Learning objectives
The course educational target is to develop knowledge about:
· general pathology and pathophysiology in order to analyse causes (etiology) and mechanisms (pathogenesis) responsible for to the establishment of the disease state
· drugs mechanism of action and their effects
· anatomy and physiology of the nervous system as well as the pathological bases of the most frequent neurological diseases
Expected learning outcomes
At the end of the course the student must know:
· the action of drugs and their effects
· the specific terminology to dialogue with other health professionals
· elements of general pathology and general pathophysiology
· how to analyse causes (etiology) and mechanisms (pathogenesis) that contribute to the establishment of the disease state
· elements of diagnostic-clinical pathology and laboratory methodology in cytology, cytopathology, immunohematology and genetic pathology
· the laboratory diagnostic approach to the main pathological conditions
· the anatomy and physiology of the nervous system as well as the pathological bases of the most frequent neurological diseases
· manifestations and symptoms of neurological disorder

Patologia clinica
Course syllabus
- Biomarkers in Medicine
- Hemochromocytometric examination with leukocyte formula
- Hemostasis and haemostatic function assessment test
- Transfusion medicine and blood groups
- Autoimmune diseases and associated diagnostic tests
- Diagnostic tests for pregnancy monitoring
- Pediatric Clinical Pathology
Teaching methods
The course is disseminated through lectures and use of power point slides. At the end of the lesson, students have the lesson material in digital format. It was not possible to activate the Ariel website in time as it was not yet accredited in V4 of the teacher. The lessons include different moments of interaction with the teacher so as not to leave unclear topics. The lecturer has left every type of work contact to allow the exchange of information or doubts about the teaching material of the course.
