    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    General learning outcomes.
    1. Know the organization of an Anatomic Pathology Laboratory.
    2. Know the diagnostic activities and workflow of an Anatomic Pathology Laboratory.
    3. Know the techiniques for histological sample preparation.

    Specific learning outcomes
    1- Sampling and verification of the cyto-histological material, control of compliance of the request and preparation of the sample for the next stage;.
    2- Management of the first part of the Histological analytical phase through the use of appropriate methods and technologies (setting and use of Histological / Cytological Processors) in compliance with the recommendations and quality requirements adopted by the laboratory.
    3- Management of the diagnostic process in compliance with the quality system to actively participate in the development of systems for checking the validity of tests and laboratory analyzes. 
    4- Knowledge of the disciplinary, ethical and deontological principles of the laboratory technician profession in the assistance situations envisaged by the training project and in relation to the responsibilities required by the training level.
    5- Definition of decisions in line with the legal, ethical and deontological dimensions that regulate healthcare organization and professional responsibility.
    6- Organization of laboratory diagnostics activities through the definition of priorities, the appropriate use of available resources, delegating the activities of competence to collaborators, ensuring continuity and quality of care.

    EXAMS

    EXAM DESCRIPTION

    Exam is carried out as an oral interview. 30 triplets of mixed questions have previously been prepared concerning technical topics of histology, cytology and general histological pathology topics. In practice, each sector of the educational program was separated into question and subsequently the questions were randomly divided into triplets.Each triplet has been ordered with progressive numbering. During the appeal, an alphabetical letter is extracted which, after placing the candidates in alphabetical order, marks the beginning of the examination tests. Each candidate, at the time of the exam, receives a typewritten sheet bearing a triplet of questions; the first candidate to start the exam is the one whose surname initial corresponds to the letter extracted. The candidate has 15 minutes to read the questions and prepare a lineup of answers. At the end of the time the candidate can decide to withdraw (if he has verified that he is not sufficiently prepared) or take the oral exam. The exam is carried out separately by three teachers, each of whom asks about a question of the triplet prepared. At the end of the three questions, the teachers consult each other and define the average grade that the candidate can obviously accept or reject.

    ASSESSMENT METHODS

    The exam will allow to verify the achievement of the expected learning outcomes: ability to apply knowledge through the description of the solution of a problem and communication skills, through oral examination, the skills acquired according to the scheme that has been supported in the program each topic dealt with.

    For each topic, it is a question of verifying, as scheduled, the level of knowledge, the type of competence required and the skill necessary to deal with the specific topic. Ultimately the candidate must be able to demonstrate the achievement of the strategic purpose in terms of knowing, knowing how to do, knowing how to be.
