Objectives of Programme's Learning Outcomes

  • Understand, describe, analyse and prioritise biological phenomena
    • Understand basic scientific knowledge and be able to use it
    • Understand the expression of biological realities in absolute or relative terms, the orders of magnitude, proportions and probability
    • Abstract, understand and apply mathematical translations of the main laws and biological phenomena
    • Understand and use different graphical representations of numerical values and their relationships
    • Perceive spatial distribution, and understand two- and three-dimensional representations and interconvert them
    • Understand the chronology of a phenomenon and master the time scales and their representations
  • Control the molecular, morphological and functional approaches of normal and pathological conditions
    • Understand the learning of physiological and pharmacological reasoning
    • Integrate concepts from different approaches/disciplines in a complex biomedical problem
    • Explain how molecular, morphological and functional modifications constitute pathological states and vice versa
  • Demonstrate developed interpersonal skills
    • Use a rich vocabulary linking concepts and words accurately
    • Adapt lexical and syntactic choices in communication register (everyday language, medical language or scientific terminology)

Learning Outcomes of UE

Students will master the functioning of 3 major systems and their integration in the human being: the cardiovascular, respiratory and urinary systems. After normal functioning, malfunction of organs will be considered. The final goal is to enable students to understand the functional consequences of a disorder or of its treatment.

Content of UE

Systems will be studied separately and theoretical notions will be integrated during practical work.

Prior Experience

General physiology.
