Objectives

It is appropriate to justify why both sub-courses are included in the program.

Partial course unit histology theory
This sub-course is required for the professional title of “Medical laboratory technologist (MLT) ”(RD june,2 1993).
For the pharmaceutical and biological technologist this sub-course is important in research centers, where samples of human and animal origin can be used (FBT)
The purpose of this sub-course is to build a certain ready-to-use knowledge and acquire insight in the field of tissues of humans (and mammals), and in the relationship between the structure and functioning of the tissue.

Partial course unit histology practice
This sub-course is required for the professional title of “Medical laboratory Technologist (MLT)”(RD, june 2, 1993).
For the pharmaceutical and biological technologist this sub-course is important in research centers, where samples of human and animal origin can be used (FBT)
The purpose of this sub-course is that the student acquires knowledge, skills and an appropriate attitude related to tissues and tissue treatment, to adequatly participate in subsequent courses.
Particular attention is paid to the treatment of a biopsy, where it is necessary that the student itself makes the preparations, colors these, and evaluates the colored sections with a microscope.

Contents

Partial course unit histology theory:
This sub-course consist of the following parts:
Cytology, thematic structure.

Laboratory techniques for the detection of pathological conditions of the cell (with the light-and electron microscopic demonstrable changes), detection of necrosis and degeneration in cell cultures and tissue cultures.
Histology, thematic structure (normal structure and pathological structures for comparison)
Epithelia
Support tissues
Muscle tissues
Gastrointestinal tract
Pancreas
Liver
Female reproductive system
Nervous system
Lungs
Reins
The theory is also demonstrated in the lab where possible.

Partial course unit histology practice:
This sub-course consists of the following components:
Microscopic examination of various stained sections of the in theory discussed tissues.
Cutting, coloring (routine HE staining) and evaluating in paraffin embedded biopsies

Evaluation

Examination methods in case of periodic evaluation during the first examination period
Partial course unit histology theory
Written examination without course material (100% of the marks)

Partial course unit histology practicum
Periodic evaluation: Written examination without course material, questions intended for standardized answers and open ended questions (40% of the marks)
Non-periodic evaluation (60% of the marks): reports, process and product evaluation
Presence during lessons is necessary

Cf. EER HoGhent (2018- 2019) and EER -Faculty Education, Health and Social Work (2018- 2019)

Examination methods in case of periodic evaluation during the second examination period
Partial course unit histology theory
An analogous written exam is organized during the resits (100% of the marks)
Partial course unit histology practicum
An analogous written exam is organized during the resits (40% of the marks)
The results of the non-periodic evaluation of the first evaluation period are retained

Cf. EER HoGhent (2018- 2019) and EER -Faculty Education, Health and Social Work (2018- 2019)

If the calculated weighted score of the composed course unit is more than 9 out of 20 and there is a partial course with a score of less than 8 out of 20, the student will not receive the calculated weighted score for the composed course, but the exam score will automatically be 9 out of 20
