Course goals and learning objectives
The purpose of studying the discipline: gaining knowledge about the basic physical and physicochemical patterns of biological objects, the functions of living organisms, mechanisms for obtaining information about the state of the internal and external environment, characteristics of medical and biological parameters that determine the state of the organism and its adaptation to change external and internal conditions.

Tasks of the discipline: application of physical and biophysical methods of research of a condition of biological objects, diagnostics of a condition and its management at use of power, material and information influences.
