Prevention of Healt Risks
The study of medicine and other health-related fields brings potential risks to health in the course of practical training. Namely there are risks due to infections, ionizing radiation, exposure to toxic substances (e.g. cytostatic drugs) and injuries. Pregnant students must notify their teachers of their condition. A pregnant student must not be exposed to any increased risk of infection anywhere (foremost in the Departments of Pathology, Microbiology, Forensic Medicine, and Infectious Diseases). She must also avoid a risk of ionizing radiation (X-ray and isotope workplaces). Further, she needs to avoid any manipulation with cytostatic preparations (oncology and numerous other clinical settings). Abiding by work safety rules is COMPULSORY for all students. The faculty policy in this field aims for a thorough prevention and total minimization of health risk in the course of study. Any particular problems related to an individual study plan are dealt with at respective workplaces, a final decision is made by the Vice-Dean for Study Affairs.
