Announcement for students transferring the course of Pathological Physiology 2

Students who have repeatedly enrolled (transferred) course Pathological Physiology 2 in the academic year 2023/2024 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 2022/2023 and have this course repeatedly enrolled (transferred) to the academic year 2023/2024 will be able to register for the exam in Pathological Physiology 2 already in the exam period of the winter semester 2023/2024. 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 winter semester 2023/2024

Final exam from Pathological Physiology in the winter semester 2023/2024

Requirements for applying for the Pathological Physiology exam are under the condition of completing prerequisites: 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 24 hours before the exam term and deregister until 36 hours before the exam term.

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 workdays after the exam with a written letter to the Head of the Institute via the secretary's e-mail (patfyz.sekretariat@fmed.uniba.sk).

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