Course syllabus and organization

Single session

Responsible
Lectures will still take place in classreoom; if the students can't reach the building we might consider alternative ways.
Prerequisites for admission
To take the Translational Cardiovascular Medicine and Surgery exam, students must have already passed all the exams of the first and second year (Fundamentals of Basic Sciences, Cells, Molecules and Genes 1 and 2, Human Body, Functions and Mechanisms of Diseases).
OBSTETRICS AND GYNECOLOGY: students must review the reproductive physiology from the Functions course
PEDIATRICS: students must review the physiology of growth from the Functions course
Assessment methods and Criteria
Students' evaluation will be assessed with oral examinations focused on the topics developed during the course. The "Obstetric & Gynecology" and the "Pediatrics" modules of the exam will be organized in different dates. Once passed, the mark obtained in one module is valid until the students complete the exam with the other module. The final mark is the average of mark obtained in the two modules.
The exam is deemed to be passed successfully if the final grade is equal to or higher than 18/30. In the event of a full grade (30/30) honors (lode) may be granted with the consent of all the professors.
Registration to the exam through SIFA is mandatory.
