Learning outcomes

The Human Physiology Course wants to provide basic knowledge of the functioning of tissues and organs of the human body. The main objective is to learn the functioning of the human body as a distributed set of different organs, organized in reciprocally interacting systems. At the end of the course, the student, in addition to the basic physiology notions, will be able to reason on the integration between cardiovascular, pulmonary, renal and digestive systems in managing the exchanges between the external environment and the internal environment and the homeostasis of the internal environment. By the end of the course students should be able to apply the new knowledge and analytical skills to the physiology of healthy subjects but also to pathology.

Examination Methods

The exam is written. It is carried out together with the evaluation tests of the other two modules of the integrated course (that is, anatomy and histology). The physiology test consists of 40 multiple choice questions, with 5 possible answers. Sufficiency is evaluated on the total of the correct answers in the three modules (anatomy, histology and physiology) and not on the single physiology module. The place of examination is the University Polo in Trento.

Orario lezioni

Carissime Studentesse,

Carissimi Studenti,

di seguito un promemoria relativo alle modalità di erogazione della didattica per il corso di studio A.A. 2021-2022 in Infermieristica (triennale) e Scienze Infermieristiche ed Ostetriche (LM).

Il 29 giugno 2021 il Senato Accademico ed il Consiglio di Amministrazione hanno approvato le Linee guida per l’erogazione della didattica dei corsi di studio A.A. 2021-2022, che prevedono il graduale ritorno all’erogazione della didattica in presenza (previa verifica GREEN PASS) affiancato da organizzazione logistica, modalità̀, metodologie e tecnologie didattiche già̀ adottate dallo scorso anno.

In considerazione della peculiarità del corso professionalizzante, che prevede la presenza obbligatoria sia per le lezioni frontali che numerosi laboratori pratici in presenza, si ricorda che non sarà possibile ottenere la frequenza richiesta solamente con la frequenza streaming o tramite lezioni registrate. La gestione delle presenze in aula/streaming verrà quindi garantita dai coordinatori, in un piano di presenze che dovrà essere seguito dallo studente.

Nei giorni in cui i coordinatori proporranno allo studente la frequenza in streaming si sottolinea l’importanza di avere il video acceso ed una postura ed un abbigliamento consono alla lezione universitaria. In mancanza di questi elementi, la frequenza non verrà conteggiata.  La registrazione della lezione non potrà considerarsi come sostitutiva ma come elemento di supporto didattico. Non varrà quindi come frequenza.

Sperando che, anche grazie all’importantissima campagna vaccinale in corso, si possa tornare quanto prima ad una situazione pre-COVID-19, vi auguro buon lavoro!

In fede

Prof. Paolo F Fabene
