According to this, students in the 1st semester are offered lectures, practicals and elective courses in physics and students in the 4th and 5th semesters are offered lectures, practicals and elective courses in general radiology. In addition, courses are offered to acquire or maintain the specialist knowledge in radiation protection for veterinarians.
