Demonstration of the Syllabus Coherence with the Curricular Unit's Objectives:
The syllabus (CP) were delineated by learning objectives (O) of the 4 modules that compose the unit, in order that the students the acquire knowledge on diseases, limitations and dependence that can result from them , and develop the skills of future physiotherapists in establishing individualized plans for each patient, viewed as a whole, integrated into multidisciplinary teams. In this way:
CP1 - O1 e O2
CP2, CP3, CP4, CP5, CP6 – O3
CP7 - O4
CP8, CP9, CP10, CP11, CP12 – O5
CP13, CP14, CP15 – O6
CP16, CP17, CP18, CP19, CP20 – O7 e O8
Teaching Methodologies (Including Evaluation):
Expository and participatory methodology with slides and varied iconography – X-rays, neuroimaging, videos, photos, schemes – case studies, literature analysis. Students have the opportunity to observe orthopedic surgery at the HE-UFP. In each module the evaluation is continuous, wth one written test with various types of questions, quoted 0-20, the classification may be weighted by attendance, participation and attitude in class. The final evaluation of Pathology III requires a positive weighted average of 4 modules equal to 10 with minimum requirement of partial notes 10 in at least 3 modules; it can be accepted a minimum negative classification of 8 in one module, since the final weighting is 10.
Weighting: Neurology (38%), Orthopedics (38%), Rheumatology and Genito-Urinary and Obstetrics (24%; these modules will be evaluated together). The students who do not achieve the result described above will be subjected to final examination, including assessment components of each module.
Demonstration of the Coherence between the Teaching Methodologies and the Learning Outcomes:
INGLÊS The theoretical-practical classes, characterized by expository methodologies but also the development of more dynamic participatory approach, facilitate the acquisition and the relationship of concepts, as well as the applicability of knowledge within the ambit of physiotherapist performance, particularly in terms of identification, assessment and intervention, promoting the development of skills related to the construction of an adequate and structured reasoning, linked to professional practice. Thus, it is considered that the broad nature of the adopted teaching methodologies, using the presentation, analysis and discussion of issues in the classroom, observation of complementary diagnostic procedures, observation of surgeries, discussion of clinical cases and guidance on critical thinking and research and reading specific literature, is in line with the learning of general practical aspects of the main diseases of different organ systems and is consistent with the objectives set for this course.
