Learning objectives
Describe the organization of the human body in its macroscopic and microscopic aspects, with particular deepening of the organs and structures that constitute the lower limb.
Expected learning outcomes
At the end of the integrated course the student has understood the organization of the human body in its macroscopic and microscopic aspects and possess a deep knowledge of the organs and structures of the locomotor apparatus and specifically of the lower limb.
Course syllabus and organization

Unique edition

Prerequisites for admission
General knowledge of chemistry and biology
Assessement methods and criteria
The exam consists of a written test of general anatomy and histology consisting in 40 multiple choice questions and an oral assessment on the histological aspects which takes place in the following days according to the alphabetical order and extraction at fate of the beginning letter.
Passing the written test allows access to the oral exam. The 30th grade generated by the quiz can be confirmed, raised or lowered from the final oral exam without constraints.
There are no on-going tests.
The results of the written test will be communicated to the students through a printed document hanging on the board of the Institute located in via Mangiagalli 31 and via email to the student representatives.
