Objectives

Histology, that will be taught in the Courses of Medicine and Dental Medicine, will include the microscopic study of cells and extracellular matrix, tissue and organs of the human being in their morphofunctional aspects. Histology aims to supply the structural concepts for a deeper study of physiology.

Embryology, which includes Developmental Biology, will approach the processes related to the beginning of life starting from only one cell, from which millions of cells will result forming (and grouped in) specialized lines, according to a perfect sequence in time and space, and originating tissues and organs.

Teaching methods and learning activities

The course will consist of a weekly lecture (of one hour duration) and two weekly practical sessions (with the duration of 2 hours each): the total of class time will be 132 hours/year. Tutorial self-learning is the pedagogical approach used.

Evaluation Type

Distributed evaluation with final exam

Eligibility for exams

To obtain minimum classification (10/20) in the practical exam (or in the average of the two partial practical assessment sessions);
To obtain minimum classification (10/20) in the theoretical exam (or in the average of the two partial theoretical exams);
To obtain minimum classification (10/20) in the final classification;

Calculation formula of final grade

The final classification is calculated as follows:

Average = (3 + P)/4

Minimum final classification of 10 (in 0 to 20 scale) to be approved.

Classification improvement

The students that whish to improve their final classification are obliged to perform both the practical and the theoretical exams, regardless of the classification previously obtained in each of the evaluations.
