Course of Anatomy (B83030) and Anatomic Dissections (B81128) for Students of Dentistry in Academic Year 2018 – 2019 Continuation of the first year Anatomy course is the third year Clinical Orofacial Anatomy (B81158)
Course Head: Prof. Karel Smetana, MD, DSc.
Head of English-taught courses: Prof. David Sedmera, MD., DSc.
Curricular timing and duration: The course is taught mainly during the first and second semester containing following parts: lectures (120 hrs), practices (60hrs) and seminars (30hrs), and one dissection block (40 hrs). Advanced course of clinically oriented Clinical Orofacial Anatomy is taught in the the 3rd year (30hrs). Total: 220 hrs.
Lectures: In winter and summer semester twice a week according to syllabus of Dentistry programme together with students of General Medicine. Attendance is recommended.
Practices and seminars: Once a week separately from students of General Medicine according to syllabus of Dentistry program with focus on topics relevant to Dentistry (head and neck anatomy mainly). The knowledge of students is evaluated by means of written tests and oral examinations. Clinically relevant seminars are given by students themselves. Attendance is obligatory; each semester is closed by the credit.
Anatomic Dissection: Total of 40 hrs in summer semester according to the schedule. Subjects of dissection are: head, neck, thorax, abdomen and pelvis. Extremities are not dissected. Attendance is obligatory; dissection is closed by the credit (oral exam based on identification of dissected structures).
Content: Gross anatomy of organs and organ systems, regional anatomy with respect to functional and clinical applications. Main focus is put on anatomy of the head and neck.
First semester: Anatomical terminology, the skull, locomotor apparatus with the main focus on the skull and muscles of the head and neck, cranial nerves; circulatory and lymphatic system; digestive system (with oral cavity and teeth as the most important parts), respiratory system.
Second semester: Urogenital system, heart, endocrine system, central and peripheral nervous system, sensory organs, skin.
Continuation of the first year Anatomy course is the third year Clinical Orofacial Anatomy intended for Dentistry students only.
The list of Recommended Textbooks follows at the end of this text.
Knowledge and skills to be acquired: Theoretical and practical knowledge of the gross anatomy and the nomenclature used to describe the human body with focus on the head and neck anatomy.
Eligible subject New Trends in Experimental and Clinical Anatomy is recommended for students with deeper interest in Anatomy and molecular medicine.
Satisfactory result of written test is prerequisite for the admission to other parts of the exam. The exam can be terminated at any part without even commencing the oral part and evaluates the student “failed”. This provision will not apply in case of a second re-examination, when the exam continues even in case of unsatisfactory result of the written test.
Successfully written test and practical part of the final exam is not necessary to retake in case of re-examination, they are valid during the whole exam period, however at longest for 4 months.
If a student fails to appear at the marked credit, examination or its part on the date that he/she registered for, the student gets a "D" mark and loses therefore one exam term. The potential apology must be delivered to the secretary of the institute. Then the examinator will consider, in particular, the nature of circumstances that the student gave as reasons for his/her absence.
Students with Individual Study Plan are recommended to discuss the extent and schedule of the subject with the Head of the Institute at the beginning of particular semester.
We would like to ask students who will repeat Anatomy 2 in academic year 2017/2018 to go to the secretariat of the Institute of Anatomy in the last week of the winter exam period for registration of the new group for this subject. During registration the institute will try to accommodate student’s wishes, but students have to take into account that the number of students in each group also must remain well-balanced.
