    OVERVIEW

    Cognitive learning of the pathological bases of the most common diseases with particular reference to those of the head-neck district. Learning of the morphological pictures of the most common neoplastic and inflammatory diseases of many organs and of the contribution of pathological anatomy to their diagnosis.

    AIMS AND CONTENT

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

    Systematic training in the field of pathological anatomy: damage mechanisms and clinico-pathological correlations. Systematic training in the field of pathological anatomy of the oral cavity; notions of pathological anatomy relative to other organs.

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    Provide students with general knowledge about the morphological pictures that are associated with major human diseases. Provide detailed knowledge of the pathogenesis and histo-cytopathological aspects of head and neck disease. The student must also be able to define the role of histological, cytological and molecular investigations in the diagnostic definition of these diseases.

    PREREQUISITES

    Knowledge of normal human anatomy with particular emphasis on the cervico-facial district.

    Knowledge of normal histological aspects with particular reference to the cervico-facial and digestive tract

    TEACHING METHODS

    Classroom lessons with slide show and slide seminars

    EXAM DESCRIPTION

    Oral examination

    ASSESSMENT METHODS

    The oral examination will verify the ability to describe the pathologies covered in the course and the contribution of histo-cytopathology to the diagnosis of diseases. The correct use of the specialized lexicon and the critical reasoning ability will also be considered.
