86356 - Clinical Correlations between Anatomic Variations and Anomalies

Course Unit Page

Academic Year 2017/2018

Learning outcomes

Knowledge and understanding of the anatomical variations of the systems and the molecular basis of morphogenesis, including with regard to pathological situations, particularly with regard to regenerative medicine. Ability to gather and interpret relevant data for independent judgment in the field of human morphological sciences. Ability to transfer the knowledge gained in the field of morphology to a wide biomedical audience. Learning concepts and advanced technologies that will allow to better understand the topics of study of the following years.
