OVERVIEW

The module of Histology, in the context of the C.I. of Anatomy and Histology, aims to integrate the knowledge of "functional histology" and cell biology by aiming to provide students with knowledge about the organization of cells and human tissues with particular attention to the connection between morphology and function.

 

AIMS AND CONTENT

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

To Know structure, organization and function of different human tissues and morphological-functional characteristics of cells that compose them.

Exam description

During the lessons an ongoing test is carried out to evaluate the level of acquisition of the first contents held in the classroom and concerning the cytology.


The oral exam is aimed at evaluating the learning of knowledge related to the topics illustrated and discussed in the classroom and the ability to integrate and contextualise this knowledge.

Assessment methods

1. The choice of the examination method allows to verify the acquisition of the knowledge inserted in the training objectives

2. The oral test that is the examination methods used and that includes most of the program carried out allows to better evaluate how the student orients himself in the entire tissue scenario addressed in class, allowing also to evaluate his reasoning skills. aimed at associating structural notions with functional concepts
