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

The final verification consists of an oral exam in which the student must demonstrate acquired knowledge of systematic and topographical anatomy. It 'also provided the recognition of a microscopic slide through a microscope.

The evaluation will be weighted average with the other modules of the integrated course.
