Organisational remarks and main changes to the course

The whole learning takes an integrated sequential approach. The teaching aims to provide analytical tools allowing integration within the framework of pathology. It is strongly recommended that you re-read the slides after the lesson to reinforce the message of the lesson. All the slides are deposited and are part of the material. Some slides not seen during the lessons help to reinforce the key messages.
