Learning outcomes of the course unit
During the course the student will acquire knowledge about the arguments presented in the lectures, in particular knowledge that will help them understand the anatomy of cardiovascular system and the diagnostic tools to study the anatomy of cardiovascular system.
These objectives will enable students to understand and then to implement in practice, with discrete independent judgment, the following skills: cardiovascular evaluation of anatomy and differences between diagnostic tools in assessing cardiovascular anatomy.
The student will acquire capacity to learn and communicate this informations, which will be assessed during the course and subsequently questioned orally during the oral examination.
