Methodological Fundamentals of Research of Cardiovascular Diseases

Course for doctoral student - Cardiovascular sciences

Main coordinator: P. Widimský

The course is accessible and open for all doctoral students of the CU free of charge. To complete the course, it is necessary to attend at least 70% of all lessons.

Every lesson starts at 15:30 with the first approximately 20 minutes dedicated to a presentation followed by an informal and interactive discussion (eventually student presentations or sharing experiences etc. are also possible). If any student should be interested in showing his or her own presentation (slides with questions included) during a seminar, he or she should consult the lecturer in advance.

The seminars will take place either in their full-time form (the location of each meeting listed below in the programme) or remotely (according to the current epidemiological situation). The form of the seminars will always be confirmed by the Dean´s Office of the 3. FM (Mrs. Jizbová) at least one week beforehand. All lectures organized remotely due to an adverse epidemiological situation can be accessed through this link:

Course: Applied Pharmacokinetics (B90274)

Field Board 10: Pharmacology and Toxicology

A course is intended primarily for Charles University doctoral students in the study program Pharmacology and Toxicology and for other students interested in clinical pharmacokinetics. It is valid as one of the obligatory courses that must be passed during Doctoral Study Program. The confirmation of completion of the course is validated by credit in the University Study Report. The course lasts 3 days and comprises from seminars on the basic pharmacokinetic theory which is then discussed on practical demonstrations (case reports, guidelines, therapeutic drug monitoring, and population pharmacokinetics) and interactive practicing of therapeutic drug monitoring on validated software (MW/Pharm). Part of the course is final test of acquired knowledge.

The Essentials of Medical Sciences for students of non-medical disciplines

In the school year of 2020/2021 we are opening once more the course of the Essentials of Medical Sciences for students from non-medical branches of study.

The course takes place every Monday of the summer semester and it aims to acquaint students with the basics of anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology and pathology. After each lecture, time is set aside for consultations and discussions with the lecturer.

The course starts with the beginning of the summer semester. Please, send your applications to this email: . The maximum number of students is 15.

To successfully complete the course, it is necessary to attend at least 80% of lectures, pass a test and submit a short work (literary review on the topic of your dissertation) using the knowledge gained in the course.
