HUMAN ANATOMY (PART OF INTEGRATED COURSE)(PCT MD)
We will start to study cells and tissues with aim to understand their organization in the different systems of human body.
The major objective is to achieve the basis of Human Anatomy necessary to understand physiology, with the final goal to comprehend drug mechanism of action and related toxicity.
Attention will be given to the human body organization and to the morphology of different systems and organs. The structure of the various organs will be studied at microscopic level to provide understanding of their function.
· Tissues. Description and characterization and of the 4 basilar tissues:
Epithelium classification and characterization: surface and glands epithelia.
Connective classification and characterization.
· Cardiovascular system: structure of arteries, capillaries and veins. Lymphatic vessels and nodes. Heart.
· Alimentary system: digestive segment, mouth, pharynx, esophagus, stomach, small intestine and large intestine. Exocrine digestive glands: major salivary glands, liver and exocrine pancreas.
· Urinary system: kidney structure, morphology and microscopic organization. Structure, morphology and microscopic organization of the lower urinary tract.
· Endocrine system: structure, morphology and microscopic organization of pineal gland, hypophysis (anterior lobe and neurohypophysis), thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal gland (cortex with glomerulosa, fasciculata and reticularis zona and medulla) and islets of Langerhans.
· Respiratory system: structure, morphology and microscopic organization of the larynx, trachea, lung and pleura.
· Outline of male reproductive system
· Outline of female reproductive system.
· Outline of Integumentary system.
Embriologic development of neuronal tube.
Ventricular system, cerebrospinal fluid, ependyma and choroid plexus.
Cranial meninges and blood-brain barrier.
Spinal cord with spinal nerves.
Brain stem and cranial nerves from III to XII.
Special senses: structure, morphology and microscopic organization of the eye with optical nerve. Ear structure, morphology and microscopic organization with vestibular organ and cochlea.

Final test is based on 15 written questions (multiple choice) and an oral test. Passing of the written test (with at least a score of 9/15) allows the student to be admitted to the oral test.
During the examination teachers will verify the competence and the ability to make connections of the students.
