Pathomorphology
Pathology is a science which combines the basis fields of medicine and clinical medicine. Pathology is
a study of causes, mechanisms, course and consequences of the disease. The pathology is classically
divided into general and organ pathology. Proper clinical diagnosis is based on clear understanding
etiology, pathogenesis, morphological and functional changes in specific diseases processes.
The pathology course includes lectures, seminars and microscopic labs. During classes and lectures cell
injury and cell death, inflammations, hemodynamic disorders, neoplasms, genetic and environmental
diseases will be discussed first. In the next semester the changes of diseases in particular systems will
be discussed. Each of the pathology issues will be illustrated by guided and self-performed microscopic
slides studies. The 3rd year pathology is completed if student passes all tests after each blocks of
laboratories and seminars. After 4th year pathology course students are obligated to pass written test
exam to obtain a credit for whole pathology course.

Pharmacology and Toxicology
Pharmacology is the study of drug action. It is the study of the interactions that occur between a living
organism and chemicals that affect normal or abnormal biochemical function. If substances have
medicinal properties, they are considered pharmaceuticals. The field encompasses drug composition
and properties, interactions, toxicology, therapy, and medical applications and antipathogenic
capabilities. The two main areas of pharmacology are Pharmacodynamics and Pharmacokinetics. The
former studies the effects of the drugs on biological systems, and the latter the effects of biological
systems on the drugs. In broad terms, Pharmacodynamics discusses the interactions of chemicals with
biological Receptors, and Pharmacokinetics discusses the absorption, distribution, metabolism, and
excretion of chemicals from the biological systems. Pharmacology is not synonymous with pharmacy,
which is the name used for a profession, though in common usage the two terms are confused at
times. Pharmacology deals with how drugs interact within biological systems to affect function. It is
the study of drugs, of the reactions of the body and drug on each other, the sources of drugs, their
nature, and their properties. In contrast, pharmacy is a biomedical science concerned with
preparation, dispensing, dosage, and the safe and effective use of medicines.

Hygiene and epidemiology
Epidemiology is considered to be the essential science of public health. Epidemiology is a quantitative
basic science built on a working knowledge of medical statistics and a method of casual reasoning
based on developing and testing hypotheses pertaining to occurrence and prevention of morbidity and
mortality. Epidemiology is also a well known tool for public health action to promote and protect the
public's health based on science casual reasoning, and dose of practical common sense. Applied
epidemiology areas are the monitoring of reports of communicable diseases in the community in all
known aspects.

Internal diseases-cardiology
The topics of the classes and seminars cover the commonest cardiologic diseases occurring in the
general population. Students are taught and explained how to take patients’ medical history and to
perform physical examination. Special care is given to teach the students how to comprehend
isolated clinical symptoms and connect them together to form a clinical plot leading to establishing
final diagnosis. Prior conversance with physiology and pathophysiology of the cardiovascular system
is necessary for understanding of the discussed issues. To successfully work with patients students
also need a basic knowledge of general diagnostics provided during the third year of the studies.

A. Department name – The Department of Cardiology and Internal Diseases
B. Head of Department – Professor Jacek Kubica MD, PhD
C. The name of the object of the study – internal diseases – cardiology
1. The cardiology classes will be provided for 3 weeks (15 working days). They consist of
practical classes and seminars.
The
practical classes (bedside teaching) are held from 08:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. in The
Department of Cardiology.
The seminars are delivered in The Main Library building from 11:15 a.m. to 02:00 p.m. in
two time-blocks split by a 15-minute break (from noon to 12:15 p.m.). Schedule and
topics of the seminars as well as room numbers where they will take place are showed
separately.
2. For the practical classes the students come with their own white coats, protective shoes
and stethoscopes.
3. The main focus of the practical classes is teaching how to take medical history and
perform physical examination of patients. All topics and skills to be covered, which
students are expected to be familiar with by the end of their training in the Department
of Cardiology and Internal Disease are outlined and summarized in “Student`s practical
skills syllabus”.
4. When coming to seminars, students are expected to be initially conversant with the
discussed topics. The recommended reference text-book is the newest edition of
“Internal Diseases” by Harrisson and al. Individual textbook – and other resourses-based
learning is strongly encouraged as the seminars do not cover the entire spectrum of
knowledge required to be mastered by the students.
5. Daily attendance at classes and seminars is mandatory. Each case of absence requires
presenting a legitimate excuse. For absence periods exceeding one day students have to
make up by doing extra hours (specific timeframe to be accepted by the academic
assistant).
6. At the end of the cardiology course, knowledge of theory and practical skills will be
tested with a written test exam consisting of 30 questions (10 short clinical case reports
and 3 questions to each of them).
7. Non-passers are allowed to take a resit examination – timeframes and details to be
discussed with The Head of department.
Internal medicine - Gastroenterology
Students become aware in such issues as definition, incidence, etiology, pathogenesis, clinical
symptoms, differential diagnosis and application of additional diagnostic tests in proper diagnosis and
planning treatment of gastrointestinal system diseases. Practicals (clinical classes) are dedicated to
improve student’s skills in medical history obtaining, physical examination, endoscopic examinations
interpretation, planning and interpretation of additional diagnostic laboratory, biochemical and
radiographic tests, planning of therapy, including pharmacological and dietetic treatment in patients
with gastrointestinal diseases. Students will be trained in performing ultrasonographic examinations,
paracentesis in cases of ascites. Students should have enough knowledge from basic sciences, like

Professor Zbigniew Bartuzi, the head of Department of Allergy, Clinical Immunology and Internal
Diseases and member of Polish Scientists Academy, EAACI and Polish Allergy Society, presents
current knowledge about food allergy, asthma, venom immunotherapy, anaphylaxis, drug
hypersensitivity and other allergic diseases . In our Department and Outpatient Clinic you can take a
part in workshop in immunologic laboratory, spirometry room, provocation tests room and
alimentary tract endoskopy room where we teach about modern diagnostic methods. In seminary
which lead experienced doctors we discus about novel methods in diagnosis, treatment and discus
progress in research of allergic diseases. Assistants demonstrate medical thinking from patients
examination to diagnosis and treatment, and show how to lead immunotherapy in patients with
hypersensitivity to venom and aeroallergens.

Internal diseases - Nephrology
Nephrology (from Greek nephros, "kidney") is a branch of internal medicine dealing with the study of
the function and diseases of the kidney.
Nephrology concerns itself with the diagnosis and treatment of primary kidney diseases including
glomerulonephritis and nephrolithiasis and secondary kidney diseases such as diabetic nephropathy
and hypertensive nephropathy. Nephrology focuses also on patients requiring renal replacement
therapy (haemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis) and renal transplant recipients. Nephrology deals with
water and electrolyte disturbances as well.
Many diseases affecting the kidney are systemic disorders not limited to the organ itself, and may
require special treatment. Examples include acquired conditions such as diabetic nephropathy,
systemic vasculitides and autoimmune diseases (eg lupus erythematosus), as well as congenital or
genetic conditions such as polycystic kidney disease.
During nephrology courses students will be training in the diagnosis and medical management of
kidney disease - acute kidney injury and chronic renal failure, glomerular and vascular disorders,
tubular/interstitial disorders, mineral metabolism, clinical pharmacology, hypertension, treatment of
acid-base and electrolyte disturbances, nephrolithiasis (kidney stones), epidemiology and nutrition.
Students get the opportunity to see some diagnostic procedures as native kidney biopsies with
ultrasound guidance and therapeutical procedures as placement of temporary dialysis catheters,
placement of tunneled hemodialysis catheters and placement of peritoneal dialysis catheters.
Students will be taught how to plan and monitor dialysis therapy.
Main problems which nephrology concerns:
•
Acute renal failure, a sudden loss of renal function
•
Chronic kidney disease, declining renal function, usually with an inexorable rise in creatinine
•
Hematuria, blood loss in the urine
•
Proteinuria, the loss of protein especially albumin in the urine
•
Kidney stones, usually only recurrent stone formers
•
Chronic or recurrent urinary tract infections
•
Hypertension that has failed to respond to multiple forms of anti-hypertensive medication or
could have a secondary cause
•
Electrolyte disorders or acid/base imbalance

Policy on the examination in children’s illnesses
for medical programme students
The examination in children’s illnesses is a comprehensive examination. i.e. it consists of the
theory and practice parts in a test format, and the theory part again (oral exam). The test exam is
uniform for the all the students in the given year of study and you can only take the oral exam if you
have passed the test exam.
Oral examiners are independent research fellows. Students select their examiners within the
limits of the number of students allowed to be examined by each examiner.
Only those who have complied with all their teaching process requirements are permitted to
take the comprehensive examination in children's illnesses.
The test exam in children’s illnesses takes place at a time and date agreed upon with the year
prefect. The examination includes 100 theory questions and 10 practice questions (with a point for
each right answer). The examination time depends on the size of the examination questions, as
follows:
<= 35,000 characters: 120 minutes;
> 35,000 <= 38,000 characters: 130 minutes;
> 38,000 <= 41,000 characters: 140 minutes;
> 41,000 <= 44,000 characters: 150 minutes;
> 44,000 <= 47,000 characters: 160 minutes;
> 47,000 <= 50,000 characters: 180 minutes;
Students should bring their record books or USOS data to exams with entries confirming that
they have obtained course credits. Where children’s illness classes end in the autumn semester for
all the groups, it is possible to take the exam in the winter examination period provided that the
group prefects and the year prefect request that.
The examination test should be taken without consulting others. Any contact with others or
use of forbidden materials may lead to terminating the test exam and the student's failure to obtain
a credit for the exam.
Any printing errors noticed in a test by an examinee may be reported thereby in writing; they
will be verified during the exam. Any medical errors noticed in test questions by an examinee may be
reported thereby in writing during the exam; they will be verified after the exam, before the
announcement of its results.
Test exam grades are as follows:
< 60 %
(0-65 points)
– unsatisfactory (2)
>=60% i <68 % (66-74 points) – satisfactory (3)
>=68% i <75% (75-82 points)
>=75% i <82% (83-90 points)
>=82% i <90% (91-98 points)
>=90%
(99-110 points)
– satisfactory plus (3.5)
– good (4)
– good plus (4.5)
– very good (5)
The final grade for the comprehensive examination in children’s illnesses is the average of
the grades for both of its parts, provided that the grade for each part is satisfactory.
Students who fail the exam on the first scheduled date take the exam on the second
scheduled date during the re-sit examination period, on the same terms and conditions as on the
first scheduled date. The examination date will be agreed upon with the year prefect. If the number
of people who take the re-sit examination is small, it may be taken orally.
Failure to sit an exam on the scheduled date without a valid explanation is tantamount to
getting an Unsatisfactory grade entered in the student's record book and the examination sheet. The
reasons for such absence should be provided to the secretariat of the clinic which organises the
examination within three days of the examination date.
When the summer session takes place in an odd year, the examination is organised by the
Paediatrics, Allergology and Gastroenterology Department and Clinic, and when it takes place in an
even year, the examination is organised by the Paediatrics, Haematology and Oncology Department.
Exam results are entered by oral examiners.
The selection and preparation of questions in each year is the responsibility of Department
Heads and teaching supervisors.
Surgery
A full – time clinical activity. Students actively participate in perioperative management and operations
of patients requiring surgery for cancer, endocrine disease and other selected general surgical
problems. Cases include goiter, inguinal and incisional hernia, obesity, gastrointestinal cancer,
gallbladder disease. Students also work parallel to attending staff providing surgical consult to ER staff,
under proper supervision; they also attend workshops on basic surgical skills. Attending rounds and
teaching conferences daily.

Neurology
Neurology is the branch of medicine, the science of the causes, mechanism, the diagnosis and the
treatment of the nervous system diseases. Neurology is based on neuroanatomy, neurophysiology,
neurochemistry, neuropathology and genetics. The curriculum of the medical studies in neurology
provides the opportunity to gain both theoretical and practical skills: the neurological examination,
diagnosis and the treatment of the most common diseases of the nervous system and life-threatening
cases.
The realisation of the curriculum of neurology is one of the conditions essential to obtain the medical
doctor certificate and is the basis of opening a specialisation in neurology.

Family medicine
Family medicine is an academic and scientific discipline,with its own educational content, research,
evidence base and clinical activity, and a clinical specialty orientated to primary care.
Family physician is normally the point of first medical contact within the health care system, providing
open and unlimited access to its users, dealing with all health problems regardless of the age, sex, or
any other characteristic of the person concerned. He coordinates care, working with other
professionals in the health care system, develops a person-centred approach, orientated to the
individual, his/her family, and their community. A unique consultation process establishes a
relationship over time, through effective communication between doctor and patient. Family physician
manages simultaneously both acute and chronic health problems of individual patients, provides
longitudinal continuity of care determined by the needs of the patient. He manages illness which
presents in an undifferentiated way at an early stage, promotes health and well being both by
appropriate and effective intervention. Primary care deals with health problems in their physical,
psychological, social, cultural and existential dimensions.
