In Haematology and Oncology course students will learn basics of epidemioplogy, pathogenesis, diagnostics, staging and therapy of solid tumours and haemoblastosis. Theoretical introduction will be followed by practical lectures examining patients with particular tumorous diseases. In the oncological and haemato-oncological part of the course students will be taught basis of therapy of tumorous diseases according to the evidence based medicine, innovation in biological therapy and basics of modern supportive and paliative care. In the non-malignant haematology students will learn basis of symptomatology, racional laboratory examination, diferential diagnostics and therapy of non-malignant diseases of hematopoietic system. Preventive care and early diagnosis principals of both malignant and non- malignant haematologic diseases will be also mentioned.
