Learning objectives
- Knowing elements of general pathology and general pathophysiology
- Knowing elements of cardiovascular and respiratory physiopathology
- Developing knowledge to analyze the causes (etiology) and mechanisms (pathogenesis) that contribute to the onset of the diseases
- Knowing elements of diagnostic-clinical pathology and laboratory methodology in cytology, cytopathology, immunohematology and genetic pathology
- Understanding the diagnostic laboratory approach to the main pathological conditions
- Knowing the diagnostic-clinical aspects in reproductive medicine
Expected learning outcomes
The course aims to provide the necessary knowledge for understanding the causes of human diseases and the fundamental pathogenetic mechanisms at the cell and tissue levels. At the end of the course the students will have a good knowledge of aetiology and pathogenesis with particular reference to the main genetic diseases, the various forms of the inflammatory process, the damage, the main alterations of the immune system, and the tumors. The course gives the knowledge of clinical biomarkers use in clinical practice. The students will have the acquaintance of the main biomarkers currently approved in Laboratory Medicine to discriminate the health state than a pathological status and its development. The students will also have learned the main diagnostic tools and clinical exams used to identify the health state from prenatal phase to the childhood.
Course syllabus and organization

Sezione: Bosisio Parini

Responsible
During the emergency period, lessons will take place remotely synchronously on the Microsoft Teams platform with some events in physical presence and at the same time at distance in synchronous mode. In any case, students will be able to access the teaching material even remotely on the ARIEL platform.
The program and reference material will not change.
The examination will consist of a written test. As reported in the Rector's decree of 31 July 2020 currently in force, the written test will take place in presence, in compliance with the safety regulations in force, guaranteeing to the international students, to the students residing outside the region as well as the students with serious illnesses, the opportunity to take the remote examination, even on a different date.
Prerequisites for admission
The prerequisites consist of physiology, anatomical, histological, biochemical and biological knowledge that are study subject of the first year of the course.
Assessment methods and Criteria
The examination consists of a written test with multiple choice questions aimed at assessing the student's knowledge of the different topics covered.
The evaluation is expressed in thirtieths and the result is communicated after the conclusion of the test.
