HYGIENE, CLINICAL MEDICINE AND PHARMACOLOGY - BA
Basic knowledge of anatomy, physiology, general pathology and nursing (topics covered during the first year of study) are useful to understand and comprehend the topics covered during the course. There are no constraining prerequisites for this integrated course
The learning verification consists of an oral test. Students will be asked both wide-ranging and more specific questions regarding the topics covered in the three modules of the integrated course.
The objective of the exam is to verify the degree of achievement of the educational objectives indicated above, assessing the level of knowledge, critical in-depth analysis of the topics addressed and the ability to apply them to individual pathologies, drug treatment and current hygiene and health standards.
In the course of the test evaluation Teachers will also consider the student's ability to articulate the speech with clarity, precision, relevance and language properties.
A positive outcome of the oral tests in each of the three modules is mandatory to pass the exam (mark to pass: 18 thirtieths). The final evaluation will be the average of the evaluations of the three tests, provided that all are sufficient. The mark is expressed in thirtieths.
