Pathophysiology is a bridge between theoretical medical subjects and clinical studies. Pathophysiology studies changes in the human body as influenced by various diseases. It collects data regarding the causes of various diseases and data regarding the functional changes occurring in various organs systems, organs, tissues and cells. The course of the pathological physiology consists from lectures and seminars. Students are motivated to actively participate in the teaching during seminars and some home work with the aim to prepare them for continuous studies of pathophysiology during their clinical studies and as a part of the continuous medical education. The two semester course deals with pathophysiology of different organ systems of the body, roughly corresponding to clinical specialization, particularly in the internal medicine. General mechanism causing and underlying diseases are included into the teaching curriculum.
