Teaching language



- To develop the application of knowledge as the scientific foundation for performing the physical exam of the patient;
- To use the basic anatomical knowledge in the interpretation of symptoms of macroscopic morphologic alterations;
- To interpret and to describe imaging data and to establish correlations with sectional anatomy;
- To understand and describe the morphological bases of techniques of "invasive" procedures for diagnosis and therapeutics.

Eligibility for exams

Distributed continuous assessment in the discussion and theoretical-practical sessions.
Practical assessment by the identification of structures in sections of body regions and in pictures of anatomical sections and of imaging documents; Identification of 40 structures in anatomical sections, imagiologing documents. Identification of at least 30 structures to obtain approval (10 values).
Theoretical assessment with multiple choice questions.

Requirements for approval: To obtain 10 marks in the practical trial to have access to the theoretical exam, and 9.5 marks in the theoretical trial for approval in the curricular unit. In the calculation of the final average the distributed continuous assessment contributes 10%, the practical exam 20% and the theoretical exam 70%.
