We provide teaching of psychiatry and psychiatric nursing in the study programs of Physiotherapy, Dental Hygiene and General Nursing.
The teaching of psychiatry in the field of General Medicine is part of the integrated module of Neurobehavioral Sciences. In the 4th year, the module Neurobehavioral Sciences I (NBV I) is taught, in the 5th year the module Neurobehavioral Sciences II (NBV II) is taught.
In the master's study, we also offer a number of optional and compulsory optional courses, which are continuously expanded and varied.
In the 4th year, the Neurobehavioral Sciences I (V I) module teaches basic clinical aspects of neurology, neuroradiology, psychiatry, psychology and ORL supported by relevant topics from anatomy, pathology, pathophysiology and pharmacology.
The exam takes place in written form of a three-hour test consisting of 96 questions covering all taught subjects. Details on the organization of the module are given in the zero teaching unit in the Neurobehavioral Sciences I module on the website of the Third Faculty of Medicine of Charles University.
In the 5th year, the module Neurobehavioral Sciences II (NBV II) is taught, which continues the content of the module Neurobehavioral Sciences I and expands and deepens it thematically. The emphasis is mainly on the diagnostics and therapy of brain diseases. The module introduces students to the clinical aspects of psychiatry, which organizationally includes practical exercises in psychology and pharmacology, as well as neurology, which organizationally includes neuroradiology and nuclear medicine, and neurosurgery.
Within NBV II, three separate credits can be obtained, in neurology, psychiatry and neurosurgery. In order to be awarded credit for psychiatry, 80% participation in the compulsory part of the course (practice and internships, which also includes psychology and pharmacology) and a written psychiatric examination of the patient is required.
The NBV II course ends with a rigorous state exam in neuroscience, which also includes an oral exam in psychology and a commission oral exam in neurology and psychiatry.
Detailed descriptions of the teaching units, including teaching materials, are available in the Neurobehavioral Sciences II module on the website of the Third Faculty of Medicine of Charles University.
