Learning Objectives

The course is designed to provide basic knowledge of the organization of the human organism with special emphasis on the composition, structure and function of the various organs and apparatuses, with emphasis on the gastroenteric system, Pancreas and Liver and functional references to the mechanisms of digestion. The course will cover the relevant histological topics in such a way as to allow the student an organic learning of the subject.  This course would also like to provide the student, hints of the scientific method that led to the understanding of the structures and mechanisms described.

Program

1) Histology: lining and glandular epithelia, properly so called and supporting connective tissue , muscle tissue, blood, immune system and lymphoid organs, nervous tissue

2) Anatomy: Circulatory system: heart structure, major blood vessels and their major branches in the systemic and pulmonary circulation. Portal circulation. Lymphatic circulation and its involvement in the enteric function.  Respiratory system: structure of the bronchial tree and lungs. Digestive system: detailed structural organisation of the different stations as well as the liver-pancreatic organ.   the kidney: nephron and iuhtaglomerula apparatus. 6) endocrine system: hypophysis,epiphysis, thyroid, parathyroid and suprarenal glands. Cortex, neural centers and their pathways

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

Knowledge and understanding

The student should show mastery of knowledge related to: tissue organization and anatomical basics necessary for a proper understanding of the functioning of the human organism with special emphasis on phenomena related to nutrition and growth of the organism.

Ability to apply knowledge and understanding.

The student should show that he/she has acquired skills, tools and conscious autonomy of judgment in relation to the analysis of tissues and demonstrate understanding of the basis of functioning of organs and apparatuses by identifying their main task in maintaining organismic homeostasis.

Autonomy of judgment.

The student should show possession of the ability to use the knowledge acquired by demonstrating reasoning according to the specific logic of the discipline. He/she should be able to extract and synthesize relevant information related to the organ under study and, ultimately, to identify functional correlations between multiple organs.

Communication skills

The student will have to demonstrate the ability to relate, in a precise and comprehensive manner, his or her knowledge to people already knowledgeable in the subject, as well as to demonstrate synthesis skills and the ability to communicate in such a way as to make the topics of the subject accessible to a wider audience by adopting appropriate and precise terminology.

Learning skills

The student will be expected to demonstrate the ability to discuss the program topics with examples or parallels independently, based on what he or she has learned from lectures and what he or she has learned using supplementary or independently sourced sources.

Teaching Material

The teaching material prepared by the lecturer in addition to recommended textbooks (such as for instance slides, lecture notes, exercises, bibliography) and communications from the lecturer specific to the course can be found inside the Moodle platform › blended.uniurb.it

Supporting Activities

Teaching materials on the faculty website (Moodle) with dedicated access

A short tutorial (not mandatory), based on interactive links of histological and anatomical atlases and/or a brief illlustration and discussion of a recent publication (inherent to the Course and the Specific Study Pathway) is planned

In addition, as described in the "modes of assessment" session, tests (with multiple-choice answers) may be given during the course of lectures to verify learning in progress, reserved for attending students and usable for the purposes of the exam.


Teaching, Attendance, Course Books and Assessment

Teaching

Lectures and online teaching materials (Moodle). In addition, there is a guided exercise regarding the use of interactive links of histological and anatomical atlases.

Innovative teaching methods

Among the innovative widespread practices, the teacher will propose the DEBATE and the PROBLEM-BASED LEARNING, depending on the most favorable acceptance by students and on the best way to organize the lessons.  Most likely these lessons of innovative teaching should be prepared by means of Moodle blended Platform, giving the possibility to partecipate also to non attending students.

Attendance

There is no mandatory attendance but it is strongly recommended for proper and effective learning of the subject matter

It is strongly recommended to take the Cell Biology exam first since the knowledge acquired is a prerequisite for learning the knowledge related to the teaching of Human Anatomy to the fullest.

Course books

Recommended study texts:

for the part of Anatomy: HUMAN ANATOMY. FUNDAMENTALS. Barbatelli et al. Edi. Ermes, Milan

to deepen the part of Histology / Microscopic Anatomy: Cytology and Histology, Dini L. et al, Idelson-Gnocchi

The slides provided are considered important for the study.  The texts indicated must not be studied in full: the chapters to be studied are those corresponding to the Course Program.

Additional material in English will be provided (scientific publications, links for online tutorials,)

Assessment

The final examination consists of an oral interview (of approximately 25-30 minutes) on the various topics covered in the course, to ascertain what level of knowledge the student has achieved relative to the previously stated educational objectives. The answers are judged on subject knowledge, expository ability and language used as correct and appropriate scientific terminology, and serve to assess the student's ability to reason and synthesize. Tests (multiple-choice) taken during the course of the lectures will also be used for examination purposes.

-The final grade will result from the average of the marks obtained in the two modules (Cell Biology and Human Anatomy) for the total of 12 CFU.

-The grade is expressed in thirtieths (minimum grade 18) consisting of the average of the marks obtained.

Disabilità e DSA

Le studentesse e gli studenti che hanno registrato la certificazione di disabilità o la certificazione di DSA presso l'Ufficio Inclusione e diritto allo studio, possono chiedere di utilizzare le mappe concettuali (per parole chiave) durante la prova di esame.

A tal fine, è necessario inviare le mappe, due settimane prima dell’appello di esame, alla o al docente del corso, che ne verificherà la coerenza con le indicazioni delle linee guida di ateneo e potrà chiederne la modifica.

Additional Information for Non-Attending Students

Teaching

It will be important to access the online teaching material (Moodle). In addition, there will be a short exercise on the use of interactive links of histological and anatomical atlases, guided by the teacher and recommended.

Additional material will be provided in English (scientific publications, links for online exercises). Clarifications and / in-depth analysis (recovery activities, to be carried out also online), can be agreed with the teacher.

Attendance

It is strongly recommended to use the material and study indications prepared in the blended learning platform, in addition to the textbook.
