Teaching methods

The didactic activities consist of practical training with small groups of students. If due to the persistence of the health emergency it is necessary to integrate with the remote mode, they will be carried out in streaming in synchronous mode through the Teams platform, with time for interaction with students, practical seminars, discussions of clinical cases, interpretations of clinical reports .
Clinical procedure tutorials may also be provided asynchronously.

Assessment methods and criteria

The topics covered in practical tutorials are an integral part of the contents of the course of Medical Pathology - Medical Semeiology and as such are subject to verification during the oral examination described in the relevant sections of the course of Medical Pathology and Medica Semeiology
