Learning outcomes

The main aim of this course is to give the student the ability to describe, at the basic but exhaustive level and with the appropriate terminology, the structural organization of the healthy human body and the relationship between structural organization and function; emphasis will be given to the apparatuses involved in motor activity. Once acquired, these skills will allow the student to fruitfully follow the curricular courses requiring knowledge of morphology, and will give the graduate a solid cultural background in his professional activity.
To achieve the main aim, the student should attend the lessons, be motivated in the personal and guided study, and take advantage from the ad hoc teaching aids.
