Teaching language



General objective: To provide information and, in so doing, to facilitate learning, regarding the different structures that constitute the several systems of the human body. Specific objectives: learn the anatomical vocabulary essential for success in the medical course and career; learn how to recognize, name, describe and give functions to the structures that compose the locomotor system, including their gross anatomical variations; develop observation, description and self-learning skills.


Lectures: Introduction to the study of Human Anatomy. Anatomical terminology. General anatomy of the bones. General anatomy of the joints. General anatomy of the muscles and fasciae. General anatomy of the vascular and nervous systems. Descriptive, functional and applied anatomy of the back. Descriptive, functional and applied anatomy of the pelvis. Descriptive, functional and applied anatomy of the chest wall. Descriptive, functional and applied anatomy of the abdominal wall. Descriptive, functional and applied anatomy of the upper limb. Descriptive, functional and applied anatomy of the lower limb. Human posture and locomotion. Anatomy of the skull.
Practical sessions: Anatomical position. Anatomical plans. Vertebral column. Exocranial surface of the occipital. Hip bone. Joints of the vertebral column and pelvis. Joints of the vertebral bone column with the head. Muscles of the back and of the shoulder. Sternum. Ribs and costal cartilages. Joints of the thorax. Muscles of the thorax. Diaphragm. Muscles and fasciae of the abdomen, pelvis and perineum. Vascularization and enervation of the chest and abdominal walls. Bones of the upper limb. Joints of the upper limb. Connecting muscles of the upper limb to the chest wall and the vertebral column. Muscles of the scapula, arm, forearm and hand. Arteries and veins of the upper limb. Brachial plexus. Bones of the lower limb. Joints of the lower limb. Muscles of the lower limb. Arteries and veins of the lower limb. Lumbar plexus and sacral plexus. Skull.

Eligibility for exams

According to Pedagogical Regulation.

Calculation formula of final grade

The DISTRIBUTION ASSESSMENT (AD) will is based on practical (ADP) and theoretical tests (ADT) and will contribute for 20% of the final classification.

The FINAL EXAM (EF) will includes a practical exam and a theoretical exam. The practical exam (P) consists in the identification of anatomical structures, “Bell ringer” type. There will be 30 structures to be identified. These will be arranged in pairs, for the students to identify each group of two structures in 1 minute. To obtain the classification of 10 (scale: 0-20), they will need to identify 18 structures, corresponding the classification of 20 for the correct identification of the 35 structures. The intermediate marks will be calculated proportional to the number of structures identified. Students obtaining 10 in P+ADP will be admitted to the theoretical exam.

The theoretical exam (T) consists of 50 short answer questions, worth 0.4 marks each. The passing grade is 10 in T+ADT.

The final grade (CF) will be calculated by applying the formula: CF = 3CT + 1CP/4

Anatomical dissections will be classified in the range from -1 to 2. The highest mark (2) will be only attributed to the exceptionally well done works, while the negative mark (-1) will be given to students who did not succeed to finish their dissections in proper time. The marks obtained for the dissections will be added to the final classification (CF).

The students who will obtain the final classification of Very Good (18, 19 or 20) will have to do an oral exam, being the classification of 17 values assured. This does not apply to the students with a classification ranging 10-17 and who request an oral exam to improve their grade. All the students in these conditions can apply for an oral exam.
