The goal of physics course for student of dental medicine is to learn how to use basic physical principles and laws to describe biological processes and structure of biological systems at the molecular level. In studying metabolic processes and the interaction of the body with the environment simple physical models are used. Those models are based on knowledge of energy and matter transfer inside biological systems and action of external energy sources on biological systems. The main teaching task is to familiarize students with the knowledge of selected parts of physics connected with biological systems and, with examples in seminar classes, bring them closer to ways of thinking necessary to apply that knowledge in dentistry. In addition, students should be able to explain the physical basis of diagnostic and therapeutic methods in dentistry practice necessary for understanding them. Laboratory exercise have task to qualify students to do measurements, explain and present results of experiments. They also have a goal to qualify students for handling simple measuring devices and improve their understanding of basic physical laws. All lectures, seminars and labs are obligatory. A student can be absent from class up to 20 % of the overall course load but have to make up for seminars and lab work. Missed seminars have to be submitted in the form of essay to the course coordinator before the exam. Missed labs have to be made up during the make-up lab hours provided by the Department. During the make-up lab, only one missed exercise can be completed. The completion and proper documentation of each lab exercise and seminar and approval thereof by the course instructor are conditions for the course completion and obtaining the signature in the Index. A student has to get the signature prior taking the exam.
