Embryology. Both the lectures and the practices will take place online synchronously through the use of the Microsoft Teams platform. During the practice dissections of pregnant uteri and fetuses at different stages of development from different species will be performed.
Cytology and Histology. Of the total 36hrs, 28hrs will be lectures, while 8hrs will consist of practice lessons, which will focus on the observation of real histological preparations. Both the lectures and the practices will take place online synchronously through the use of the Microsoft Teams platform.
Anatomy 1. All teaching activities will take place from remote through Teams platform. All students will be requested to recognize bones, main joints and groups of muscles.
In addition, the following skills must be acquired:
1) Knowledge and understanding. At the end of the learning process, the student will have
to know the main stages of morphogenesis, from fertilization to embryonic development.
Furthermore, student will have to learn the morphology of the embryonic appendages. The
student will also have to know the structural and ultrastructural organization of the animal
cell (cytology) and in particular the composition of the cytoplasm, the nucleus and the
morphology of the various cellular organelles. In addition, the student must, at the end of
learning, know the morphological characteristics of the various animal tissues. The student
will also have to recognize the morphological characteristics of the bones of the various
animal species, the main joints and muscles.
2) Ability to apply knowledge and understanding. Furthermore, the student will be able,
starting from the knowledge of the morphology of the cell and tissues, to apply these
notions to the study of the organs and systems of the Anatomy of Domestic Animals.
3) Critical and judgment skills. The student, through the notions imparted during the course,
which consist, among other, of slides projections of morphogenetic processes, electron
microscopy (cellular ultrastructure) and optics (tissues) and osteology will have to
demonstrate that he is able to recognize independently and critically processes of embryo
formation, cellular organelles and microscopic characteristics of animal tissues and finally
the characteristics of bones.
4) Ability to communicate what has been learned. As part of the learning
assessment methods, the student must be able to express concepts relating to
Embryology, Cytology and Histology and Osteology according to the appropriate
terminology. In addition, the interpretation of a histological preparation will also be
performed following criteria (eg histological staining typical of a specific tissue)
learned during the course and which will also be used in the learning of Microscopic
5) Ability to continue studying independently. The description of the morphogenetic
processes as well as the cell morphology and in particular the ultrastructure of the
organelles (Golgi apparatus, mitochondria, ribosomes, nucleus) and finally the osteology
will constitute an indispensable tool, not only for the continuation of the course but also in
the postgraduate studies. Finally, the study of tissues
