Accepted exercise work, oral seminar presentation and final exam.
Completion parts must belong to the same implementation
Student can explain the main terminology, definitions and concepts of implantology. Student can describe the stages of wound healing and the components of blood, and explain basis of coagulation. Student can determine inflammation, describe stages of inflammation and compare the types of inflammation. Student can describe different mechanisms of wound healing and recognize the differences between inflammation and infection.

Evaluation criteria for the course
The final grade of the course is determined based on the assessment of all part of the course. The weighting factor of each part is given at the beginning of the course.
