INTERNAL REGULATIONS OF THE DEPARTMENT OF ANATOMY 1. In order to complete a semester, a year and to pass Final Anatomy Examination student should participate actively in lectures and practical classes and obtain at least satisfactory grade after each practical classes and credits. CAUTION: During the course of anatomy, the student is supposed to have the knowledge acquired from all previous practical classes. 2. The course of anatomy is divided into eight following parts: - bones, joints and ligaments, - central nervous system, - neck, head and sensual organs, thorax, - abdomen, - perineum and urogenital organs, - upper limb and beck, - lower limb. Immediately after the last practical classes of each part credit will be administered (first term). Retake of the failed credit (second term) follows during next two practical classes and it is organized by a teaching assistant. Third attempt of the credit (commissionary retake) is organized at the end of the second semester (second half of May) after the completing of the entire anatomy course. The commissionary retake of the failed credit is administered by two examiners without participation of teaching assistant. 3. After each semester follows the practical intermediate (semestral PIN-test) which is not obligatory but highly recommended as a preparation to the final practical exam. Only student who wants receive early term (zero term) of Final Anatomy Exam have to complete each semestral PIN-test with the score of 100 points or more (max. possible 120 points). 4. Absence of not more than two practical classes (caused by objective reasons) must be completed with extra group. Absence exceeding two practical classes excludes receiving a credit and student has a chance of completing this credit on the commissionary retake only (second half of May). 5. If an absence during credit was caused by objective reasons (i.e. health problems with medical evidence) student can move a term of credit to next practical class after scheduled one. 8

6. The Final Anatomy Examination is scheduled in summer examination period and consists of two parts: practical (PIN-test) and theoretical (Multiply Choice Questions test). In order to pass the exam, the student should pass two parts with at least satisfactory grades. The level to pass practical exam is 36/ 40 basic points, included in total of 76/120pts. The details of evaluation of the PIN-test are presented on The level to pass MCQ is 76/120. Examination grades according to points: 152 - 160 sat, 161 – 170 more than sat. 171-180 good, 181 - 190 more than good, 191-200 very good. 7. Retake of the Fianl Anatomy Examination is administered in September. Students who passed only the practical part of the Final Anatomy Examination during first term have to retake the failed theoretical component only. 8. Students who completed all 8 credits with the grade 4 and more and received more then 100 points from both semestral PIN-tests can be examined in special early term of exam by the head of department. 9. Practical anatomy involves students in the examination and dissection of human subjects. This privileged opportunity relies on the generosity of local people who recognise the value to medicine that the practical study of human anatomy can provide and generously make their bodies available for that purpose to medical and science students. It is important that, at all times, you respect that generosity and behave accordingly. 10. Much of the course work is carried out in the Dissection Room. To enter it students will need to provide themselves with clean white lab coats (surgical type), white protective hat and photo ID budge. Changing of the clothes should be done outside the Dissection Rooms only. 11. Unauthorized persons may not enter the Dissection Rooms. 12. Students MUST care about hygiene. In particular:  have clean hands with short unpolished nails; no jewellery is allowed,  before the examination of the specimen, student should wash their hands and cover them with vaseline or cream; protective gloves can be also used,  in the case of minor injuries rinse the wound in tap water and manage it properly. 14. While examining the specimens, sufficient care should be applied to prevent the damage or loss of the specimen. 15. Leaders of the student’s groups are responsible for damage or loss of the specimen. 16. Smoking in the area of the Department of Anatomy, as in whole building of Collegium Anatomicum, is prohibited. 17. Eating and drinking in Dissection Rooms is not allowed. 18. The students can, and are encouraged, to bring the anatomical tweezers, lancets, books and atlases to the Dissection Rooms. 19. To gain from the practical classes as much as possible, the students should have sufficient theoretical knowledge about the current topic. 20. At the end of practical classes students should fix the specimens according to the teaching assistant suggestions. 21. Taking of any photo or movie in dissection room is forbridenn

Practical final examination will include all histological preparations demonstrated during practical classes. Written, final examination will include the knowledge of cytology, general histology, embryology and microscopic anatomy. The aim of the course: Students will get acquainted with the structure of cells, their organization into tissues and microscopic structure of organs. Moreover, function of particular cellular structures visible under light and electron microscope and the relationship between function and structure of cells and tissues will be presented. These pieces of information form a foundation for cytophysiology, physiology, biochemistry and histopathology. During embryology lectures students will be acquainted with early stages of human embryo and fetus development. The objectives of Histology and Embryology teaching will be achieved if the students: - get familiar with the structure and function of cells and tissues on the level corresponding to the scope of internationally recognized textbooks, - get acquainted with early stages of human development structure and function of fetal membranes, - are able to recognize, under the microscope, the structures of cells and tissues as well as organs of the human body.

The Main Library Address: ul. W.Oczki 1, 02-007 Warszawa Tel/Fax: 628-22-37 Head: Mirosława Kurpeta, MSc 2 hours of instruction The library training for the students of the first year. The aim of this training is to make students familiar with the work of the library and the rules of using its collections by means of various catalogues. This training covers also the ways of accessing and using the Internet in the Multimedia Reading Room.


Upon completion of each year of their study students are required to take their summer holiday vocational training which is mandatory and is included in the Polish medical curriculum.
First year students undergo a one-month nursing training being attached to the nursing personnel as nursing assistants (auxiliaries at teaching hospitals of medical academies ) universities either in Poland or selected foreign countries.

At a teaching hospital in Poland the head of the ward/department or an appointed instructor in charge provides a detailed programme as well as scheduled duties and maintains both supervision and assessment of student’s performance. The instructor in charge of first year students should be a fully qualified nurse who will supervise all nursing duties performed by students also those carried out with regard to patients in severe condition requiring intensive care. Students are expected to have three to nine seven-hour duties on all shifts including up to three night shifts. The main goals of the training are: 1. To acquaint students with a significant role of the nurse in the nursing and treatment of the patient, 2. To enable students to: - acquire skills in performing ward routines e.g., taking temps and BP, making beds and changing bedclothes, maintaining patients’ personal hygiene, offering bedpans and urinals, feeding patients, preparing drugs ordered for administration, - learn the techniques of giving subcutaneous and intramuscular injections and instituting intravenous infusions. Throughout the course of the training students are expected to make records of their activities and procedures performed. They are also assessed by the instructor in charge and are finally granted their passing mark by the head of the department. Certificates written in English or translated should be submitted to the Dean’s Office of the Medical University of Warsaw by October 5th of the subsequent academic year.
