Study plans 2016-2017
- 11 ECTS
Expected learning outcomes
The students should be able to clarify and describe how the human body is organised and how it functions, with added emphasis on skeletal anatomy and topographical anatomy.
The students should be able to clarify and describe microbial structures, growth and metabolism, and also how their excistence can be reduced /eradicated. They should also be able to utilise this knowledge/proficiency to prevent infections.

PBL (Problem Based Learning)
Form(s) of Assessment
Written exam, 4 hours
Form(s) of Assessment (additional text)
Microbiology: digital exam (multiple choice), one hour (10%)
Anatomy and physiology: written exam, four hours (90%).
Each separate exam requires a pass mark.
Alphabetical Scale, A(best) – F (fail)
Internal and external examiner will be used for the marking of the four hours written exam.
An internal examiner will be used for the marking of the one hour digital exam.
Clarification of concepts for the written exam.
An individual test will be given from a selection of questions in anatomy and physiology. This coursework assessment must be approved (pass mark), before the student can take the written four hour anatomy and physiology exam. Further information concerning this test will be given at the beginning of term.
Obligatory attendance is required as stated in the curriculum.
A complete litterature list is available on the NTNU - Gjøvik libraries web page.
