The aim is mainly to show the context of anatomical parts and their functions. Since the field of biomedical engineering is interdisciplinary, it will be within the scope of the techniques used to show the direct correlation of the acquired knowledge of anatomy (mainly topographic) and physiology with the outputs of different types of technology. Subject emphasizes that the student acquainted with the basics of anatomy and elementary principles of physiological processes of the human body. This is an overview of the basic data necessary for further study and required for passing the state exam. The essence of the subject is to familiarize students with the functional morphology of organs and their clinical significance.
