At the end of a six year program, Dental Medicine graduates possess the technical skills and knowledge required to operate as professional figures in the field of public and private dentistry. Graduates will also have developed the learning skills needed to pursue specialist degrees. Students are trained in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment, either surgical or medical, of acquired conditions and congenital disorders of the teeth, mouth, jaw bones, temporo-mandibular joints and related tissues, as well as in dental rehabilitation. 

The learning programme focuses on:
- basic training geared at introducing students to the fundamentals of the structural organisation and vital functions of the human body;
- the study of medical, surgical and specialist disciplines, with particular reference to the clinical problems associated with odontostomatological pathologies;
- doctor-patient relationship and the key principles of scientific methodology;
- clinical activities.

Dental Medicine graduates can pursue careers in the field of professional dentistry. They can also undertake first and second level managerial roles within the National Health Service, in accordance with the current legislation. Moreover, graduates can access, subject to competition, to specialty schools in Pediatrics, Orthodontics and Oral Surgery, or to PhD programmes focusing on clinical research.

Limited enrolment with admission test.  
For further information on the number of places and the date of the admission test, please visit the website www.unimi.it – “Prospective students”.

English language
Students are expected to attain level B2 proficiency in English. Proficiency may be certified at the time of matriculation by submitting a certificate of level B2 language proficiency or better, or by sitting the SLAM (University Language Centre) placement test during the first year of studies only, between September and December. Students who do not pass the test must follow the SLAM language courses and obtain appropriate certification within the year the plan of study calls for a language exam. The achievement of level B2 language proficiency is a prerequisite for the preparation course in medical and scientific English, required by the degree programme.
 

Students can attend courses abroad for a quarter during the fifth and sixth years under European Union mobility programmes (Erasmus).
In accordance with current procedures, students who wish to seize this opportunity shall apply to the Erasmus Commission of the Master's degree programme specifying the proposed Learning Agreement, i.e. the activities they intend to carry out at the foreign university. Applications will be evaluated according to the procedures and criteria established by the agreements in place.

The training activities carried out abroad in the framework of EU student mobility programmes are assessed by the Commission and reported to the board in charge of their recognition for the purposes of obtaining the Master's Degree.

During their period abroad, students are exempted from attending mandatory courses of the Master's degree programme in Milan.
