Integrated course unit module: Human anatomy

Learning objectives

1st LEARNING ENPOINT: the student is expected to know the human body structure in its macro- and microscopic aspects, in a clinical perspective, with a special focus on head and neck anatomy.
2nd LEARNING ENPOINT; the student is expected to be able to describe shape, position, relationship, structure vascularization and innervation of the different organs of the human body. The student is supposed to be able to identify individual morphological diversities providing a methodological approach preparatory to the clinical reasoning
3rd LEARNING ENPOINT: the student is expected to be able to develop an anatomical-based thinking and to possess autonomous judgement on the correlation between structure and function.
4th LEARNING ENPOINT: the student is expected to master an anatomical language.

Teaching methods

Interactive class lectures. Power point slide will be projected and uploaded weekly on “Elly” platform (https://elly2023.medicina.unipr.it). Slides will be available for Dental Students only (“5027 - ODONTOIATRIA E PROTESI DENTARIA”). Atlas, anatomical models and the laboratory of virtual interactive dissection will be also available. Anatomical rooms with anatomical models will be available for individual learning

Assessment methods and criteria

The achievement of the above-described learning objective will be verified by a written text (section on Locomotor apparatus) an oral exam (all the other sections). See specific sections for details. Communicative skills will be assessed too. The result will be announced immediately after.
Students with DSA/BSE must contact the University's Reception and Inclusion Centre (CAI) in advance and follow the CAI's instructions for any requests for personalised examinations (https://www.cai.unipr.it/ ).
