The assessment of learning is carried out by an oral examination.
To pass the exam, the student must demonstrate that he / she possesses a detailed knowledge of normal macroscopic and microscopic anatomy, notions of physiology of organs and apparatuses, and basic knowledge of the pathologies covered by the course.
In particular, for each pathology the student must demonstrate knowledge of: epidemiology, pathogenic mechanisms, main macroscopic and histological characteristics of the lesions, prognostic and predictive factors, therapeutic approaches concerning any related biomarkers and prognosis. Pathological classifications will be required in the perspective of a correct therapeutic and prognostic framework.
The student must also demonstrate the ability to perform the necessary reasoning to carry out differential diagnoses in the various fields of human pathology.
The determination of the final score takes therefore into account logical skills and the use of an appropriate language.
