Learning Outcomes of the Curricular Unit:
Anatomophysiology II aims to provide knowledge bases on the functioning of the systems that constitute the human organism, namely cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, urinary, reproductive and endocrine systems. The study of this subject should allow the student to know the most important aspects of Anatomophysiology to understand fundamental concepts in the area of Nutrition.
Cardiovascular System: Anatomy of the heart. Blood vessels. Pulmonary and systemic circulation. Lymphatic system. Respiratory System: Functions and anatomy. Gas exchange. Transport of blood gases. Digestive System: Anatomy and Physiology. Digestion and absorption. Carbohydrate, protein and lipid metabolism. Hormonal regulation of nutrient use. Urinary System: Anatomy and Physiology. Urine production. Regulation of urine concentration and volume. Reproductive system: Anatomy and physiology of male and female reproductive systems.
Demonstration of the Syllabus Coherence with the Curricular Unit's Objectives:
The construction of the syllabus , with the approach of the morphological and functional aspects of human body , with theoretical , theoretical- practical and practical information of the topics addressed , including the use of appropriate teaching resources, is properly appropriate to the learning process in the discipline of Human Anatomy and Physiology in the curricular fence of course of Nutritional Sciences.
Teaching Methodologies (Including Evaluation):
The teaching methodology relies on the use of didactic resources, such as power point material, and manipulation of anatomical models.
The evaluation of the theoretical/theoretical-practical and practical components will be done separately, and the student must approve both. The final average is constructed with 80% of the theoretical and theoretical-practical component and 20% of the practical component, calculated with 2 decimal places.
2 theory tests will be carried out throughout the semester. The student is " approved " the theoretical rated equal to or higher than 10 .
The minimum percentage of compulsory attendance at theoretical classes is 50 %.
The evaluation will be continuous: 2 moments of written evaluation (8% + 8%) marked by the teacher at the beginning of the semester and written and / or oral moments in the context of the class (4%).
Demonstration of the Coherence between the Teaching Methodologies and the Learning Outcomes:
THEORETICAL LESSONS The teaching methodology centered on the theoretical , practical and theoretical and practical information of the topics addressed , including the use of appropriate teaching resources, is properly adapted to the process of learning the discipline of Human Anatomy and Physiologyin the curricular fence of course of Nutritional Sciences. PRACTICAL CLASSES In the practical classes, the contents that were the subject of information in the theoretical class will be taken up and discussed with the students using a virtual laboratory. Students will manipulate anatomical models and worksheets individually and / or in groups.
