Learning objectives
The course consists of 2 parts:
· a part of Semeiotics, dedicated to the learning of signs and symptoms with references to the pathophysiology and the ability to collect the patient history and perform a correct physical examination.
· a part of General Pathology, dedicated to the study of the diseases about Respiratory System, Cardiovascular System, Kidney, Urinary Tract. This part is also dedicated to the Anatomopathological system of the aforementioned organs.

During the "Systems and Diseases I" teaching will be pursued the aim to know, for each considered organ, the diseases frequently encountered which are of particular importance in terms of seriousness, possibility of therapeutic intervention, educational exemplariness. Other important tasks of this course are: define different diseases, know the most important epidemiological data, illustrate the causes and pathogenetic mechanisms underneath a urological disease, show the basics of the nosographic framework, understand the pathophysiological causes of signs and symptoms, comprehend biochemical data, know the indications for the use of instrumental imaging investigations useful for diagnosis.
Anatomo-pathological and / or genetic classification is also provided for some diseases.

The course therefore aims to provide students with:
· knowledge of the structure and function of the main organ systems, including molecular, biochemical and cellular mechanisms for maintaining homeostasis
· knowledge of population health, principles of epidemiology and scientific basis of research methods relevant to health care
· knowledge of the etiopathogenesis and the anatomopathological bases of cardiological, pneumological, nephrological and urological diseases
· nosographic, etiopathogenetic and pathophysiological knowledge of the most relevant diseases of the various organs and / or apparatuses in the context of a unitary and global understanding of human pathology
· clinical concepts of diseases of various organs and / or systems and their correlations with symptoms, physical signs and functional alterations, interpreting their pathogenetic mechanisms and understanding their clinical significance
· ability to practice preventive medicine by identifying, addressing and supporting strategies to maintain health and to identify and treat diseases early and so provide useful advice on lifestyle practices and prevention
· guidelines to accomplish research in the medical literature, including electronic databases, in order to identify and comprehend updated evidence and so optimize patient care
· support in promoting lifelong learning and independent research of new knowledge and skills while respecting patient care and patient well-being
Expected learning outcomes
· A responsible understanding of the importance of maintaining health to prevent diseases through the application of learned pathological principles and the application of appropriate clinical pathways
· the ability to understand and to use the basic principles of epidemiology in its practical application
· the ability to adopt the principles learned in health maintenance and disease prevention
· the ability to explain the basic nature of pathological processes from the point of view of causality, epidemiology, natural history and the structural and functional anomalies that ensue
· the ability to recognize and be able to describe the signs and symptoms of the most relevant human diseases and also of the main organ and / or systems failures evaluated in the various lessons of the Course. All that has to be learnt in the context of a unified and global vision of the relationship between signs, symptoms and pathologies
· the skills to recognize the main cardiovascular, respiratory, nephrological and urological diseases, through a correct differential diagnosis or an adequate setting of the diagnostic program with the use of laboratory / functional / radiological examinations and knowledge of the principles of clinical management
· the acquisition of the skills necessary to formulate a clinical question and perform and present an evidence-based review of that selected health topic
· demonstration of a commitment to lifelong learning, self-awareness in areas of personal lack of concepts, independent research of new knowledge and skills in order to provide optimal assistance to our community
· the acquisition of the preparatory knowledge necessary to follow with success the subsequent courses, in particular those of "Semeiotics and pathology of apparatus 2", of "Medical Clinic" and "Clinic and Surgical Therapy"
