DEAR STUDENTS!

The only exception is class no. 1
seminar: Microscope, histological techniqe.
class: Various cell types.

These classes will be held according to the schedule in classrooms in w Anatomicum. Lists of students in individual histology groups will be placed in the „Schedules” tab, according to your division and class. 

Online classes (from class no. 2) will be held online on Microsoft Teams, according to the following scenario: 

1. Seminar (introduction) – talk for all groups by one professor (time around 45-60 min) 
2. Class (examination of histological slides) – for all groups, by one professor (time around 45-60 min) 
3. Class (meeting with professor and test) – in individual groups, with your own professor (time around 30 min) 

Each class will be credited for based on your presence at the class (logging), your drawings of histological slides specific for the current topic, and passing of the test. The issue of absence and failing of the test is decided upon in the Regulations of the Department. 

Students log into individual parts of classes using an access code and or link. Codes and links will be made available with time in individual tabs, for your division, class and topic.
