Learning outcomes of the course unit
Pathology is the keystone of the diagnostic-therapeutic procedures. A proper pathologic interpretation allows modulation of therapeutic protocols according to the morphological characteristics and biomolecular specificity of the no more "standard "patients' pathology(ies). The course is therefore designed in three phases which enable undergraduates to progressively and gradually learn the basic concepts of pathology, the impact of systemic diseases on specific issues related to the study course, and finally on odontostomatological diseases with any reflection on the body and on the "human being" too.
The course intends to provide, in addition, the general patterns of epicritical reasoning with which to confront on a daily basis and to understand the importance of the mutual professionals link(s).
It will be developed the critical sense on different appearance of lesions' gross morphology, the proper interpretation of the microscopic findings and the exact analysis of a pathological report with possible reference to the possible different treatment options to be taken.
As per the provisions of the Master Degree Course.
