GYNECOLOGY AND OBSTETRICS
Learning outcomes of the course unit
The main aim of the integrated course of gynecology and obstetrics is to enable students to classify the health conditions of a woman particularly with reference to her general health conditions. The main aim, therefore, is to examine both gynaecological and obstetric issues in relation to general medicine:
Adolescence, fertile age, post-menopause are fundamental stages in the life of a woman and coincide with variations in the health status both from a physical and from a psychic point of view. In-depth knowledge of these issues is fundamental to enable general practitioners to make more appropriate diagnoses and to choose the most suitable treatment as well as to significantly contribute to the prevention of the tumours of the female genital apparatus. In depth knowledge of pathophysiological alterations during pregnancy and of the functioning of the various organs and systems is essential for the understanding and management of many pregnancy-related diseases often associated with topics related to internal medicine.
