Learning objectives
The integrated course develops knowledge of the clinical aspects and etiopathological factors of diseases of both general and odontostomatological interest.
Expected learning outcomes
At the end of the course, the student has acquired knowledge of the clinical aspects and etiopathological factors of diseases of both general and odontostomatological interest.
Course syllabus and organization

Single session

TEACHING METHODS
The lessons will be held on the Microsoft Teams platform and can be followed both in synchrony on the basis of the established time, and asynchronously because they will be recorded and left available to students on the same platform. Eventual replacement of some activites planned online with lessons in presence will be possible if the regulations and provisions regarding the COVID emergency allow it. Relevant communication will be reported on the notice board of the Ariel teaching site. Students are therefore encouraged to check the Ariel website regularly.
PROGRAM AND REFERENCE MATERIAL
The program and the reference material will not change from last year.
LEARNING ASSESSMENT
The exam will be held orally using an IT (Microsoft Teams or other) platform or, in presence in written form if the regulations and provisions regarding the COVID emergency allow it.
Prerequisites for admission
No prior knowledge is required
Assessment methods and Criteria
Written test with multiple choice questions
A minimum number of 18 correct answers is required to pass the test (out of a total of 30 questions)
The test results are communicated to each candidate via email
