Requirements to the exam
Last update: Hana Hrubá (25.05.2018)

How to get the credit in practicals in Neurology? Practicals in the Neurology consist of 6-7 blocks, each 90 minutes long, during winter semester.

For getting the credit is necessary to be present during all the practicals and to demonstrate the knowledge in the patient examination and in the creation of the diagnostic and therapeutic plan.

Written part of the exam in Neurology is the test, that is containing 35 questions in general and special neurology, minimal number of correctly answered questions is 24.

Oral part is containing 2 questions, 1 (out of 10) is from general neurology, 1 (out of 15) is from special neurology, both questions have to be answered correctly.

For passing the exam in neurology is necessary to be successful in both the written and oral part.
