Learning outcomes of the course unit
At the completion of this integrated course the student will be required to know and to identify by light microscopy the structure of the cells and of the human supracellular units, namely tissues, multi-tissue units and morpho-functional units.
He will also be required to know the main morphological and biological aspects of the human development.
Eventually he will be required to show he has acquired, at least, the rudiments of the major requirments for the medical practice: the ability to observe and subsequently to describe with a suitable language what the observation has revealed; in this context, what the microscopic observation has unveiled.
