Pathology of the larynx of which dysphonies and benign and malignant lesions of the larynx. Methodology: lecturing. Illustrations by slides and films video. III. ORAL AND MAXILLOFACIAL DISEASES - Ex cathedra lectures - Clinical signs are described and well illustrated - Diagnostic approach is detailed, only symptomatic treatments are developed - Prevention of oral diseases is emphasized (oral health)

At the end of this learning unit, the student is able to :

1 I. OPHTHALMOLOGY To acquire adequate information related to ophthalmology in order for the general practioner 1) to easily recognize ocular signs and symptoms related to ocular problems or diseases 2) to be able to elaborate a differential diagnosis and eventually diagnose the ocular problem 3) to inform and guide the patient about his ocular problem 4) to take appropriate therapeutic measures related to his competences The course is well documented by double slide projection with texts including simple, highly specific statements summarizing the available handout and straightforward photos of ocular lesions. The basic ocular examination and ocular anatomy are given before reviewing the different pathologies affecting each ocular tissues and structures. Emphasis on diseases easily recognized by a simple external examination without using sophisticated material. The differential diagnostic approach of ocular signs and symptoms is given through summarizing tables whose the general practioner can later consult during his practice. The "what to do" when an ocular emergency occurs is described with key points for the general practioner. A review of ocular manifestations of systemic diseases allows to connect ophthalmology with other medical fields. II. OTORHINOLARYNGOLOGY To teach with the students of master 3 in medicine the bases of oto-rhino-laryngologic pathology: recall of anatomo-physiology, physiopathological bases, ENT semiology, medical and surgical pathology of ENT sphere. III. ORAL AND MAXILLOFACIAL DISEASES - To give the future GP and MD, elements of etiopathogeny, diagnosis and treatment (mainly symptomatic) of the most frequent oral and maxillofacial diseases - To describe the clinical signs of oral diseases in order to allow the future GP and MD to propose a diagnosis and/or a differential diagnosis of these oral and maxillofacial diseases.
