Learning activities and teaching methods
Lecture, Dialogic Lecture (Discussion, Dialog, Brainstorming), Observation, Demonstration, Projection (static, dynamic)
Learning outcomes
Contents of the second part comprise the histology and embryology of the orofacial region and the digestive system. The microscopic anatomy and embryology of other systems will be discussed in reduced form according to requirements of the subject.
The knowledge of the second part, particularly of the orofacial region, is fundamental for the further study of both preclinical (oral pathology), and clinical (i.g. oral and maxillofacial surgery, dentistry) disciplines.
