CASTILLO, Beatriz C. et al. Integrated teaching of anatomy and histology in the School of Dentistry, National University of Córdoba, Argentina. FEM (Ed. impresa) [online]. 2015, vol.18, n.4, pp.253-259. ISSN 2014-9840.

Introduction. Professors of Anatomy, Histology and from the pedagogic area formed a team with the objective of designing and carrying out an experience based on integrated teaching (IT) at the School of Dentistry, National University of Córdoba, Argentina. The main purpose was to achieve more integration between the anatomy and histology of the stomatognathic system as well to guide the transference to clinical situations. Material and methods. In 2010 a new experience of IT was designed for its application to all the students and with all the professors, who participated in interdisciplinary meetings tending to content updating, criteria unification, and so on. The students attended four theoretical and practical classes and one practical activity elaborated on the basis of a clinical situation, guided by one professor of Anatomy and another of Histology. During the practical activity the students performed an oral cavity examination and worked in groups so as to answer questions referred to the clinical situation. They evaluated each IT activity, indicating positive aspects as well as those requiring adjustments. The teachers gave their opinions through an anonymous quest. Results. The students remarked that the integrated approaching allowed them a better comprehension and the possibility of relating anatomical and histological contents. They also remarked the class dynamism and illustrations, clear explanations, and the activities based on clinical situations. The professors considered that the IT was a positive, defying and enriching experience that also improved the nexus with colleagues and students. Conclusions. The IT experience allowed to reach the proposed learning objectives for the students and constituted a valuable formative opportunity for the teachers.
