Assessment methods and criteria
The assessment of the achievement of the objectives of the course consists in an oral examination. Through questions about the contents of the course the student preparation will be tested. Exams will specifically consist of 2 phases, as follows. Phase 1: identification and description of two microscopy slides; the student must recognize and describe both slides. Phase 2: oral examination with the evaluation of the knowledge of anatomy of digestive, reproductive and endocrine systems, neuroanatomy and topographic anatomy. The student must be successful in both phases, as indicated.
