Teaching language



Anatomy teaching/learning is essential in every medical course. In the freshman year, student’s observation and morphological description capabilities are more favorable for the learning of these subjects.
In this sense, so that the characteristics of the normal functioning of the body can be understood and that the deviations of normality can be interpreted, it is essential the early acquisition of anatomical knowledge. Similarly, the language has specific medical terminology that is based on an anatomy nomenclature, allowing all who are dedicated to this area, to understand and to be understood.
In this Dental Medicine Master Degree, the faculty of Anatomy discipline believes that it should be taught on a topographic way so that the students acquire the knowledge necessary for their clinical life.

Discipline aims:

- Provide the acquisition of morpho-functional knowledge of the various devices and systems, so that each student gets the general concept of the unity of these components to later examine the morphological and functional integration of the human body.

- Provide the morpho-functional knowledge of the head and neck preparing the student for clinical disciplines.

Teaching methods and learning activities

Lectures: introduction to the major themes, synthesis of themes and explanation of issues of difficult approach in the practical classes.

Theoretical-Practical Lessons: introduction to the themes presented in the Practical Lessons.

Practical Lessons: study, in small groups, of issues of accessible practical approach, in which the self-learning plays major role; some are tutorial lessons with discussion of issues in groups.



Evaluation Type

Distributed evaluation with final exam

Assessment Components

Description Type Time (hours) Weight (%) End date
Attendance (estimated) Participação presencial 0,00
Total: - 0,00

Eligibility for exams

The period of evaluation of each semester includes a normal season, and a time to appeal. The final assessment will cover the entire area in the curriculum plan. Each assessment shall include a practical and one theoretical.

Practical Exam: usually called the "gincana". Students should identify the structures marked successively in parts of anatomical models, offering 1 minute for each set of 2 structures. For the classification of 10 values, the student must correctly identify 24 of the 30 structures.
The students will only be admitted to the written exam if they obtain a rating equal or exceeding 10 values in the practical exam.

Theoretical Exam: written examination with 60 questions, quoted to 20 values. The questions are multiple choice where only one of five points is correct.

Calculation formula of final grade

Final evaluation = Theoretical exam (x3) + Practical exam (x1) / 4 = 16v.
Continued evaluation (AC): 2v
Assiduity (Ass): 2v
TOTAL: 20 valores

Grade Calculation Formula: (3T+1P)/4*0,8 + AC + ASS

Examinations or Special Assignments

Presentation of review articles, research, or clinical cases, with follow-up in Moodle. These studies involve research and literature search and are optional. The best papers will be presented in the form of Oral Communication or Poster in the Congress of Dental Medicine of FMDUP.

Special assessment (TE, DA, ...)

The working students, professional athlete or leader associations, can be assessed by exam, outside the normal assessment in accordance with applicable law.

Classification improvement

To improve the mark is required to make an exam with theoretical and practical assessments, keeping the same evaluation criteria applied to the exam.
