will be able to register for the exam in Pathological Physiology 2 already in the exam period of the winter semester 2022/2023. Within a re-enrolled (transferred) course, the student has the right to one regular exam term and one re-examination term (the possibility of a re-examination term depends on the availability of exam terms). The re-examination of the re-enrolled (transferred) course is held in the presence of a committee.



Exam instructions in summer semester 2022/2023

Final exam from Pathological Physiology in the summer semester 2022/2023

Requirements for applying for the Pathological Physiology exam are under the condition of completing prerequisites: General Medicine from Pathological physiology 1 and Dentistry from Medical Biochemistry for Dentistry 2 (verification through AIS2). If the student does not meet these criteria, they will not be admitted to the exam of Pathological Physiology.

Students, who completed the practical study of Pathological Physiology, apply for the exam via AIS2. The exam dates are announced consistently with the study and exam rules. 

The exam is in person. On exam day, students come to the Institute at 8:00

On the oral examination, the student will present their ISIC and draw out three random questions, one from each exam questions cluster (general pathophysiology, pathophysiology of cardiovascular system, pathophysiology of other systems). The condition for successfully passing the exam is to answer all three questions. The student can prepare written replies; the necessary time provided by the examiner is about 20 minutes. The examiner will ask the student to prepare the question from the cardiovascular system in writing; it will be kept at the Institute as evidence concerning the exam. Cheating during the exam is the reason for exam interruption and Fx grade. A student registered for an exam that fails to appear will score a grade Fx.

Registration for an exam and possible deregistration, permitted by AIS2, is in the student's competency. In AIS, a student can register for the exam up to 48 hours before the exam term and deregister until 24 hours before the exam term. Therefore, we encourage students to be considerate of other students when deregistering from the exam so that other students have sufficient time needed to apply for the released dates!

If the student wants to deregister the date that AIS2 cannot permit, they can request it in written form to the Head of the Institute. The student who fails to appear for the exam and wants to apologize can do so five days after the exam with a written letter to the Head of the Institute via the secretary's e-mail (lenka.libakova@fmed.uniba.sk).

Any changes to the form of the final exam will be announced to students in advance.
