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

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The study of normal human histology and human anatomy, which is mutually propedeutic, must allow for a level of knowledge of the tissues, apparatus and systems of the human body, a necessary premise for the optimal understanding of motor and sports activities in all stages of life.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

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

Teaching methods

Frontal lecture

EXAMS

Exam description

Oral examination

Assessment methods

The examamination is oral. It is always led by the holders of the course and has a duration of at least 30 minutes (typically 45 minutes). With these modes, given the long experience of examinations in the discipline, the commission is able to verify with high accuracy the achievement of learning outcomes When these are not reached, the student is invited to deepen the study and to take advantage of further explanation by the teacher.
