AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

Provide the student with the knowledge necessary to understand the general concepts of clinical pathology in order to critically observe the values ​​that the analysis laboratory provides.

Acquire the ability to choose laboratory tests useful in various pathological situations.

Teaching methods

Frontal lessons, with possible dialectical interactions with students. Given the particular health situation of our country, lessons can also be held online, preferably in live streaming, rather than in attendance.

EXAMS

Exam description

The student will be assessed through an oral test that includes the entire program of the integrated Medicine 1 course. Depending on the health situation of our country at the time of the exam, it can be done online instead of in the presence.

Assessment methods

The student will be examined on the meaning of a group of laboratory tests, pertinent to a certain pathology. The knowledge and definition of the basic elements of the subject must be known for the exam to be considered sufficient. The student may be asked to interpret clinical analysis values ​​critically and integrated into the clinical picture. Conversely, the student may be asked which laboratory tests may be appropriate in the differential diagnosis of certain pathologies
