Prerequisiti e modalità di esame
Modalità di erogazione del corso di insegnamento:
· Lectures
· Case presentation

Modalità di svolgimento dell'esame di profitto:
Student assessment is based on a combination of written and oral examinations.
The written exam is a multiple choice test focused on the topics of all the modules but Neurology, Neurosurgery and Pathology and Mental Health. Only students who successfully pass the written test for all the subjects are allowed to take the oral examination of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Pathology and Mental Health.
The final mark is the weighted average of the marks obtained through the oral examinations.
