Neurology classes scheduled in January 11-29 , will be held online on the Teams platform. In the first week of classes, on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, classes will be held from 11.00 to 13.00. and will be devoted to teaching neurological examination and neurological syndromes. Classes on Monday begin with a preliminary test.

From Thursday, students are required to listen to seminars according to the attached schedule. From 11.00 to 12.00, on the Teams platform there will be OBLIGATORY short classes devoted to clarifying doubts related to the topic of seminars and discussing clinical cases.

Recordings from the seminars will be available on the e-learning platform ONLY the day before and on the day of the planned seminar. Seminar outlines are available on the platform all the time.

NEUROLOGY 2020/2021

 The aim of the neurology course is preparing medical students to work as general practitioner (family doctor) and giving them basic neurological knowledge and information about advances in neurology.

Duration of the course: 3 weeks. Number of teaching hours = 100 hours of seminars and practical classes                         


 SEMINARS- seminars are conducted on-line on the e-learning platform. Additional materials for self-study are also available on the e-learning platform.


  • Anatomy and physiology of the nervous system - repetition.
  • Ischemic stroke
  • Hemorrhagic strokes
  • Motor neuron disease  and other diseases of the spinal cord
  • Muscle diseases
  • Disorders of the neuromuscular junction
  • Peripheral neuropathies
  • Demyelinating diseases
  • Neoplastic tumors of the nervous system
  •  Autonomic system disorders in neurology
  •  Vertigo
  • Traumatic lesions of the central nervous system
  • Neurocritical care and brain death
  • Headache
  • Back pain
  • Epilepsy
  • Dementia
  • Emergency in neurology
  • Neurological signs and symptoms in systemic diseases



Practical training includes teaching physical neurological examination, interpretation of diagnostic tests and algorithms of diagnostic procedures, as well as demonstration of patients with selected neurological diseases and basic additional tests  used in neurological diagnostics: Doppler ultrasound examination and EMG / EEG.

The first week of  classes is devoted to teaching neurological examination and demonstrations of clinical cases. There is a preliminary test on the first day of classes. In the following weeks, students are divided into subgroups and examine patients under the supervision of designated assistants. In the last week of classes, a practical test of neurological skills takes place.

Students are required to comply with the current epidemic recommendations (wearing surgical masks, white coats and shoes for a change).



The preliminary test takes place on the first day of the course. The test consists of 5 questions and covers the basic knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the nervous system. The test questions are in the file at the bottom of this page.  In the event of a negative result of the test, the student must take it again at the beginning of the second week of classes.


On the last day of the 3-week course students take the final colloquium consisting of 50 open and multiple choice questions. At least 30 correct answers are required to pass the test. The colloquium can be re-passed only twice. If the results of the repetitive tests are negative, the student must repeat  the entire course of neurology.


During a block of classes, a student may have no more than 1 excused absence. In the case of 2 excused absences, the student makes up for the missed days of classes with another group and may take the final test only after making up for the absences. More than 2 absences result in the failure to pass a block of classes.

Absence from classes due to infection or contact with SARS-CoV-2 (staying in quarantine, isolation, having close contact with the infected (waiting for the test result PCR) is treated as justified, which does not exempt from the obligation to attend classes in another date.


To pass the classes, the student must be present at all classes (with the exception of 1 allowed absence) and have at least a satisfactory (3.0) grade with the  preliminary test and final colloquium.
