Teaching language



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.

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

Not applicable

Special assessment (TE, DA, ...)

According to the pedagogic regulations.

Classification improvement

Final exam with the two tests foreseen on the table of Calculation of the Final Classification.
