4. COURSE DESCRIPTION AND TEACHING METHODOLOGY

Three hours per week will be devoted to lectures in large group. Practice in smaller groups will be held during an hour each two weeks. In lectures, the basic concepts will be explained. During the lessons in smaller groups, the students will face exercises of diagnosis through the study of clinical cases.

 

The assimilation of theoritical-practical concepts will be evaluated through a final test which will include: 1) Theoretical questions (multiple-choice test and/or short answer questions) and 2) practice (through diagnosis of clinical cases), being the weight in the grades 65% for the first part and 35% for the second one. Both parts must be passed to calculate the average grade. This exam will count a 70% in the final mark. The other 30% will be obtained through controlled activities (20%) and assistance and class participation (10%).

*Note: For the 2019/2020 academic year this subject will have a bilingual group taught in English by Professor Dmitry Davydod of the Research Institute of General Pathology and Pathophysiology of the Russian Academy of Sciences, within the PATIE level 3 program.

 

Students with special educational needs should contact the Student Attention Service (Servicio de Atención y Ayudas al Estudiante) in order to receive the appropriate academic support

5. ASSESSMENT METHODOLOGY

The detailed evaluation of the different sections is as follows:

  1) S1 (attendance and participation: 5% of the final grade). Attendance and participation in class will be accounted for through monitoring records by the professors. These activities aim to evaluate the Learning Outcome R09 and R12.

  2) S2 (theoretical concepts of the subject: 70% of the final grade). In order to pass the subject it is absolutely essential to pass the exams on the basic contents of the subject. These exams will include multiple choice questions and / or short questions (with a weight in section S2 of 65%) and diagnosis of clinical cases (with a weight in section S2 of 35%). With this activity we intend to evaluate the Learning Results R07, R13 and R016.

  3) S3 (completion of cases, works and exercises: 25% of the final grade). By means of the accomplishment and delivery of works, cases or exercises on the practical aspects of the subject the Learning Results R08, R09, R12 and R17 will be evaluated.

  In the Ordinary 2 Call the students will have to make use of the different activities described to pass the subject.

  In the Extraordinary 2 and Ordinary 1 Calls, the marks obtained in the S1 and / or S3 activities will be maintained in the current academic year and in the previous one (only if they are approved and the faculty considers that said activities are similar in content and work of the student to those proposed for the current academic year), respectively. Therefore, the student who has completed them will only have to examine the theoretical contents. Students who have not completed the S1 and / or S3 activities will be able to obtain the maximum grade by taking the exam, since it will contemplate questions and assumptions to reach the maximum grade.

The voluntary participation in empirical studies managed by the teachers of the subject will be compensated with an extra bonus of 0.5 as maximum, which will be added to the grade obtained. Those students who do not want to participate in these studies may opt for this bonus by making a summary of a book or scientific articles on the subject, which will be selected by the professor.

  This bonus can not be used to pass the subject.
