    The goalTo give the students theoretical fundamentals for adoption of veterinary medicine knowledge and commencement of clinical practice through acquiring the basic theoretical and practical information on physical processes in living systems and physical bases of their functioning, as well as the influence of physical factors on the environment.
    The outcomeThe students will understand the physical processes in living systems and physical bases of their functioning, as well as the mechanisms and effects that physical factors have on living systems; will be able to carry out a measurement procedure, process the experimental data and present them; will acquire basic understanding of modern instrumental methods used in veterinary medicine.
