Histology is a scientific discipline necessary to understand the main biological processes, and which is basic for the training and future career of biologists. It provides them with the fundamental knowledge on the complexity of cells, tissues and organs in organisms, at a microscopic level. It is also an essential subject to better know alls levels of complexity, from basic (atomic, molecular and cellular) to greater levels (of organs and organism systems) taught in other courses (Physiology, Biopathology, Botany, Zoology, etc.).
Professional profile background: Histology provides biologists with the essential knowledge for the development of virtually all career paths for a Biologist (sanitary, environmental, biotechnology, etc.) included in the White Book of the studies of Biology (http://www.aneca.es/var/media/150328/libroblanco_biologia_def.pdf ).
Academic profile background: In an academic context, Histology is an essential course as it is one of the basic subjects of modern Biology. The reason for this is that the cells and tissues are the basic units of all living organisms, which are the aim of the study of Biology.
