Pedagogical activity at Medical Faculty in Pilsen, Charles University

Seminární místnost ÚKBH ÚKBH guarantees on Medical Faculty in Pilsen, Charles University teaching of compulsory subject Clinicall biochemistry and participates in the teaching of the compulsory subject Introduction to Clinical Medicine. We are significantly involved in the organization, improvement and implementation of the optional course "Studentská pedagogická a publicitní činnost" (Student Teaching and Publicity Activities).
Teaching is performed by a team of experienced teachers.

Subject Clinical biochemistry

compulsory, 5th year of general medicine

6 days (30 hrs) of seminars, ended with credit and compulsory exam that is realised in the form of complex electronic quiz. Teachnig is in available english language too.

Main goals (outcomes) of education

Correctly indicate and interprete laboratory results.
A journey to this goal leads from basic analytical and diagnostic properties of laboratory method, understanding of reference range concept and interdisciplinary interpretation of pathophysiologic correlates in clinical biochemistry laboratory results. Building on knowledge of metabolic pahtways in healthy human organism, absolvent should understand usage of biomarkers change for diagnosis and prognosis of prevalent and severe diseases, understand basic toxicology and laboratory monitoring of different organ functions and therapeutic drug monitoring.

Studentská pedagogická a publicitní činnost (Student Teaching and Publicity Activities)

optional, 5th and 6th year, general medicine; English students can participate

6 credits

Program and content are summarized in student information system.

ÚKBH significantly contributes to origin and working of following projects:

Pedagogical activities at the SZŠ and VOZŠ

Medical doctors, bioanalysts and laboratory technicians of the Institute of Clinical Hematology provide teaching of clinical haematology in theory and practical exercises at the Střední zdravotnická škola (SZŠ) as well as at the Vyšší odborné zdravotnické škole and at the University of West Bohemia.

Hematology is a difficult field of medicine, extensive, demanding on memory, because children and adults, men and women have different values of the same parameter. It is also demanding on logical thinking because one must first understand the processes that lead to the formation of blood cells in the bone marrow, their function in the peripheral blood and their disappearance in the spleen. The control of knowledge is based on oral examinations and a number of marks come from written tests. Personally, I find the study of haematology fun, exciting, joyful, imaginable, because in the days of my youth, study meant cramming and memorising, searching and collating data. Current technologies allow us to penetrate through animation the secrets of a microworld whose processes and laws can only be understood by selected individuals who have been accepted for study.
