The major objective of the course in summer semester is to provide students of dentistry with knowledge that enables them to understand the causes of pathological states and the molecular, cellular, organ and systemic mechanisms of development of medical syndromes, symptoms, and major diseases. The course starts with studying the typical pathological processes: cell damage, inflammation, fever, disorders of water, ion and acid-base balance. Further on during the course students study pathophysiology of respiratory, cardiovascular system, blood and coagulation. Special attention is provided to manifestations of the systemic diseases in oral cavity, and role of the disorders of oral cavity in aetiology and pathogenesis of the systemic diseases.
During the course in winter semester dentistry students of acquire knowledge about molecular, cellular, organ and systemic mechanisms of pathogenesis of disorders of nutrition, gastrointestinal tract, kidneys, endocrine and nervous system. Pathophysiology of disorders of connective tissues and bones is also discussed. Students study systemic manifestations of abovementioned disorders and emphasis is made on pathogenesis of orofacial changes. Students learn to analyze typical clinical case studies related to dentistry praxis with reference to common principles of aetiology and pathogenesis of diseases.
