The student must demonstrate mastery of the specific terminology for understanding and communication in a clinical work context.
Course syllabus and organization

Sezione: Bosisio Parini

Responsible
During the emergency period the lessons will be held in compliance with the University indications on social distancing; they will be held both in presence and remotely, in a synchronous way through the Microsoft Teams platform; the didactic material will be available on the platform itself also subsequently.

The program and reference material will not change.

The exam will take place orally according to the procedures described in the dedicated section of the teaching sheet.
Prerequisites for admission
Basic knowledge of chemistry, biochemistry, pathology and human physiology.
Assessment methods and Criteria
Written test with open or multiple choice questions and oral exam.
