Vegetative Physiology

The pre-clinical teaching units on Vegetative Physiology are provided by members of the Institute of Cardiovascular Physiology and Pathophysiology at the Walter Brendel Center for Experimental Medicine (Chair: Prof. Dr. U. Pohl), and of the Institute of Cellular Physiology (Chair: Prof. Dr. Claudia Veigel). Each year, approximately 1000 students of human and dental medicine in the third and fourth term of their pre-clinical studies are educated in Vegetative Physiology. The academic courses include main lectures, seminars and practical courses. In more than 40 main lectures, an introduction to the most important subjects of Vegetative Physiology such as the function of the heart, the circulatory system, blood, kidney or the respiratory system is given to all students. The students can further improve their knowledge being offered practical courses accompanied by additional two seminar units on each topic in small groups. A final seminar unit focuses then on a patient case being related to the respective topic and being processed step-by-step together with the students (problem-oriented learning). A written examination is hold at the end of the semester. For further information on the course of studies, please refer to the pages of the MeCum-Moodle platform of the Medical Faculty of LMU.
