Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria The UC comprises theoretical-practical and laboratory practical classes.
The theoretical-practical classes are organized combining two teaching methodologies: - lectures (supported by slides) and analysis and definition of therapeutic strategies for the resolution of clinical cases, solved and discussed among students.
The laboratory practical classes are structured in two moments: - the first dedicated to practical work on optometric consultations, which aims to improve clinical judgment in data analysis and diagnosis, - the second on the development of practical skills in therapeutic application, from the optical treatment to visual therapy techniques.
The assessment consists of an individual written test, individual assignments and a final report of practical classes, with presentation and oral defense
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
