There are in average 1,050 students during the first half-year and 650 in the second.

The Department uses for lectures and labs three classrooms. Each has 50 binocular microscopes and TV circuit system coupled to a computer which has CD ROM and TV camera for transmission of images of tissue sections, light micrographs and electron micrographs.

Lectures are followed by lab classes where the students use slide collections that allow the students to study the basic knowledge of the structure of cells, tissues and organs. Ultrastructure is studied with electron micrographs and visits to the Department’s electron microscopes.
