Object Medical psychology and communication is included into the programme of third year.In the winter semester there are two hours of lectures in two weeeks  and two hours of practice training ( seminars)during the same priod (30 hours of lectures and 30 hours of training).Each study group has separate time for practice training.

One of the criterions for the credit is the written work ( literary review or essay). The topic is the matter of students choice.In the summer semester are two hours of lectures in two weeks and two hours of practice training in each week.One of the criterions for the credit is again the written work ( review or essay). The oral examination ends the programme.

Lectures and practice training (seminars) are elaborating topics according syllabus. Practice  training is based on specific problems from the clinical medicine e.g. informing, psychological quidance, counselling, communication with handicapped etc. During  practice training we use role playing, video feedback and small goups dynamics. Students are sharing their  experiences from clinical training and from literature dealing with psychology topics.

 The goal of this teaching programme is support of humanisation of medicine, sensibilisation of students to psychological aspects of clinical medicine and training of communication in specific situations of medical practice.
