Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

D1 - Knowledge, and understanding. The student will have to learn the basic principles of pharmacokinetics. Above all, he will have to learn the mathematical techniques typical of pharmacokinetics that allow its use for practical purposes. These skills will be assessed through the oral exam.

D2 - Ability to apply knowledge and understanding. The student must be able to use the principles of pharmacokinetics to interpret the behavior of a drug in the patient's body. These skills will be assessed through the oral exam.

D3 - Autonomy of judgment. The student will have to be able to focus attention on the pharmacokinetic models to be used to solve a specific real problem or to interpret a collection of experimental data, that is, he will have to independently understand which pharmacokinetic model to use to solve a problem. These skills will be tested through the oral exam.

D4 - Communication skills. The student must be able to describe the principles and concepts learned during the course expressing themselves clearly, with appropriate terms, and with appropriate examples. This ability will be assessed during the oral exam.

D5 - Learning skills. The student must be able to construct his / her scientific growth path in a critical and autonomous way, being able to correctly use the study material provided by the teacher and the in-depth material that he himself can obtain. These skills, as far as possible, will be stimulated by the teacher by proposing insights; this ability will be assessed through the oral exam and possibly through the optional thesis.

Assessment

The verification of learning, which aims to ascertain the acquisition of the knowledge and skills expected, takes place only through the final exam which consists of an oral test, possibly supplemented by an optional essay.
The oral exam, lasting 20-30 minutes, focuses on all the topics of the course and on the discussion of any in-depth essay.
The final grade, which takes into account the results of the oral exam and any optional essay, is delivered out of thirty and reflects the overall evaluation of the candidate.

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.
