To understand the course, basic knowledge of cytology and histology are essential

Final Examination: 

Exams are foreseen in the number planned by the Degree Course. Verification of learning will be carried out through an oral interview aimed at the description of a device (chosen by the examining commission) among those presented in class. The student will have to demonstrate to know the human anatomy and to be able to discuss the interconnections with the knowledge of physiology. The accuracy and completeness of the information presented in response to the questions asked will account for 80% of the final evaluation, expressed out of thirty. The test is considered passed with a score of at least 18/30.

Voto Finale

The course provides some notions of human anatomy necessary for the biologist interested in the biomedical aspect. The course aims to introduce the structural organization of the human body and visceral organs, with its main applications of anatomical-clinical character and the mechanisms through which such organization takes place. Learning outcomes: at the end of the course the student will need to know use the acquired knowledge for the purposes of application / professional projection
