Department of Biomedical Technology#kbt

The Department of Biomedical Technology is synonymous with the top medical technology department. Biomedical engineering is the centre of our interest- the field that our faculty has its name after. We guarantee bachelor and master degree programs in this field and we are also a training centre in doctoral studies. The research teams are focused on artificial pulmonary ventilation, applications of biomedical technology in neurology, mapping of bio electromagnetic activity of the heart, microwave hyperthermia, signal analysis and imaging methods.

We see strong involvement in international cooperation as a prerequisite for quality teaching and research. In addition to a number of Erasmus student exchange agreements (all our students can study abroad for one or two semesters, and many foreign students come to us), we offer all our study programs in English and Russian. At Master's level, we offer, together with 5 top foreign universities, a joint Erasmus Mundus program, in which generous European Commission scholarships are available, especially for students from outside Europe. We have above-standard research cooperation with a number of foreign workplaces. These include RWTH Aachen, University of Sheffield, Faculty of Bioengineering in Iasi, Romania, Faculty of Biomedical Engineering in Kiev, and the Technical University of Kosice.

Apart from the medical regulatory bodies of the Czech Republic, we also cooperate with many Czech hospitals. We cooperate with major Prague hospitals, but also with the University Hospital in Pilsen, Klatovy Hospital, Masaryk Hospital in Ústí nad Labem and many others.  We are engaged in a multilateral cooperation with LINET company. There is successful long-term cooperation of the unconventional artificial ventilation team with SensorMedics from the USA. Our department is also an expert institute offering expert opinions concerning medical devices.

Department of Health Care and Population Protection#kzooo

The Department of Health Care and Population Protection offers bachelor's degree programs in Physiotherapy, Paramedics, Radiology Assistance, Medical Laboratory Technician, Medical Laboratory Diagnostics, Planning and Management of Crisis Situation. The follow-up Master study program offered is Civil Emergency Planning, and the Department of Health Care and Population Protection is used as a training centre for the doctoral study program Civil Emergency Preparedness.

The Department of Health Care and the Population Protection interconnects health care study programs with programs focused on protection of population and this is reflected in specialisation of our teaching staff and externs. Our academic staff cooperate with a number of top-class workplaces, either medical, such as the Institute of Clinical and Experimental Medicine, Central Military Hospital, General University Hospital, University Hospital Motol, Rehabilitation Institute Kladruby, Proton Centre, Emergency Medical Services of the Regions, Clinic THERAP TILIA, or those which focus on protection of  the population such as the Fire Rescue Service of the Czech Republic, Institute of Population Protection of the General Directorate of the Fire Rescue Service of the Czech Republic, selected units of the Army of the Czech Republic, State Institute of Nuclear, Chemical and Biological Protection, State Institute for Nuclear Safety, State Institute of Radiation Protection ,  State Administration of Material Reserves, ORITEST or T-SOFT. In addition, cooperation on solving scientific-research and pedagogical tasks with academic workplaces of some universities is an another benefit, examples being the Police Academy of the Czech Republic, the Technical University of Liberec, the 1st Medical School, Faculty of Medicine, Charles University in Prague, VŠB - Technical University of Ostrava or Faculty of Special Engineering, University of Žilina. Particularly in the area of population protection, contacts are focused on university and scientific research centres abroad, including the Member States of the European Union, Israel, and the Russian Federation.

A scientific team has been set up at the Department of Healthcare and Population Protection that focuses on high-security security research, one of the core programs of the 7th Framework Program of the European Union. The benefit of this team is that it involves emergency medicine specialists, disaster medicine experts and experts with experience in crisis and operational management, strategic development, budgeting and logistics.
The population protection is characterized as a set of activities, procedures and measures taken by competent authorities, other entities and individual citizens, aimed at minimizing negative impacts on lives, health, property and the environment. Based on principles applied in developed countries of the world, population protection in the Czech Republic remains a problem that needs to be addressed. Many citizens are still passive and rely on the activities of professionals.

An important component of population protection is civil emergency preparedness, which is a comprehensive area of non-military planning concerning protection against the consequences of emergencies and crisis situations. Civil emergency preparedness in the Czech Republic's security system is primarily a procedural tool to prevent major emergencies and crisis situations, while ensuring readiness to manage them. Civil Emergency Preparedness is a superior set of activities within a national security system process tool that focuses on the following areas:

  • fulfilling the tasks of population protection
  • continuous operation of state administration bodies and local self-administrative bodies
  • acceptable form of social and economic life
  • operation of critical infrastructure
  • public-private cooperation
  • civilian resources to ensure necessary security
  • civilian military cooperation
  • civilian support for armed forces and security resources

Disaster Medicine is a dynamically developing field, with its needs based on the current political-economic situation, covering the economic crisis, involvement of NATO troops including the Czech Republic's Army in Iraq and Afghanistan, different concepts of justice as perceived by individual ethnicities and religions, disturbed relations between nations, increasing tensions, hatred, chauvinism, and nationalism are possible threats to the population of any state by fanatical individuals or groups.

Other important dangers to the population include transport accidents, rapid migration between territories with different epidemiological standards, natural disasters, disruptions in communication networks, and the targeting of large industrial centres. All of these issues can only be handled by well-trained experts.
