Department of Human Biology and Genetics

Biology is the core biomedical science. It constitutes an indispensable part of medical education and creates a fundamental framework for the
development of a broad knowledge of basic clinical science and professional skills in medical students.

1. The general aim of Biology in medical education is to provide students with necessary background knowledge for the study of theoretical,
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.
