    The final course examination consists of a written and an oral session.

    The main purpose of the final course examination is testing the understanding of the main physiopathological elements of the endocrine system and the knowledge of the main endocrine diseases from a pediatric nurse point of view. 

    ASSESSMENT METHODS

    Through the exposition of the topics discussed by the learner, the teacher may have a picture on the level of compression of the topics themselves, on the level of culture, on the capacity of exposure and on the interest raised.

    Obviously, the primary goal is to evaluate whether the learner has understood and internalized the lessons learned above all in terms of diagnosis and therapy of the most important pediatric diseases
