Learning outcomes This UC aims to develop a functional understanding of the morphology and functioning of organs of the endocrine-metabolic, blood and cardiocirculatory, respiratory, digestive, excretory, skin and attachment systems as an explanatory basis for human behaviour and behaviour, as well as an understanding of the development process
- Identifies the anatomical aspects of the metabolic and endocrine systems, and understands the physiology of its functioning
- Identifies anatomical aspects of blood and cardiocirculatory and respiratory systems and understands the physiology of its functioning
- Identifies the anatomical aspects of the digestive system and understands the physiology of its functioning
- Identifies the anatomical aspects of the urinary system and understands the physiology of its functioning
- Demonstrates an understanding of the importance of various systems in maintaining body temperature
- Demonstrates a basic understanding of the development and aging process

Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria The teaching-learning process is organized in the form of lectures and theoretical-practical classes. In the lectures, the contents are developed through the analysis and discussion of papers/slides/chapters of books. Theoretical and practical lessons are intended to develop the capacities of students on the basis of concrete problems and through the application of knowledge in laboratory activities, using models and simulation. The evaluation of theoretical componente, uses written tests with multiple-choice questions, the practical evaluation of functional understanding of anatomy and physiology knowledge is obtained through a group work, and a integrated practice examination.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
