Learning outcomes of the course unit
The target of the course is to make the student familiar and acquainted with principles of macroscopic, microscopic and topographical anatomy that will be exploited in order to: 1) become a not to be set aside load of knowledge for a professional in the biomedical field; 2) acquire propaedeucities which are fundamental for the comprehension of the argument that will be matter the following courses; 3)acquire specific competence that can result practically useful in the professional environment.
At the end of the course the student will be asked to be able to express, in a proper technical language,the acquired anatomical concepts and, in particular, the student will be asked to shows hia capacity in identifying organs by reading microscopic slides.
Basic concepts in chemistry and Physics. No specific propaedeucity required.
Course contents summary
The first lessons will concern technical aspects of morphological sciences including basic concepts in microscopy. Macroscopic and topographical anatomy will the subjects of the following lessons,with particular emphasis on the issues more relevant with the peculiar professional profile of this course. The last part of the course will be about microscopic anatomy also with a series practical sessions (slides interpretation).
