AIMS AND CONTENT

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The General Pathology course aims:
- to provide the knowledge about the etiology and the pathogenesis of human diseases, the physical and chemical causes of disease, the mechanisms of cell injury and cell death, the neoplastic transformation, and the defense responses to injury:
- to provide an overall comprehension of the mechanisms at the base of inflammation and tissue repair;
- to develop an adequate knowledge about the immunological mechanisms involved in the immune response against infectious agents and tumors  and in diseases involved in immune system alterations.

At the end of the course the student will be able:
- to classify the different causes of disease; 
- to recognize the adaptation responses to cell injury; 
- to recognize the morphological and biochemical modifications associated with cell death; 
- to apply the acquired knowledge on the immune response to explain  defense mechanisms against damaging agents; 
- to acquire a correct terminology for the proper presentation of the processes examined.

 

Teaching methods

The course is organized in frontal lessons and deals with various topics of general pathology, immunology, and immunopathology. These topics are explained by the teachers through Poweroint presentations that are shared on Aulaweb. The teachers always recommend the use of a textbook to expand the overall view of the subject.
