Avaluació i qualificació

Activitats d'avaluació:

Descripció de l'activitat Avaluació de l'activitat %
Interactive class room sessions using audio-visual aids. Class attendance and participation 10
Final Exam Please read Students Guide 70
Seminars (oral presentation) The presentations are evaluated by the teacher and by the students from the audience, according to the criteria indicated on the Seminar Evaluation Form. The average of the teacher constitutes 60% of the final mark and the average of the student marks count for 40% of the final grade (taking into account the evaluation made by his/ her own team partners). 20


The semester mark will consist of the following assessment opportunities: One semester test (70% of the final mark) and attendance and participation in practical exercises in class (10% of the final mark), as well as preparing an oral presentation in group (20% of the final mark).
The exam will consist of multiple choice questions, one open question, and identifying structures in given pictures/ skeleton.
Note that for the supplementary examination, the exercises mark is not considered. The mark obtained for the supplementary examination will therefore become the final mark of the semester. The scope and general format of the supplementary examination will be different to that of the examination.

The exercises developed in class will consist of case study, group discussions, role-plays and simulation exercises. Class participation will be taken into account. Students who participate regularly in class discussions and show evidence of preparation may have their grade raised if they are reasonably close to the next grade level (e.g. a final average of 8.9 out of 10 may be raised to a 9). Students who do not participate will not have their grade raised. Students who miss numerous classes, are chronically tardy, or engage in disruptive behaviors may have their grade lowered. Disruptive behaviors include: leaving class once the session has started, talking out of turn, and having one’s cell phone ring. Note: Students who miss class for a serious and compelling reason should let the instructor know in a timely manner (preferably no later than the date of the missed class) if they want consideration for an excused absence.


Success in anatomy comes from knowing the terminology, the three-dimensional visualization of the structure(s) and using that knowledge in solving problems. The discipline of anatomy is usually studied in a dual approach:

• Regional approach - description of structures regionally and their relationships to each other (back, thorax,abdomen, pelvis, perineum, neck, head, upper limb, lower limb)
• Systemic approach - description of the major systems of the body – musculoskeletal, nervous cardiovascular,lymphatic, digestive, respiratory, endocrine, urinary and reproductive.

The Anatomy I course is organized mostly around a regional approach to anatomy, but time is taken throughout the course to review information from a systemic standpoint because true understanding requires that both approaches are used.
