Learning objectives

Knowledge and understanding.
Students need learn the fundaments of the structure and component of the anatomy of the different organs in the adult;
Applying knowledge and understanding
Students must use acquired knowledge to recognize gross anatomy, position of organs in anatomical models.
Making judgments
Ability to reason about the correlation between structure and function of an organ.
Communications skills
Ability to understand and be understood in technical situations
Learning skills
Ability to summarize a scientific paper published on anatomy journal and to write a scientific progress report

THE COURSE MEANS TO SUPPLY THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE
ORGANIZATIONS OF THE VARIOUS ORGANS AND APPARATA OF THE
HUMAN ORGANISM and THE ADEQUATE ANATOMICAL KNOWLEDGE OF THE STRUCTURES OF THE APPARATUS OF
THE SIGHT.

Presentation used during class lectures will be uploaded weekly on elly platform, http://elly.medicina.unipr.it

Teaching methods

Lectures will be held on-site in compliance with safety standards, provided that further instructions on the ongoing health emergency are not implemented. Supporting material will be available on the specific, student-reserved platform (Elly) and will include slide presentations, audio-video aids or video-recording of the lectures.

Before each new lesson, the teacher will first summarise then check
whether the previous topics have been well understood through an
interactive discussion with the students.

Assessment methods and criteria

Oral Exam.
There will be a final oral exam during which the student wil be asked questions on topics discussed during the course. Not only will be the understanding of a specific topic valued, but also the capacity of the
student to trace those links necessary to the understanding of the biological phenomenon described.
In case of the PERSISTENCE OF THE HEALTH EMERGENCY, the exams will be conducted remotely, as follows:
remote oral questions, through the Teams platform (guide http://selma.unipr.it/).
Students with SLD / BSE must first contact Le Eli-che: support for students with disabilities, D.S.A., B.E.S. (https://sea.unipr.it/it/servizi/le-eli-che-supporto-studenti-con-disabilita-dsa-bes)
