Training objectives

The course of Pathology I provides the systematic treatment of the pathological basis of diseases of the kidney and lower urinary tract, of the male genital system, of the respiratory system, of the mediastinum, of the liver, pancreas and biliary tract and of the hemolymphopoietic system.

Knowledge and understanding:
At the end of the course the student will:
- know the basic concepts about morphological and biopathological characteristics related to the main pathological processes of the kidney and lower urinary tract, of the male genital system, of the respiratory system, of the mediastinum, of the liver, pancreas and biliary tract and of the hemolymphopoietic system.
- will be able to understand the clinical pictures related to different pathologies of such organs and to understand pathology reports

Applying knowledge and understanding:
At the end of the course the student will have developed the ability to
- know how to use the pathological data on morphology, immunohistochemistry and molecular biology for an appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic approach to pathology of the kidney and lower urinary tract, of the male genital system, of the respiratory system, of the of the mediastinum, of the liver, pancreas and biliary tract and of the hemolymphopoietic system.
