The final evaluation (exam) will take place in two stages
1) written test on the topics of the program (questions with multiple answers or, alternatively, development of an essay on given questions). Passing the written test will allow access to the second assessment phase.
2) Interview on the topics of the program.
To pass the exam, the student must demonstrate that he or she has the required knowledge as a prerequisite, i.e.
1) detailed knowledge of normal macroscopic and microscopic anatomy and of physiology of organs and systems
2) basic knowledge of the pathologies covered by the course.
In particular, the student must demonstrate knowledge of each pathology: epidemiology, pathogenetic mechanisms, main macroscopic and histological characteristics of the lesions, prognostic and predictive factors, therapeutic approaches with related biomarkers and prognostic factors. The anatomopathological classifications will be required with a view to a correct therapeutic and prognostic classification.
The student must also be able to make the necessary reasoning for differential diagnoses in the various fields of human pathology.
The determination of the final grade therefore also takes into account the logical skills as well as the use of an appropriate language.
Enrollment for the exam takes place according to the online methods provided by the University.
