Teaching methodology will be mainly based on lectures, seminars and practical sessions.
Students are required to read assigned documentation before lectures and seminars. Lectures will be used by the teachers to stress and clarify some difficult or interesting points from the corresponding lesson, previously prepared by the student.
Seminars will be mainly dedicated to presentations given by specialists in the subject and to interactive discussion with the students, presentation and evaluation of homework.
Grading will be based on continuous evaluation (including short-exams, homework, group essays, practical sessions, and student participation in class and Aula Global).
Attendance to lectures, short-exams or submission of possible homework is not compulsory. However, failure to attend any exam or submit the exercises before the deadline will result in a grade of 0 in the corresponding exercise and will influence the final continuous evaluation score.
The practical sessions may consist on laboratory work or visits to research or clinical centers. A laboratory report will be required for each of them. The attendance to 80% of practical sessions is mandatory. Failure to hand in the laboratory reports on time or unjustified lack of attendance will result in 0 marking for that practice session.
