Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course students will be able to know the physiology / function of all human body systems and records (scans / Us, Ct, MRI, endoscopy etc.) operating (biomarkers), electrophysiological (EEG, ECG, etc.) arising from them.
General Competences
  • Apply knowledge in practice
  • Make decisions
  • Work autonomously
  • Work in teams
