Learning outcomes

The course introduces the student to the ability of describing the human’s body structure (both considering the macroscopic level and the microscopic level) in normal conditions. Moreover the course develop the knowing of the essential morphologic characteristics of systems, organs, tissues, cells and subcellular structures of the human body and their main related Morpho functional. It also proposes the study of the physiological phenomena of the various systems, in a holistic view from the cell to the whole organism and to recognize the principles of homeostasis and the control mechanisms that oversee them and the major adjustments in non- basal conditions.

Examination Methods


The exam is written. It is carried out together for the three modules (anatomy, histology, physiology). The test consists of 100 multiple choice questions (5 possible answers each; correct answer, 1 point, wrong/missing answer, 0 points). Sufficiency is evaluated on the total of the correct answers. The place of examination is the University Polo in Trento.
