Prerequisites for admission
No prior knowledge required
Teaching methods
Starting from the lectures, theoretical knowledge becomes experiential with the guided internship activities through the daily support of tutors in the eye clinic. Exercises, seminars, simulations, group work, preparation of papers and / or research are planned , analysis of clinical cases
Teaching Resources
The preparation is based on the slides provided by the teacher an available on the Ariel website and on the raccomended books
GP Paliaga : I Vizi di refrazione
Assessment methods and Criteria
Extensive clinical training will be performed from October to September.
Through "knowledge","know-how" and "knowing-how to be" will be assesed the learnig outcomes.The final judgement will be expressed in thirtieth based on the average of three evaluation sheet
