AIMS AND CONTENT

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The Anatomy of the Stomatognathic Apparatus module aims to provide the student with the main concepts and information needed to understand the organization, morphology, microscopic structure and function of the various structures that make up the Stomatognathic Apparatus. Particular emphasis will be given to the description of the splanchnocranium, the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), associated muscle structures, the dentition, and the mucosa of the oral cavity.

Upon completion of the module, the student is expected to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the above list.

TEACHING METHODS

The teaching activity planned for the course will consist of face-to-face lectures, during which, with the use of visual aids, all the topics for which knowledge is required at the time of the final assessment will be explained and discussed with students.

 

Students with valid certifications for Specific Learning Disorders (SLDs), disabilities or other educational needs are invited to contact the lecturer and the School/Departmental Disability Liaison at the beginning of the course to agree on possible teaching arrangements that, while respecting the teaching objectives, take into account individual learning patterns.
