    The goalThe aim of the course is to introduce to the students a relatively new field of ceramic materials that are used in medicine and dentistry. By the curriculum of this course, it is planned for students to master the techniques of synthesis and also to gain insight into the structure, properties and application of new bioceramic materials. Writing the essay aims to introduce to the students the latest scientific achievements in the field by literature analysis and scientific papers. ;
    The outcomeThe course introduces to the students the basic methods of synthesis, properties and applications of bioceramic materials as well as the compounds for their synthesis. During the course, students will do experimental exercises in synthesis, characterization and in vitro testing of these materials.
