The required extent of knowledge for the final exam is determined by the textbook, the content of lectures and seminars and the list of the exam questions. The pathophysiology lectures and seminars do not cover all the topics required for the exam entirely. We expect students are able to apply knowledge gained while studying other subjects. Also we expect students to acquire part of the knowledge by studying individually.
All exam terms are announced during the 4th week of the winter semester. The exam dates is summer semester exam period will be added if required later on.
The enrollment for the exam pre-terms and exam period terms starts during the 5th week of the winter semester (the exact date and time is indicated in SIS).
Last term to take the exam in September is indicated at SIS (NO EXAM TERMS ARE ALLOWED FOLLOWING THIS DATE)
