Characteristics of the study programme

The goal of the studies in Experimental Surgery is training of the students for independent scientific as well as practical work in the field. The study will provide the doctorands with absolute knowledge of theoretic fields, cell biology, pharmacology, immunology, medical chemistry and biochemistry, physiology and pathology, basic laboratory technology as well as the latest laboratory technology in the field, and above all professional knowledge in the areas of children surgery, obstetrics and gynaecology, surgery, neurosurgery, ophthalmology, orthopaedics, otorhinolaryngology, plastic surgery, stomatology and urology. The graduates will be capable to set the hypothesis for scientific work, choose relevant methods for verification of the hypothesis, perform the practical tasks needed, scientifically evaluate and subsequently publish the results in scientific journals with an impact factor, give talks and presentations at professional conferences, symposiums and congresses. The graduates will have good prospects for careers in the surgical specialty, for achieving further scientific and educational grades, and participate in independent development of the field.
