First Semester
Standard lectures hours: 

Basic knowledge of anatomy, organ physiology, biochemistry and general pathology (topics covered during the first year of study) are useful for understanding the topics covered during the course. There are no constraining prerequisites for this integrated course.

Final Examination: 

The learning assessment consists of an oral test of PHARMACOLOGY and an oral test of GENERAL ANESTHESIOLOGY and MEDICAL SURGICAL EMERGENCIES

To pass the exam, the student must demonstrate adequate theoretical knowledge of the topics covered during the course and be able to properly expose the knowledge acquired. To pass the exam a positive outcome (pass mark: 18 thirtieths) must be obtained for both tests scheduled for each of the two modules. The final evaluation will be the average of the evaluations of the two tests, provided that both are sufficient.

PHARMACOLOGY: oral test. Students will be asked both wide-ranging and more specific questions. The student must demonstrate the ability to properly expose the knowledge acquired regarding the fundamental principles of pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics that condition the correct drug dosage, the mechanisms of drug actions and toxicity in healthy individuals and patients and the characteristics of the therapeutic classes addressed in the clas . The answers will be positively evaluated depending on the completeness and synthesis in the presentation of the topics, also using diagrams and graphs.

GENERAL ANESTHESIOLOGY and MEDICAL SURGICAL EMERGENCIES: The student will have to elaborate a written test consisting of 30 multiple choice questions, to be solved in 45 '.
