    The goalAcquainting students with basic concepts of development and microscopic structure of different organs of domestic animals; acquainting students with types of placentas in domestic animals.
    The outcomeTo teach students to understand the normal structure of organs of domestic animals as well as basic principles of their development; to be able to use microscope in order to identify different organs and analyse their structure; to understand principles of placentation and to know basic morphofunctional characteristics of placenta of domestic mammals.
    Contents of lecturesBasic characteristics of development and microscopic structure of organs of different systems (circulatory system - 3; lymphatic system - 3; respiratory system - 3; integumentary system - 4; senses - 4; digestive system - 12; endocrine system - 3; urinary system - 3; reproductive system of males - 3 and females - 4); fetal membranes and placenta - 3.
    Contents of exercisesPresentation, microscopic analysis and sketching of histological structure of selected organs of different systems; placenta and presentation of development of some organs.
