Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria a) Pedagogic methodology centered in the student. The participation of the student in the learning process allows a higher development of his reasoning capabilities, self-learning and self-evaluation.
b) Learning involving the integration of different basic scientific areas and also clinical areas related with pathology.
c) Organization of the learning topics by pedagogic Unites (PU) and performing of continuous evaluation along the year.
d) Learning activities in small groups of students and using convenient resources to achieve self-learning and to have a personalized follow-up along all the process.

Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
