The main objective of this subject is to introduce to the student in the practice clinical and in the study of the operation of the body human sick. Disorders that occur in the body as a result of alterations in the physiology of each of the bodies, equipment and systems will be studied. At the end of the course the student must have acquired the following knowledge:
Competencies and learning outcomes

- Establish the diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment, applying principles based on the best information available and under conditions of clinical safety.
- Indicate the most appropriate therapy for the most prevalent acute and chronic processes, as well as for patients in terminal stages.
- Raise and propose appropriate preventive measures for each clinical situation.
- Acquire appropriate clinical experience in hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare institutions, under supervision, as well as basic knowledge of patient-centered health management and the appropriate use of tests, medications, and other health system resources.
- Know how to use information and communication technologies in clinical, therapeutic, preventive, and research activities.
- Perform functional tests, determine vital parameters, and interpret them.

Methodology and grading
- Case studies: Learning through the analysis of actual or simulated cases in order to interpret and resolve them by employing various alternative solution procedures.
- Cooperative learning: Develop active learning through cooperative working strategies among students and promote shared responsibility to reach group goals.
- Solving exercises and problems: Exercise, test, and apply previous knowledge through routine repetition.
- ASSESSMENT OF THE MATTER
Exam 70%, continuous assessment (workshops, clinical cases, tasks and practices/portfolio) 30%
ASSESSMENT OF THE COURSE
Assessment methods and percentage in the final qualification
1. Theoretical exam up to 70%
2 Workshops, tasks and seminars: 15%
3 Practices, portfolio and practical exam: 15%
System and criteria of evaluation of the subject
Test exam (60%) (with 5 possible answers and only 1 valid answer; each wrong answer deducts 0.25). Questions short/clinical cases (40%). Total (70%)
30% continuous assessment: includes practices, work, resolution and presentation of clinical cases, workshops and portfolio (30%)
On internships, assistance is considered, as motivation, interest, knowledge, skills, clinical reasoning, communication, professionalism, and attitudes. Assistance is valued in workshops, as interest and knowledge. Participation, preparation and resolution of clinical cases is compulsory and knowledge, clinical reasoning and participation is valued.
The qualification of the continuous assessment obtained from the regular call will remain in the extraordinary call and successive provided that it has passed to 3rd degree.
The level of passed stands at 50% of the maximum rating possible, for the theoretical exam and continuous assessment. This cutoff point of past applies both in the regular call as extraordinary.
In the December extraordinary exams, test and short questions and clinical cases will be replaced by a review of 15 short questions which will include clinical cases.
