Corso di studio
MEDICINA E CHIRURGIA (IN LINGUA INGLESE)
Secondo Semestre (01/03/2022 - 03/06/2022)
The student should know general Pathology and Anatomy.
The Plastic Surgery body of knowledge is founded on solid biological and anatomical bases and involves a huge variety of clinical scenarios the health professional has to face in her/his everyday practice. The scope of the course is to build a solid knowledge that would allow the health professional to recognize and understand the wide spectrum of pathologies that require the Plastic Surgery expertise.

The new course organization is based upon a solid pact between teachers and students and is founded on the mutually responsible interpretation of the University Credit, the unit of measurement of work students and teachers are required to undertake: teachers and students therefore actively work together for a common objective. The new on-line approach through the KIRO website provides the theoretical bases of the course.
The students are expected to study the topic prior to the lesson as the latter is conceived as an interactive development of the students' knowledge. Therefore, the University Credit starts with the students' contribution (individual preliminary study) and is then followed by the teacher's one (the interactive lesson).
