Course objectives

The course will illustrate the organization of the various tissues, organs and systems by integrating topographic and systematic approaches. Particularly, the histological study of the organ structure will be emphasized, due to its fundamental importance in understanding both physiopathology and organ position within the body. Special attention will be paid to the relations significant to understand the functional mechanisms of the most common diagnostic and therapeutic operations.

Results of learning outcomes

The course will address human morphology with the aim of providing the basis for medical education. The course will also provide the basis for the disciplines of the following semesters (such as physiology, pathology etc.) and to understand the physio-pathological bases of the main human diseases that will be addressed along with the entire medical curriculum. At the end of the course the students shall demonstrate to know the morphological bases of the human body.

Course delivery

The teaching methods of the course will be interactive and stimulating for the students, and will facilitate the acquisition of the basic knowledge necessary to pursue the course of study (core curriculum). This aim is reached by setting the lessons based on the primary health issues of our Region. Furthermore, as far as complementary teaching is concerned, the teaching methods will be interactive, constantly correlating the biological topics covered during the lessons to the clinical issues, also stimulating more active participation of the students.
Students will also receive training at the microscope to become able to distinguish different tissues and organs.

Learning assessment methods

Test: written - Anatomy and Histology

  • Program: the whole exam program.
  • 30 multiple-choice questions (from 0 to 4 correct answers/question - 12 Histology and 18 Anatomy (highly crossed programs). 30 minutes time.
  • Evaluation: [Correct answer = +1, no answer = 0, wrong answer = -0,5].
  • The test will be replayed EVERY EXAM SESSION and it is compulsory.
  • Validity throughout the reference academic year (until the Easter session of the following calendar year). However, the student who has not passed the oral test shall repeat the written one.

Test: oral - Anatomy and Histology

The student usually undergoes three "moments":

  • Illustration of a Microscopy Anatomy preparation;
  • 1-2 Histology questions;
  • 1-2 Anatomy questions;
  • Evaluation: the student can reach a grade of +/- 6 from the written score (also taking into account the score obtained in the 1st written test).
