Gross Anatomy I-II
The first three semesters are dedicated to teaching anatomy.
The study of the body is approached from the descriptive, morphological and functional points of view. The theoretical lectures are an in-depth study of the parts of the body to be further explored by disecting cadavers (2 students per body). During dissections, the students team up and are guided by professors to learn to recognise structures and to correlate morphology and function.
Laboratory: Departments of Anatomy lead by the Dean Prof. Dr. M. Ifrim offers students and professors all necessary facilities at this accredited foreign medical school. No more than eight students per group are assigned to each instructor. At the end of each course the students are evaluated and required to demonstrate the knowledge acquired in their work with the cadaver through 3 kinds of examinations: practical, written and oral.
Our biochemistry program covers all topics that are fundamental and important to the study of biochemical phenomena. This includes: chemical mechanisms of biochemical reactions, biosynthesis, the utilization and degradation of major constituents present in organisms to help explain common disease. Metabolic pathways, enzymatic structures, carbohydrates, lipids, vitamins, their role in the body and metabolic processes. Additionally, genetic aspects of metabolism, DNA and RNA structure among others.
Embryology (Gentical Anatomy)
Cover the whole process of embryological and fetal development. This course comprises of Gametogenesis, fertilization and formation of the placenta. The origin and formation of the organs and systems is studied in minute detail. Knowledge acquired in the process will allow the student to understand the most frequent congenital deviations and malformations.
This subject allows the student to acquire a sound knowledge regarding the aspects and functions of the primary tissues and their specialization and to know the different tissues and their specialization and to know the different tissues that compose the systems and organs. This knowledge will serve as a basis in understanding the modifications these tissues will undergo during disease processes. The program is divided into two parts. The first part comprises the study of the cells and primary tissues, including techniques for histological study of organs and systems.
Laboratory: The different tissues will be identified in the laboratory using audiovisuals and microscopy. This material will be provided to each student, so that under supervision he/she may objectively study tissues of the human body.
Biostatistics, epidemiology and prevented medicine
These are three independant courses each linked to the other at this foreign medical school, with the common objective of providing the vital tools understanding the areas of public health. This programme includes statistical calculations applicable to the variables of health, preventive medicine and general and specific epidemiological data such as the health issues in the XXI Century.
Our physiology program is dedicated to teaching the normal functions of the human body integrating biochemical, embryolgical and neuroscientific principles. It gives the students a general vision of the most important facts and theories in the field of human physiology. It teaches the biological fundamentals of the different body functions, integrating them into a holistic viewpoint. It also emphasizes that the student learn the specific function of an organ to understand the possible repercussions resulting from an organic dysfunction, using such knowledge as preamble for the study of Pathophysiology and Therapeutics.
Laboratory: During the course of the practises, demonstrative experiments are conducted showing the physiolgical principles. Research animals are used with modern instruments such as physiographs, kymographs, stimulators, simulators, in addition to physiology research center the faculty held, the student will get this knowledge on how to approach research subjects.
The anatomic and topographic study of the central nervous system is included in the anatomic study of the remaining systems and structures so that the student may gain solid and detailed knowledge of this structure. As with the remaining anatomies, practices are conducted on cadavers and specimens that serve as models to reaffirm knowledge of the subject.
This course's general objective is to teach students to differentiate among the number of known parasites, fundamental mechanisms in the parasite-host relation and defense mechanisms. In addition, it includes the study of the physiological mechanisms of the different parasites and their relationship with the pathological processes. Among the group of parasites studied we find the protozoa, helminthes and anthropods. Emphasis is also placed on the epidemiological, symptomatological, pathogenesis, diagnosis and therapeutic application.
