Teaching load distribution between lectures and independent student workLearning anatomy must be done in a continuous way. The work of the student beyond class hours is fundamental to guarantee the success of the learning and to overcome the subject. It proposes an autonomous work of the student of at least 50% of the theoretical and practical class time.
Distribution of creditsThe subject has 9 ECTS. The fact of being a subject with a high teaching load allows to raise participatory classes, where the student is the protagonist of the learning.

Subject's extra information

This is a fundamental subject and is conceived as a practical subject in which the anatomy is deepened with a dynamic and participatory methodology of the student.

During the course different practices are developed between which we emphasize activities in the classroom, classes of palpation, osteotheca classes and classes of dissection of corpse

The University of Lleida informs that, for educational purposes, it will record images that identify the student and other people who participate in the academic activities. The person responsible for the treatment of these images is the University of Lleida (contact details of the representative: General Secretariat. Plaza de Víctor Siurana, 1, 25003 Lleida,; contact details of the data protection delegate: dpd @

These images are only used to teach, evaluate the knowledge of the subject and for educational improvement projects.

The use of the images corresponds to the legal obligation of the UdL to impart and improve university teaching, in accordance with Organic Law 6/2001, of December 21, of universities. The images, once recorded, are kept as a minimum while not prescribing the corresponding actions and claims against the evaluation approved by the teaching staff. They are destroyed in the terms and conditions set forth in the regulations on the conservation and elimination of the administrative documents of the UdL, and the document evaluation tables approved by the Generalitat de Catalunya ( file /).

The UdL will never communicate these data to third parties, except for the cases strictly foreseen in the Law.

Those interested can access their images; request the correction, deletion or portability; Oppose the treatment and request the limitation, by writing to the address </src/compose.php?>. They can also file a complaint addressed to the Catalan Data Protection Authority, through the Electronic Office of the Authority ( or by non-electronic means.

In this subject, the student is the protagonist of the continuous learning throughout the course. During the course, theoretical and practical classes will be combined

The practical classes will be fundamentally palpatory, although practical seminars will also be carried out with classroom exercises, osteotheca sessions and corpse dissection sessions

Attendance to group classes is compulsory to be able to pass the subject

The classes of a large group will be basically descriptive but requesting the participation of the students. Class activities will be performed as a visualization of dissection images to identify muscle and joint structures. Likewise, classroom activities are proposed to facilitate and integrate learning and will have complementary material outside of notes or slides worked in the classroom.

The classes of small group will be devoted essentially to palpation, osteoteca and cadaver dissection. For classes of small group it will be essential to respect the regulations of the different classes such as dissection, osteotheca and palpation. Other activities in the classroom are also plated that allow better learning such as description of bone in osteoteca, explanation of a region for peers and dissection.

For the classes of palpation students will have a list of structures to explore (non-exhaustive list) that will facilitate and guide the matter that is subject to examination.

Development plan

The subject will be developed through master classes where the whole theoretical part of the syllabus and mainly practical seminars will be taught where it will be taught to feel the different structures studied in the theoretical part.


The evaluation of learning will be done as follows:

  1. EVALUATION: The final grade of the subject will consist of 3 evaluation activities:
    • EXAMINATION THEORY: The theoretical and practical knowledge of anatomy, including seminars contents and transversal competences, will be evaluated through a theoretical exam that will count 45% of the final grade. 50-question test, with 5 possible options, of which only 1 is correct. Every 3 wrong questions, subtract one correct.
    • PRACTICAL EXAM: The practical and theoretical knowledge of anatomy, including the contents of the seminars, transversal competences, will be evaluated through an oral exam that will count 45% of the final grade. This exam includes 6 short questions of structures and 1 question about the description of an area. The evaluation procedure will be adapted to the regulations of the UdL and in particular of the FIF, this exam will be supervised by two professors of the subject or it will be recorded, in order to make revisions if necessary.
    • GROUP WORK: This work will consist in the oral presentation of the different anatomical areas, each group will choose an area and they will have to present orally in class. This activity will count 10% of the final grade of the subject. During the presentation group questions will be asked and the teacher will evaluate the quality of the presentation that will mean half of the group work note that will affect all the members of the group equally, the other half will be obtained individually through a test type of all the papers presented, carried out simultaneously with the theory exam and with the same structure but with a number of questions proportional to their weight within the overall mark.

      The final score will come out of the 3 exam marks, average according to the percentage weight in the subject, it is necessary to obtain at least 50% of the maximum possible score globally, although to be able to make the percentage averages necessary to have obtained, at the individual level, at least 45% of the grade in the theoretical exams and 50% in the practical exam.
    • It is scheduled after the first call and it can be done by both the suspended students and those approved with the intention of uploading a grade, but in this case the approved resigns to the first call and will only count the second grade, being able to suspend if in the second call the note is a suspense although in the first one it had approved.
    • In the case of suspending any of the 2 exams (theory or practice) the whole subject is suspended and the student must enroll and take the complete subject. In this case it is not possible to save any notes of the partial exams for other registrations.
  3. Unique evaluation:

Those students who request, in the corresponding terms, may opt for the single evaluation. This evaluation will be by attending the theoretical and practical exams in the first call, on the official dates assigned to them, and with the same scoring rules indicated for the rest of the students.
