Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

At the end of the course, students should demonstrate  

a robust knowledge and competence about:   the principles of chemo-antiobiotic therapy; the different classes of antibiotics and chemotherapeutic agents; their therapeutic use in relation to type of the infection/infestion or of the type of tumor. (Knowledge and understanding);

-the scientific background needed to evaluate and solve the problems regarding the general principles, use and prescription of the classes the chemo-antibiotic agents in a professional setting. (Applying knowledge patience and understanding)

-critical and competent assessment capacity: i.e. the ability to integrate their own knowledge and make judgments in theoretical situations or complex practices with regard to the issues typical of the discipline,  (Making judgments)

- the ability to communicate the acquired knowledge in general and systematic chemo-antibiotic therapy in a clear, essential and scientifically correct shape (Communication);
