    Evaluation methods

    Evaluation of student proficiency is based on oral test (viva voce). The oral exam covers all the aspects of the theory of pharmacology. The questions will be as specific to evaluate the basic knowledge of the topic. The student should be able to discuss on the topic and be able to connect and analyze the different subjects. This means that the student must know the key steps of basic pharmacology, the most relevant for the therapy. Moreover, the student must have a deep knowledge of the most common therapies being able to connect the drugs with diseases. In order to test the acquisition of this ability the student will be asked to solve simple clinical therapeutic oriented problem, e.g recognize a possible drug interaction, the possible adverse reactions and their clinical manifestation. The final grade is expressed in 30/30 were 18 represents the minimum and 30 the maximum and it is established during the oral exam.
