Teaching period

2nd semester


Learning outcomes

  • Study of the systems included in the curriculum, concentrating basically in the central and peripheral nervous system,
  • Comprehension of the circulatory, concentrating in the heart and main artery-veins anatomy,
  • Understanding the respiratory and tracheobronchial tree and the detailed analysis of the basic anatomic unit, the alveolus,
  • Understanding the anatomic position of the digestive, urinary and genital organs and of the glands.


Teaching method

  • Power Point presentations with projector,
  • Interactive sessions between the teacher and the students,
  • Demonstration of the internal organs and the brain with the use of specimens.


Week by week schedule

The theoretical part of Anatomy II is summarised in 60 teaching hours, organised in 30 2-hour sessions (2 sessions per week), in which student attendance is essential.

Assessment of the theoretical part of Anatomy II takes place in the end of the semester and has 2 examination periods. In case somebody fails in the 1st exam, they may take the 2nd. If they fail twice, they have to attend the module/subject again. The examination students take is consisted of open and closed type questions. The final grade of the subject derives from the average of the theoretical and laboratory part and has to be 5 out of 10 or higher. Nevertheless, the students need to achieve 5 out of 10 for each of the parts to consider the subject passed. The examination’s duration is 2 hours. After passing the theoretical and laboratory part, the students are awarded with 8 ECTS credits.
