OVERVIEW

The Course is meant to give an understanding of the main causes of disease and knowledge of the physiological response to cell and tissue damage. The Course gives also insights into the pathogenesis of important processes such as metabolic diseases and blood related disorders

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Knowledge of different aspects of general physiopathology that enable graduate students to explore or expand any field connected to this topic.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The Course is aimed at providing the student with the fundamentals for understanding the principles of pathophysiology using a multi-perspective approach.

The expected result is the student's full comprehension of the mechanisms leading to diseases and their capacity to be able to co-ordinate and deliver their ideas on the topics at 360 degrees.

Teaching methods

The teaching is composed of 20 hours of live lectures on all the syllabus subjects which are illustrated through specific Power Point presentations available on Aulaweb.

The tutors suggest the use of reference books to further develop the various topics in order to be fully prepared for the exam.

Note that, in line with university regulations, the attendance to these lectures is compulsory.

Assessment methods

The verification of the student's learning process will be based on the final oral exam which is aimed at testing the acquired knowledge by the student of the expected learning outcomes.

In order to pass exam, the student has to demonstrate a sound knowledge of the etiological basis and pathogenetic mechanisms of diseases in humans and the ability to analyze the main cellular aspects.

The following elements will contribute to the final mark:

  • ability to critically discuss the requested topics;
