In Human Anatomy I, we intend that the students learn the general anatomic terminology and terminology of the different parts of the human body (“nomina anatomica”) and also the detailed constitution of the locomotion and cardiovascular systems (except for the vessels from the abdominal-pelvic region and those from the central nervous system). I it is also desired that they develop their abilities of observation and autonomous study, acquire the bases of descriptive method and that they integrate the new morphological concepts with notions of functional anatomy.

Teaching methods and learning activities
2 theoretical classes of 60 minutes per week (total: 25);
1 practice class of 120 minutes per week (total: 13).
Theoretical classes of introduction to the concepts of General Anatomy, introduction or synopsis of big themes and descriptive explanation of the issues. Practice classes for observation, identification and description of structures in the Anatomic Theater.
Não aplicavel. Not aplicable.
Distributed evaluation with final exam
Eligibility for exams
Assiduity to practical classes according to the Academic Regulation: all students that are inscribed must not exceed the limit absences corresponding to 25% of the estimated classes.
Calculation formula of final grade
The acquired knowledge by students will be evaluated through a final exam, which involves a practical test and a theoretical test (both calculated in a 0 to 20 scale).
The practical test (identification of 20 structures on pieces from the anatomic theater) will be made before the theoretical test and is eliminating. The theoretical test includes 40 multiple choice questions.
Final classification will result on the application of the formula (P+3T)/4, were P and T are the classification obtained from the practical and theoretical tests, respectively. Students will be approved if they present a final classification equal or higher than 10.
Examinations or Special Assignments
Special assessment (TE, DA, ...)
According to the pedagogic regulations.
Final exam with the two tests foreseen on the table of Calculation of the Final Classification.
The responsible for this curricular unit will be available for students on Wednesdays from 15h to 17h.
Compulsory curricular unit.
