    The goalThe study of disorders that are common to many diseases, not just a single nosological entity, in order to understand the complexity of the pathophysiological processes in the animal organism
    The outcomeStudents are expected to know the disorders of organ systems, understand the reaction of the organism to homeostasis disorders and mechanisms of disease, known to be linked with the symptoms and know how to connect biochemical, haematological and endocrinological changes in the blood and body fluids with disorders of individual organ systems
