Course information

Medical Biology – Cell Biology (FOKOGEN004_1A) for Students of Dentistry
2015/16 Academic year - 1st semester

General information

         

Medical Biology – Cell Biology is a one semester subject for students of Dentistry. Claims for exemptions are only considered if handed to Dr. Valéria László (tutor) not later than the 21st of September.

Medical Biology – Cell Biology has theoretical (lecture) and laboratory (practice) parts. Students must attend 75% of lectures, may have not more than four absences. Lecture attandance is regularly checked.

Practices are obligatory. More than three absences of ANY REASON during a semester invalidate the semester. There are no extra practices. A notebook for notes and drawings, and coloured pencils are needed in practices.

Remember the exact time of lectures and practices, don't be late for them. Being late from practice is considered as an absence.

The slides, microscopes and other belongings in the Labs (Practice Rooms) should be handled with care. Any disappearance or harm in them should be paid by the groups working in the same room.

In the first semester you have one written midterm exam: on the 8th week lecture. Both practical and theoretical knowledge is tested on midterm. No opportunity for extra date or for retake and for correction.

In the examination period you have to taka a final exam. You are allowed to take the exam if you have got the signature of the subject. Requirement of signature: not more than 3 absences from the practices that is verified by the practice teacher, and attandance of 75% of the lectures.

Final exam (Medical Biology – Cell Biology) consists of oral test (preparations, electron micrographs, methods applied in cell biology) and written test (multiple choice, essays, drawings, etc. covering theoretical part of the subject). You have to pass both oral and written part of the exam. If you do not fail, the exam grade will be calculated as average of midterm grade (30%), oral test grade (20%) and written test grade (50%). In retake exams the successful oral part needs not to be repeated.

Online registration for the exam is in the second part of November. Students have three chances to take the exam. Those who do not come twice for registered date, or have two failed exams, have to obtain a "retake ticket" at the English Secretariate. Failed exam can be repeated after 3 days with new registration. In the examination period there are voluntary consultations.

On the homepage of the Department (http://gsi.semmelweis.hu/more information can be found: eg. slides of lectures, practices, summary of topics not found in the book, description of cytological methods, detailed topic list for midterms and exam.
