Objectives

GENETICS
The student must learn the basic knowledge of human and medical genetics, with particular reference to gene, chromosomal and multifactorial diseases applicable to medical genetics. He must also acquire the basics of genetic counseling and genetic engineering.
The student must acquire the basic knowledge required for the genealogy evaluation, the analysis of transmission patterns useful for the diagnosis and the formulation of individual and reproductive risk prognosis. It must also acquire those skills that are indispensable for an appropriate approach to the patient suffering from genetic diseases.

Prerequisites

Passing of the exams listed here: Human Anatomy, Human Phyisiology, General Pathology, Laboratory Medicine, Internal Medicine I, Pharmacology

Teaching Methods

Didactical interactive method applied by the professor:
during the lessons the teacher will encourage the dialogue in order to achieve understanding of the topics covered, using also the support of computer media and video projection

Verification of learning

Interview; The examination will focus on and verify:

- the acquisition of the knowledge and understanding of the proceedings
- the knowledge of the medical and disciplinary language
- the ability to relate concepts and knowledge
- the expressive skills

The test will be evaluated with a score out of thirty
