Teaching methods

The lectures were held at Imola and will be supported by Power Point slides in order to facilitate the acquisition of fundamental anatomical basis

Assessment methods

The oral examination at the end of the course aims to assess the achievement of the defined objectives. The student must show that he understands the structure of the human organism in its basic features for survival of the individual. The final vote of the entire integrated course of Biomedical Sciences will be defined as the average of the marks obtained in the individual modules (Biology, Anatomy, Physiology).

Teaching tools

Plastic of the various apparatus organs (eg. The locomotor: skeleton, circulatory: heart etc.). Computer for projection of classroom lessons.
