Course description

"Medicine consists of three things: the disease, the patient and the physician: the latter is the servant of the Art” (Hippocrates of Kos, 5th Cent. BCE)

Medical Doctors are qualified professional with a sound grounding in bio-medical and psycho-social studies, and with a multi-disciplinary and integrated vision of health issues and disease. The training offered to doctors must be oriented to the local community and territory, with the clear aim of preventing disease and promoting health. A sound focus on medical humanities has a crucial role in this degree programme. Teaching activities will provide a grounding in basic science, in disciplines required to study human pathologies and in clinical disciplines which will be studied to the level required by general practitioners.

Mandatory clinical placements are an important and essential part of the learning process and account for one-sixth of the teaching activities: the placements take place in hospital departments starting from the third year. Students are also offered some elective activities aimed at preparing them for their final exam, i.e. their degree thesis.

As Hippocrates said, medicine is an Ars longa. So be prepared to study for many years, but with the exciting prospect of becoming a doctor!

Lessons are held in Italian.
