Course syllabus and organization

Single session

Assessment methods and criteria:
If the exams cannot be performed in university classrooms, due to sanitary reasons, oral exams will be carried out in Teams.
Teaching methods:
During the evolving sanitary situation there could be changes in teaching methods, the changes will be promptly communicated through the Ariel website of "Corso di Laurea in Dietistica" and through the teaching Ariel website.
Prerequisites for admission
The student must have acquired basic knowledge of physical chemistry and mathematics, verified by the entry test.
Assessment methods and Criteria
A single written test divided into several parts: open-ended questions, multiple-choice questions.
For the diagnostic imaging and radiotherapy modulus, the exam is written and consists of 30 multiple choice questions (1 right, 3 wrong). You get 1 point for each correct answer and 0 points for each answer not given. To pass the test, the student must correctly answer at least 18 questions.
After correction by the professors, the results are communicated to the students through the unimi portal.
