Please register only for the dates specified only for your study programme and year.

Pathological Physiology in summer semester 2023/2024


Lectures will take place in person. In the lectures, the teacher explains the basic principles, methods, theories and other related issues manifested in the practical implementation of the subject matter in a coherent and professional manner.

The student demonstrates his/her knowledge from lectures in other training activities and in the control of studies (examinations). The student's attendance is highly recommended.


The seminars will take place in person or combination (self-study of recordings and materials provided by the teacher in advance via MS Teams, followed by in-person meetings). Teachers will always inform students about the method of teaching seminars in a timely manner.

Students attend the seminars prepared for the topic indicated in the Pathological Physiology schedule. During the seminar, students practice and consolidate the theoretical knowledge they should have acquired in lectures and self-study.

During the meeting, students will have time for their questions. Students will be rewarded with additional points for their activity and knowledge in seminars, which will be counted in the final assessment.

Final exam from Pathological Physiology

Requirements for registering for the Pathological Physiology exam are under the condition of completing the prerequisite (verification through AIS2). If the student does not meet this criterion, they will not be admitted to the Pathological Physiology exam.

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

The exam is oral and held in person. On exam day, students come to the Institute of Pathological Physiology at 8:00, unless stated otherwise.

On the examination, the student will present their ISIC and draws 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 sufficiently. The student has at least 20 minutes of written preparation before answering. The examiner will ask the student to prepare the question from the cardiovascular system in writing that will be kept at the Institute.

Cheating or attempting to cheat during an exam is the reason for exam interruption and Fx grade.

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 a student has registered for an examination date, has not opted out and has failed to attend, he/she is obliged to apologise via the university email to the Head of the department (patfyz.sekretariat@fmed.uniba.sk) no later than three working days after the examination date. If the student fails to do so or the Head of the department does not accept the student's apology, the student will be assessed with the marking grade FX for that examination date.

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