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, thyroid, parathyroid and suprarenal glands. Cortex, neural centers and their pathways

Bridging Courses

Cell Biology (It is strongly recommended to take the Cell Biology exam first).

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 material on the teaching website (blended learning-Moodle) with dedicated access

There will be a short exercise (not mandatory), based on interactive links of histological and anatomical atlases and/or a brief illustration and discussion of a recent publication (concerning the Course and the Specific Study Path)

In these activities, the Subject Expert for this Course can be of support.


Didactics, Attendance, Course Books and Assessment

Didactics

Lectures and online teaching material (Moodle). In addition, there will be an exercise on the use of interactive links of histological and anatomical atlases.

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

Attendance

There is no obligation to attend but it is strongly recommended for a correct and effective learning of the different arguments of the Course

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: Tissue Biology. Colombo-Olmo Edi. Ermes, Milan

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.

Assessment

The assessment of profit is aimed at verifying the level of knowledge of the topics covered in the course and the ability to reason that highlights the ability to connect structure and function in the different biological components of the Organism. The verification of the level of learning can also be carried out during the course of the lectures using a series of multiple choice tests related to the topics covered in the lessons (Knowledge test, reserved for attending students and usable for the exam)

• The final exam consists of an oral interview of about 25-30 minutes on the various topics covered in the course, to verify the level of knowledge achieved by the student in relation to the training objectives previously indicated.

 The answers are judged on the basis of the knowledge of the subject, the expository capacity and the language used as correct and appropriate scientific terminology, and serve to evaluate the student's reasoning and synthesis skills. Attention will be paid to students with Specific Learning Disorder.

• 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 evaluation is expressed in thirtieths (minimum 18) consisting of the average of the marks obtained.

Additional Information for Non-Attending Students

Didactics

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.
