Learning outcomes

------------------------
MM: ANATOMIA UMANA
------------------------
The student should become able to describe the structural organization of the healthy human body at the macro- and microscopical level as well as the essential morphology of body systems and organs therein together with their most relevant functional correlates.
------------------------
MM: ISTOLOGIA
------------------------
The aim of the course is to allow the student to Know and understand the structural organization of the cell and human tissues. At the end of the course the student must be able to: 1) Recognize and describe the structural of the cell, assigning to each component its specific function; 2) Describe the concept of cell differentiation and correlate the cell morphology with their functional activity. 3) Recognize and describe the main human body tissues.
------------------------
MM: FISIOLOGIA UMANA
------------------------
Provide fundamental knowledge about: 1) Functions of organs of the human body on the basis of the physiology of the cells 2) Integration and regulation of the functions of the organs in the apparatus, 3) The relationship between the laws of chemistry and physics and physiology of cells, organs and apparatuses 4) Main physiological parameters of the healthy human.

Examination Methods

------------------------
MM: ANATOMIA UMANA
------------------------
Multiple choice questions (n=20). Five answers, one correct. Correct answer, 1 point; wrong/missing answer, 0 points.
------------------------
MM: ISTOLOGIA
------------------------
The exam is written and includes the use of multiple choice questions (5 replies to each question of which only one is correct). The questions are 20 For each correct question it is assigned a point and there are no penalties for wrong answer. Half of correct questions determines sufficiency. In case of doubt in the preparation of the candidate, the teacher can convoke the student and check his preparation orally
