The course of Anatomy aims, as a main objective, to provide the student of Medicine and Surgery with morpho-functional information on the structure of the internal organs and the Nervous System of Human, essential to the practice of basic medicine. In addition to the study of the essential morphological characteristics of these systems, the functional correlates at cellular and sub-cellular level should be clarified. The student must learn the contents of Cardiovascular Anatomy, Splancnology and Neuroanatomy necessary to the examination of the patient, and for the understanding of symptomatological pictures and their evolution in pathological degenerations. It should also acquire knowledge of how the structural organization of the various apparatuses is carried out during embryonic development. The programme-specific learning outcomes are consistent with the general provisions of the Bologna Process and the specific provisions of Directive 2005/36 / EC. They are located within the European Qualifications Framework (Dublin descriptors) as follows:
1. Knowledge and understanding
Demonstrate a complete theoretical knowledge of the main anatomical structures.
Describe the organization of the different apparatuses from a microscopic and macroscopic point of view. Connect the anatomical and functional aspects in order to understand the consequences of possible alterations or malfunctions.
Know the vascularization of all organs in the human body and associated structures.
2. Applied knowledge and understanding
Apply theoretical knowledge in the clinical field.
Identify and recognize anatomical structures and tissues using microscopic techniques.
3. Autonomy of judgment
Recognize the importance of in-depth knowledge of subjects consistent with adequate medical education.
Identify the fundamental role of correct theoretical knowledge of the subject in clinical practice.
To explain the arguments orally in an organized and coherent way. Use of a suitable scientific language in accordance with the topic of the discussion.
5. Ability to learn
Recognize the possible applications of skills acquired in the future career. Assess the importance of the knowledge acquired in the general medical education process.
