The course's goal is to prepare students for research design as well as data organization and processing in medicine and health care. Throughout the course, students will learn about data systematization and graphical representation. The fundamentals of descriptive and inferential statistics are covered in this course. Students learn how to perform parametric and non-parametric tests, interpret statistical test results, and present statistical analysis results by using the statistics program. The knowledge and skills gained in the course are required for critical reading of scientific and professional literature, as well as the preparation of professional and scientific materials and decision-making in biomedical and healthcare settings.

The course Physiology and Pathophysiology II is a compulsory course in the second year of the Integrated Undergraduate and Graduate University Study of Dental Medicine. Classes are organized in shifts and are performed in the winter semester. Classes are held in the form of lectures (30 hours), seminars (30 hours) and practicals (30 hours), which amounts to a total of 90 hours (7.5 ECTS).

The main goal of this course is to enable students to apply the previously acquired knowledge from all subjects of the first year of study, especially the course Physiology and Pathophysiology I, to get acquainted with the normal function of the cardiovascular, renal and respiratory systems, as well as pathogenetic mechanisms that lead to the onset of disease. The application of increasingly invasive methods of treatment of dental and oral diseases imposes the need for a comprehensive approach to the dental patient, and therefore learning about the functions of these organ systems will provide a better understanding of pathological conditions of the oral cavity encountered by dentists in clinical practice.
