- Teaching methods
There are no constraining prerequisites for this course. The comprehension of the course requires basic knowledge on anatomy, organ physiology, biochemistry and general pathology (all these subjects have been studied during the first year of the degree course).
Achievement of the teaching goals will be assessed by means of an oral examination of pharmacology and a written multiple choice test for General Anesthesiology and Clinical and Surgical Emergency. The oral and written tests aim to evaluate the degree of understanding of the contents covered by the course. Particular focus will be addressed to the knowledge of the main topics explained during the lessons and the ability of the student to apply such contents to different medical diseases as well as to emergency rescue care and resuscitation. Marks will be expressed in 30/30 and the examination is overcome when the student gets at least 18/30 in both the oral and written test. The final mark will consists in the average of the three single marks. The student fails if just in one of the two test gets a mark lower than 18/30 and the student can try the examination in the successive call.
