During the course, students are introduced to individual terms based on Latin as well as Greek expressions. Students are continuously acquainted with the dates of entire diagnoses and therapeutic procedures. Teaching takes place mainly in the form of self-study.


A database of technical terms was created, which are contained in educational materials, which can be found on the website of the course (dictionary and 13 power point presentations).

The student will be awarded a credit in case of successful completion of the test, which will be compiled from the above database and which therefore contains randomly selected professional terms.


Completion of the course - written test. (3 parts - a total of 70 points):

- part one: vocabulary. (translation of words from Latin. Words related to the names of individual organs and parts of the human body)

- part two: diagnoses (translation of individual diagnoses from Latin)

- Part Three: Diagnostic and therapeutic procedures (translation from Latin)

More information about the test can be found in power point presentation No. 1.

In the case of a student with specific learning disabilities, the written test can be modified according to his needs.
