The student has to demonstrate the understanding of the human body structures organization, both at a macroscopic and microscopic level, and the topographic relations between these stuctures in line with histology and physiology with particular regards to the ear.
The course of Physiology aims to provide students with the information on the functioning of the human nervous systems. It will provide the foundation for understanding the functioning of living beings focusing on the structure-function relationships, their dynamic integration and the general mechanisms of functional control in normal conditions.
The aim of general pathology course is to provide the basis for understanding the pathological mechanism involved in development of human diseases. During the course, the causes of diseases (etiology), the mechanism by which the etiological agents cause pathological condition (pathogenesis) will be discussed. Finally, will be elucidated the molecular and cellular mechanisms that allow the organism to counteract the effects of pathogens and other harmful agents.
Teaching takes place in frontal teaching methods with possible seminars that involve the active participation of learners.
The teaching will be carried out through the provision of classroom teaching lessons.
