Exam topics for students of General Medicine, 20/21

The list of exam topics for students of General Medicine valid for the academic year 20/21 is available HERE, or as an attachment to this post.

The current list represents an updated version of exam topics, and covers the entire spectrum of pathology in the same way that it is taught to you. We have designed the topics to reflect a modern approach to pathology, classifications and the subjects as a whole with the aim to make the preparation for your exam clearer and easier.

Updated conditions for obtaining the credit for winter semester 20/21

The credit will be awarded to students after fulfilling the following conditions:

1. During the course of the semester, each student must take all of the General pathology tests available on Moodle. More information about the tests is available here. In order to obtain the credit it is necessary only to take the test, not its result – therefore it is not necessary to pass a certain point threshold or meet any time deadlines. The students can take these tests in any order they wish to and at any time, provided that they have taken all of the tests by the end of winter semester.

2. Meeting the attendance requirements - During the time when in presence teaching of the practical lessons is allowed, attendance of these classes continues to be mandatory. The students are allowed to have a total of 3 excused absences for the entire semester. However, given the current epidemiological situation (and the very real possibility that some students will need to undergo mandatory quarantine) the students are also allowed additional absences outside of the alotted three absences. These cases should always be considered individually and actively discussed with the group teacher, who will devise alternative mechasnisms for the student to still be able to obtain their winter semester credit.

Online gallery of macroscopic pathology photos

We are continuously working on improving our teaching methods and available study aids for our students, and that is why at the moment we are  working on creating a dedicated online gallery of macroscopic pathology photos, all sourced from our own archives of autopsy and biopsy cases.

The gallery will serve as an extra resource of reliable, teacher-verified information to provide you with as high-yield study materials as possible.The gallery should be finished and published during March 2020 and the students will be informed about its launch during their regular classes as soon as it is ready. The link to the gallery will be provided here, on our department website.

Until our gallery is ready, we invite you to make use of some of the freely available online galleries of other institutions, such as the Pathology Education Instructional Resource Library (PEIR).
