Teaching methods

Attendance to learning activities is mandatory; the minimum attendance requirement to be admitted to the final exam is 66% of lessons. For Integrated Courses (IC), the 66% attendance requirement refers to the total amount of I.C. lessons. Students who fail to meet the minimum attendance requirement will not be admitted to the final exam of the course, and will have to attend relevant classes again during the next academic year.

Professors may authorise excused absences upon receipt of proper justifying documentation, in case of illness or serious reasons. Excused absences do not count against a student’s attendance record to determine their minimum attendance requirement.

Assessment methods

Physiology and Anatomy (oral exam) Semiology (written test)

Assessment is marked out of 30 (cum laude), and 18 is the minimum score to pass each subject of the I.C.

Final score is calculated proportionally to the credit for each I.C. subject (Physiology 7 credit, Anatomy 3credit, Semiology 1credit). More details are provided each year during the class.
