Learning objectives
Il corso si propone di fornire approfondite conoscenze dell'anatomia macro e microscopica degli apparati locomotore, tegumentario, circolatorio, digerente, respiratorio e urogenitale degli animali di interesse veterinario. Integrano il corso concetti propedeutici di anatomia generale, ivi inclusi l'organizzazione generale del corpo e il suo schema strutturale, l'anatomia degli spazi e delle cavità viscerali, l'organogenesi dei diversi apparati. Le nozioni impartite sono strettamente correlate alle conoscenze acquisite durante il corso di Biologia, Istologia ed Embriologia, sono propedeutiche allo studio della Fisiologia e costituiscono la base indispensabile per la comprensione dell'Anatomia Patologica e delle Cliniche.

Course syllabus and organization

Single session

Lesson period
Second semester
Modulo: Anatomia veterinaria sistematica e comparata 1
Course syllabus
The course provides exhaustive knowledge of the macro- and microanatomy of the Integument, the Locomotor, Cardio-circulatory, Respiratory systems in species of Veterinary interest (cat, dog cow and small ruminants, pig, horse, rabbit). The course includes fundamental introductory concepts, such as the general body organization and its structural outline, the anatomy of the splanchnic cavities and the organogenesis of organs and apparatuses

ORGANIZATION
The module 1 comprises one part of theoretical teaching (40 hours) and another part of supervised practical training (16 hours) carried out:
· in the dissecting room through the examination of real bones, joints and skeletons, as well as skeletal and joints models;
· in the dissecting room, through the examination of cadavers to study the organization of the skeletal muscles

During the practical training the students are divided in groups of 5/6 people/each that work autonomously under the direct supervision of the academic staff.

PROGRAM
1. General Anatomy: anatomy nomenclature; general body organization and its structural outline (2 hours)
2. Anatomy of the Locomotor Apparatus: (20 hours)
3. Anatomy of the Cardio-circulatory system (8 hours)
4. Anatomy of the Resapiratory system (6 hours)
5. Anatomy of the integument (4 hours)

Descriptive and comparative criteria are utilized in the study of the different arguments. Differences among species are opportunely underlined.

Course syllabus
Organization
The module 2 comprises one part of theoretical teaching (32 hours) and a second part of supervised practical training (16 hours) carried out:
· in the dissecting room, through the examination of organs and cadavers; plastic models are also available aside
· in the microscopic anatomy room, through the examination of histological specimens of animal organs from the different systems which are object of the course.
During the practical training the students are divided into of 5-6 people/each group.


Program
1. Introduction to the course (4 hours)
2. Anatomy of the Digestive System (16 hours)
3. Anatomy of the Urinary System (4 hours)
4. Anatomy of the Male and Female Genital System (8 hours)
5. Anatomy of the Cardiovascular system

Descriptive and comparative criteria are utilized in the study of the different Systems and they are all preceded by the description of the respective Organogenesis. Every organ is described including shape, position and fixation media, relation to other organs, architecture and structure, blood vessels and nerves. Differences among species are opportunely underlined.
