Teaching methods

Gross anatomy
The teachers are always present in the classrooms where the workshops are held, to help students, divided into groups, to use the available material, leading them to a better comprehension of the discipline.
Under the guidance of tutors (senior students), some anatomy surface activities are organized, so that students can identify the main landmarks of the splancnic organs starting from the bony structures of reference.

Microscopic anatomy
The teachers, after an extensive description of the microscopic features of individual organs, help students, divided into small groups, during the observation of the microscopic slides.

Assessment methods

The final verification consists of an oral exam in which the student must demonstrate the acquired knowledge of the systematic and topographical anatomy and neuroanatomy of the various organs. Students must also identify the anatomical structure of a microscopic slide.

Teaching tools

Lectures using computer presentations.
CT and MR imaging,
