Our graduates are exposed to the content and methods of scientific research in the context of a translational training aimed at leading them in their lifelong learning and/or in their profession of biomedical scientists. Graduates in the Medicine and Surgery degree courses acquire the professional profile adequate to carry out medical-surgical work in the different professional clinical, health and bio-medical roles and spheres.

The achievement of the IMS degree enables to practice as a physician (Legislative Decree 17-3-2020, n.18, Art.102) and to register in the Italian medical register, upon acquisition of a positive evaluation in the Evaluation Training Internship, as referred to Art.3 of the Decree of the Ministry of Education, University and research (MUR) 9-5-2018, n.58. Graduates can pursue a medical career in a wide range of clinical, healthcare and bio-medical roles and domains. IMS degree is a prerequisite for entering medical Residencies programs, the School of General Medicine (upon National Admission test) and/or PhD programs (upon Universities Admission test).

Employment statistics (Almalaurea)
The International Medical School set up an "Erasmus Desk" dedicated to students interested in both incoming and outgoing international mobility programmes, both within the Erasmus+ projects (Student Exchange and Traineeship Program) and other non-European mobility programmes, or other internships abroad (Free Movers program). The desk ([email protected]) is managed by the Erasmus tutor of the course who supports the students in the choice of the mobility programs, welcomes and manages the requests of foreign students interested in organizing a study/internship period in IMS, and assists both incoming and outgoing students in the drafting of learning agreements

The student is required to attend all the teaching activities, with a tolerance of no more than 1/3 of the hours, according to the Regolamento. Students are required to sign their attendance at each learning activities. Should the number of absences be higher than 1/3, the Teaching Committee will take the necessary measures.

Enrolment
All the degree courses in Medicine and Surgery of the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery of the University of Milan have programmed access and require an admission test. Upon the Law 264 date 2.8.1999, the test is the same for all Italian public universities offering an international medical curriculum, and takes place on the same day at the same time all over the world. The main focus of the admission test is to examine and judge the fundamentals of scientific knowledge and reasoning. The number of students who can be admitted is defined annually by a Decree of the Ministry of Education and Research (MUR), taking account of the training potential declared by the university on the basis of the teaching and clinical resources and structures available, and also the requirements reported by the Lombardy Region and the Ministry of Health. Candidates who have a High School Diploma, or alternative qualification achieved abroad and recognized as suitable, can be admitted to the single cycle degree courses in Medicine and Surgery. Candidates in eligible positions in the ranking of the admission test must enroll according to the procedure of the university.

The admission test (International Medical Admissions Test, IMAT) is designed by Cambridge Assessment in conjunction with the Italian Ministry of Higher Education and Research. The admission test consists of sixty (60) multiple choice questions with five options (of which only one is correct) on the following topics: general knowledge and logical reasoning; biology; chemistry; physics and mathematics.

Additional Formative Obligations (OFA)
Students admitted with a total score of less than 45/90 and who have achieved a score of less than 11,25/22,5 for the questions evaluating the knowledge of Biology, will be assigned additional educational obligations (OFA). These obligations consist in on purpose activities. Failure to pass the OFA will not allow to take the examination of Cells, Molecules and Genes 1. Details on OFA will be advertised on the website: https://ims.cdl.unimi.it/en.

Lecture Planning
Academic Calendar of teaching activities:
- first semester courses are scheduled from mid-September through the end of January, for all years except the 1st year course, usually beginning mid-October;
