The subject

The Histology for students of dentistry 2. subject will give the necessary background for understanding physiological and pathophysiological processes. During the semester you will get acquainted with the light and electronmicroscopical structure of different organs and organ systems. This is the second part of the two-semester subject.

In the histology practices, the students must work in the histology workbook and make a sketch of every slide studied during the semester. The goal of the drawings in not the brush-up of your artistic skills, or replacing the micro-photos, but it is an excellent tool to motivate you to study every details of the slide. A good schematic drawing shows that you examined and understood the important features of the actual tissue. You will be allowed to sit for the exam only if your histology lab teacher accepted your Histology Workbook.

The exam

The exam is an oral-practical exam at the end of the semester.

  • The students enroll for the oral practical semester exam individually, according to the regulations of the regulation of the Medical School (ETR). In general, three or four students are present in the place of the exam. One of them is performing, the others are preparing. The exam consists of two parts, including practical and theoretical questions. Each part of the exam is scored ("part-scores"). The students take an envelope with two slides. You have cca. 30 minutes to get prepared with the topics. The (active part of the) exam lasts for about 20-40 minutes. .

    Parts of the exam:

    We call your attention that the semester will be accepted only (you will be allowed to sit for the exam) if you did not exceed the absence limit (see information of absences), and your histology lab teacher accepted your Histology Workbook.
