The assessment of the training course begins during the course, through in itinere tests of a theoretical-practical type, and ends at the end of the course, with public oral exam, in the examination of the integrated course of Veterinary Surgical Clinic. Possible topics of discussion are all those dealt with in the course of the training as well as the program of the course and the calendar of the lessons. The teacher questions the student on a topic chosen at random, in initially general terms. The discussion then enters more specific and gradually more detailed details, recalling correlations and links with the most relevant topics. In this way, there is a wide possibility of demonstration by the student and evaluation by the teacher, of the degree of knowledge of the various issues, for a final evaluation that is as objective as possible, all of which is also a teaching moment for the students present.
