Course Objectives

The degree programme is designed to provide graduates with both a solid, up-to-date scientific understanding of medicine, and a deep appreciation of the human and social complexities associated with health and disease. Graduates must therefore possess both a sound scientific grounding, and the requisite theoretic, practical and social preparation to practice medicine.  

Students will be encouraged to dedicate constant attention to the human aspects of health and disease and to develop the capacity to confront medical problems using a scientific approach and methodology, which they will also build upon through their participation in research projects.  

Students will also be equipped to analyse data critically and autonomously, verifying their scientific basis while always taking health costs into consideration.



Career and Employment

Medicine and Surgery graduates can enter medical and surgery occupations in the various professional clinical, healthcare and bio-medical positions and sectors.

The Medicine and Surgery degree programme provides an entry point to the State Examination required to qualify to practice as a surgeon-physician, upon successful completion of which it is then possible to register with the relevant professional body.  

The Medicine and Surgery degree qualification is also a prerequisite for entering Specialisation Schools in the medical sphere and the Regional School of General Medicine.
