Course delivery

Haematology

The lectures will take place at the scheduled times in the webex room of Dr. Fava (https://unito.webex.com/meet/carmen.fava) or in that of Pro.ssa Cilloni (https://unito.webex.com/meet/daniela.cilloni).

Clinical cases will also be held, which will be commented collectively during the lesson and the projection of videos relating to the topic covered during the lesson.

Dermatology

Lectures on campus or on Webex: https://unito.webex.com/meet/pietro.quaglino

Infectious diseases

The course will be delivered through Live classes and both slides and additional content will be uploaded on Moodle. Interactive cases will be discussed with the students and Socrative will be used for increasing the interaction on diagnostic and therapeutic processes.

Learning assessment methods

Haematology

In the event that more than 15 students register for the exam, the exam will take place through multiple choice quizzes in English. If 15 students or fewer than 15 are enrolled, the exam may be oral (in English) at the teacher's discretion. To facilitate the organization it is recommended that students register for the exam within 10 days before the scheduled date.

Dermatology

  • Written test with multiple-choice questions
  • Oral examination. Students will be asked to describe a clinical picture and discuss their approaches to diagnosis and treatment (in case of online exams)

Infectious diseases

Learning will be assessed through an oral examination that will explore both the students' skills in decribing infectious diseases and in applying the acquired knowledge in the management of virtual clinical cases.
