Description of exams and course work
The written module examination tests whether the competences described above have been achieved by requesting the answer to questions in free text which demands the combination of anatomical, pathological, physiological and pathophysiological knowledge to describe the radiation-induced transformations in the anatomy of the human, as well as the physiological functions of the human body. Duration: 90 min.
If failed, the student may repeat the examination at the end of the semester.
In agreement with §12 (8) APSO an oral examination can be held, in this case the guiding value for the duration of the examination is 25 minutes.
