Learning outcomes

The main aim of this course is to give the student the ability to describe, at the basic level and with the appropriate terminology, the structural organization of some organs and apparatuses of the healthy human body and the relationship between structural organization and function. Once acquired, these skills will allow the student to follow fruitfully the curricular courses requiring knowledge of morphology, and will give the graduate a firm cultural background in her/his professional activity.
To achieve the main aim, the student should attend the lessons, be motivated in the personal study, and take advantage from the ad hoc teaching aids (atlases in printed and digital form, which are freely available at the library).

Assessment methods and criteria

The final examination is intended to assess the student’s knowledge of the structural organization of the healthy human body and the relationship between structural organization and function.
The test will be administered on paper as 30 multiple-choice questions (single-correct-answer from a list of 5 possible answers) on all the topics listed in the program. The multiple-choice test will be evaluated as follows: one point for each question answered correctly, and no points gained or lost when a question is either unanswered or incorrectly answered. The exam score will correspond to the number of gained points.
