social and clinical disciplines.
2. The academic curriculum aims to study Human being as a biosocial phenomenon, focusing on biological peculiarities which are
important for practical Medicine.
3. Students are guided to acquire not only fundamental knowledge necessary for future scientific work
(eg: introduction to stem cells, human genetics) but also skills in identifying clinical problems.
