AIMS AND CONTENT

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course is divided into several parts that concern
• The techniques used in histopathology, cytopathology, immunochemistry, in situ hybridization and molecular pathology.
• The indications and purposes of the autopsy.
• The systematic pathology of the various organs and systems.
• Correlations between macro and microscopic lesions and clinical pictures.
• For neoplastic pathology, prognostic and predictive factors of therapeutic response.
• Biopsy and cytopathology indications.
• The meaning and value of microscopic and molecular findings in the definition of various diseases.
• The course also includes a professional part in which cases of diagnostics are analyzed, highlighting how to fill out a request for an anatomopathological examination and how to interpret a report. This part also includes the microscopic discussion of clinical-pathological cases.

EXAMS

EXAM DESCRIPTION

Partial “ongoing” verification of topics covered in 3rd year, 2nd semester at the end of the 3rd year.

The exam of the course of Pathological Anatomy and Clinical Correlations at the end of 4th year also includes the verification of topics treated in the 4th year - 1st semester.

ASSESSMENT METHODS

ORAL EXAMINATION: Each candidate is offered 4 topics of oncological and non-oncological nature. After the submission of the arguments, the candidate is given a variable time (about 20 ') to arrange his own presentation even by producing written notes. After this first stage, an oral assessment is held with at least two professors.
The final evaluation also takes into account the outcome of the previously conducted test on the topics covered during the third year - II semester.
