Institute of Pathology
The Institute of Pathology carries out its own teaching, scientific and research-related activities. Teaching activities consist of theoretical and practical instruction in pathology, which takes place during the second year of every Bachelor degree programme at the Faculty of Medicine. Third year students in the degree programme Medical Laboratory Technician can write their graduation thesis at the Institute.
The Institute’s scientific and research-related activities are focused on special pathology and cytology, particularly pneumopathology, dermatopathology, gynecopathology, pathology of the mamma and pathology of the thyroid gland. The scientific and research activities involve archive research and a range of lectures and publications. The Institute of Pathology participates in various grant-funded projects (IGMZ), mainly in conjunction with the Faculty Hospital in Ostrava.
The Head of the Institute, doc. MUDr. Jaroslav Horáček, is the coordinator of the fully accredited certification course in Cytotechnology which forms part of the Lifelong Learning
programme. The Institute is also participating in the planning process for the degree programme General Medicine, for which the Institute will provide pathology tuition.
Institute of Emergency Medicine and Forensic Studies
The Institute of Emergency Medicine and Forensic Studies runs the three-year Bachelor degree programme Medical Rescue Worker, whose graduates acquire professional qualifications for the provision of direct urgent care for ill and injured patients whose lives are in immediate danger within the scope of pre-hospital, inter-hospital and early hospital care. To broaden their teaching capabilities, students of the programme take part in first aid courses, provided by the Institute as a part of ESF projects, during primary school education or at individual events such as the Moravian-Silesian Health Days and other health fairs.
Since the academic year 2008/2009, the Institute has been responsible for the three-year combined (part-distance) Bachelor degree programme Social Pathology and Logistics of Field Risks. The goal of this programme is to train professionals capable of effective cooperation with all emergency units of the integrated rescue system and to raise public awareness of movement logistics in hazardous situations.
The Institute also participates in theoretical and practical instruction of first aid, acute states, pain management and self-defence for all other degree programmes of the Faculty of Medicine and, within the scope of its first aid instruction programme, cooperates with all other faculties of the University of Ostrava.
