Internal regulations of the Department Of Descriptive and Clinical Anatomy

  1. In order to complete a semester, a year and to pass Final Anatomy Examination student should participate actively in lectures, seminars and practical classes. Participation in seminars and practical classes is obligatory.
    CAUTION: During the course of anatomy, the student is supposed to have the knowledge acquired from all previous practical classes and lectures.
  2. The course of anatomy is divided into eight following modules:
    (a) osteology and arthrology, (b) central nervous system, (c) head and neck, (d) thorax, (e) abdomen, (f) retroperitoneal space and pelvis, (g) upper limb and back, (h) lower limb.
  3. Student is obliged to obtain a credit for each of practical classes (except for some of them mentioned in the class schedule) – 1 point for theoretical part based on multiple choice questions (MCQ – 6 questions and 4/6 points to pass) and 1 point for practical part based on the practical (pin) test (4 pins, 5/8 points to pass).
  4. Moreover, students have to participate in two intermediate credits (60 MCQ points and 60 practical test points).
  5. In the end of the academic year, points obtained during practical classes and both intermediate credits are summarized. In order to be admitted to the final examination in anatomy, a student has to obtain 65% of total number of points both in theoretical and practical parts. In academic year 2016/2017 a student has to collect 108 points to be admitted to the final examination (for practical and theoretical component separately).
  6. Those who failed to get the required number of points have a chance to be allowed to take the final examination on the basis of the admission test organized in the end of May. It consists of 100 MCQ questions and 100 practical test points. In order to pass, the student has to obtain 65 points on each of the two components. No other attempts are to be organized by the Department of Descriptive and Clinical Anatomy.
  7. Absence exceeding four practical classes per semester excludes completion of the semester. The student is therefore not allowed to take the final examination in anatomy.
  8. The final examination in anatomy is scheduled in summer examination period and consists of two parts: practical (pin) test and theoretical (Multiple Choice Questions test). The level to pass the practical examination is 36/40 basic points (the basic points list is available on the website of the Department of Descriptive and Clinical Anatomy) and 76/120 total score. The level to pass MCQ is 76/120. Examination grades according to points: 152-169 – satisfactory, 170-187 – better than satisfactory, 188-205 – good, 206-223 – better than good, 224-240 – very good.
  9. Retake of the Final Anatomy Examination is administered in September. Only the failed components are to be retaken.
  10. Practical anatomy involves students in the examination and dissection of human subjects. This privileged opportunity relies on the generosity of local people who recognize the value to medicine that the practical study of human anatomy can provide and generously make their bodies available for that purpose to medical and science students.
    It is important that, at all times, you respect that generosity and behave accordingly. The students should wear long trousers or skirts.
