It is intended to enable students to understand the organization of the human body by studying its histological constitution and understanding the distribution of its institutions in a systemic concept. It is also intended to enable them to observe, describe, and correctly use the anatomical nomenclature, always in a functional perspective.
Knowledge, abilities and skills to be acquired
Upon completion of the course the student shall be able to:
- describe the structure (gross and histology) and functions of various organs of the human body
- identify the various tissues and organs of the different systems of the human body
- appreciate basic coordinated working pattern of different organs of each system
Teaching methodologies and assessment
The course comprises theoretical (T) and theoretical-practical (TP) classes. The tutorial classes are to clarify and deepen the subjects taught in master classes with the aid of suitable teaching materials.
As for evaluation: A) In continuous evaluation, the final grade results from the weighted average of the following: T classes: a) 4 rapid response tests (maximum duration for 10 minutes) - 10%, b) 2 frequencies - 40%. TP classes: a) 2 written tests - 10% each. b) Performance of short response tests (maximum duration for 10 minutes) - 10%. b) Discussion of works - 20%
The worker-student student who opts for continuous assessment must comply with the requirements set out above.
B) The evaluation by final examination applies to students who opt for it covering the whole of the syllabus.
The grade improvement is realized in the form of proof of oral assessment, encompassing the entire syllabus.
