    Objective ofthe course is to give the student basic knowledge of general surgery useful to understand rehabilitative problems in surgical patients.

    With this aim, most common surgical diseases, principal surgical techniques , as resections and sutures , along with post-operative complications will be addressed.


    The educational objective of the course is to make the student acquire basic and specific theoretical knowledge of the discipline: emergency medicine, intensive medicine, emergency toxicology and homeostatic mechanisms related to acid-base balance. health and inter-disciplinary sciences.


    If the teaching is given in a mixed or remote way, the necessary changes may be introduced with respect to what was previously stated, in order to comply with the program provided and reported in the syllabus.

  • Clinical Pathology

    The course develops skills in the Clinical Pathology aiming to teach the student to apply, evaluate and interpret the laboratory tests used to study of the main diseases of the blood, alterations of the coagulative-fibrinolytic system, changes in liver and kidney function, some endocrinopathies.

    1. Knowledge and understanding: at the end of the course, students will acquire the knowlodge of the main laboratory tests to the study the blood diseases, the coagulative-fibrinolytic system, liver and kidney function alterations andsome endocrinopathies.

    2. Ability to apply knowledge and understanding: once the knowledge of the main laboratory tests has been acquired, the students will be able to evaluate and interpret the aforementioned tests.

    3. Making judgments: through the executions, the students will be able, independently, to apply, evaluate and interpret different laboratory tests.

    4. Communication skills: the student will acquire the necessary communication skills within the main laboratory tests.

    5. Learning skills: the aim of the course is to provide the student with the basic knowledge to autonomously interpret the main laboratory tests.
