Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria The development of contents will be carried out based on a theoretical approach through the presentation of the program contents in digital support, as well as through the transmission of theoretical and practical knowledge using Optometry laboratories. These approaches will be complemented, from an application perspective, with clinical case analysis and problem solving. The student will be evaluated through the performance and presentation of works, as well as through the realization of Optometry consultations in real context.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
