Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria Teaching methodologies integrating: practical laboratory classes for practice of clinical procedures, resolution of exercises to exemplify the calculation of vision parameters necessary to clinical practice regarding specific populations and acquisition of the knowledge necessary for writing referral reports to other health professionals; tutorial classes with real patients for supervised application of screening protocols to pediatric and geriatric populations in nurseries and nursing homes; training complemented with self-study. Evaluation using practical tests of clinical procedures for specific populations in laboratory environment and referral reports for other health professionals, regarding pediatric and geriatric patients.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
