The Master's degree programme in Medicine contemplates 360 CFU overall, spread out over six years, of which 60 must be earned as part of coursework aimed at developing specific professional acumen. The programme is intended to provide the scientific bases, and the necessary practical skills and theory required under Directive 75/363/EEC to practice medicine, as well as the methodology and experience to engage in continuing medical education after graduation; it also instils professional, decision-making, and operational autonomy thanks to an educational programme that takes a holistic approach to the health of all persons, sick and well, and includes training in assessing the chemical-physical, biological, and social environment of the patient.

The specific objectives for the pre-clinical and clinical coursework are set, on a priority basis, based on the following criteria:
· relevance of each objective within the framework of human biology,
· the preparation provided by each objective in terms of specific clinical issues.
The specific objectives for the clinical coursework are set, on a priority basis, based on the following criteria:
· epidemiological prevalence, urgency of the care needed, possibility of providing care, severity, educational value;
· promoting clinical work through healthcare facilities, at least for the hospital wards;
· improving patient interactions, including the physician's bedside manner;
· assessing adverse events and any other issue relating to the use of medicine (Pharmacovigilance) to ensure a favourable risk/benefit ratio for the community;
· assessing gender-based differences (Gender Medicine), with the ultimate goal of ensuring all persons, whether male or female, receive the best possible care.
These objectives fulfil the five Dublin descriptors (European Descriptors) with the suggestions provided by the Institute for International Medical Education (IIME) and "The TUNING Project (Medicine) - Learning Outcomes/Competences for Undergraduate Medical Education in Europe". Furthermore, these align perfectly with the guidelines of the "core curriculum" for the Master's degree in Medicine proposed at a national level by the Conference of the Italian Master-Degree Programme Presidents.
The degree in Medicine allows the graduate to sit for the State Exam to be licensed to practice medicine. Once the graduate has passed the exam, they can enrol in the professional association as a licensed, non-specialised physician. Licensed, non-specialised physicians are eligible for the Post-Graduate Programmes in Medicine and Medical Services (4-to-5-year programme) and the Internal Medicine Programme (3-year programme).

Licensed physicians can practice medicine in a variety of professional roles, whether through clinical practice, healthcare policy and management, or the biomedical sciences. Potential avenues for employment include:
a) becoming a National Health Service doctor, or working with a public or state agency (post-graduate degree in medicine required);
b) research in clinical or pre-clinical practice, as part of a university career, or through work with a research entity (a PhD is recommended);
c) working as a freelance professional (post-graduate degree required to practice as a specialist, as well as completion of a training programme in Internal Medicine to practice as a licensed, non-specialty physician).

The practice of medicine is regulated by Italian law.

Employment statistics (Almalaurea)
The Single-cycle degree programme in Medicine offers students the opportunity to complete a portion of their degree requirements on a study-abroad programme (1-12 month programmes). That option is available both through institutional channels like the European Erasmus programme, and through the "Clerkship" offered by IFMSA (International Federation of Medical Students Associations) of which the Italian Medical Students Association ("SISM") is a member. All coursework and other for-credit activities completed abroad must be authorised by the college of instructors for the particular degree programme. The transfer of all or any portion of such credits shall be carried out pursuant to the European Credit Transfer Systems (ECTS), and shall be applied against the student's degree requirements. The conversion of any marks earned abroad shall be into thirtieths, pursuant to the schedule approved by the Academic Senate.

Obblighi formativi aggiuntivi (OFA):
Agli studenti ammessi con un punteggio totale inferiore a 45/90 e che hanno raggiunto un punteggio inferiore a 13,5/27 per le domande rivolte alla conoscenza della Biologia, saranno assegnati obblighi formativi aggiuntivi (OFA). Tali obblighi potranno essere colmati mediante attivita` di recupero appositamente previste. Il mancato superamento dell'OFA non permetterà di sostenere l?esame Biologia e Genetica. Per le diverse iniziative sara` data tempestiva notizia sul sito: https://medicina-centrale.cdl.unimi.it/it

Obblighi formativi aggiuntivi (OFA) - Lingua inglese Livello B2:
Per poter sostenere l'esame di lingua inglese previsto dal piano di studio è richiesta la conoscenza della lingua inglese di livello B2 del Quadro Comune Europeo di Riferimento per le lingue (QCER). Tale livello può essere attestato nei seguenti modi:
- tramite l'invio di una certificazione linguistica conseguita non oltre i 3 anni antecedenti la data di presentazione della stessa, di livello B2 o superiore (per la lista delle certificazioni linguistiche riconosciute dall'Ateneo si rimanda al sito: https://www.unimi.it/it/studiare/competenze-linguistiche/placement-test…). La certificazione deve essere caricata al momento dell'immatricolazione, o, successivamente, sul portale http://studente.unimi.it/uploadCertificazioniLingue;
- tramite Placement Test, erogato da SLAM esclusivamente durante il I anno, da ottobre a dicembre. In caso di non superamento del test, sarà necessario seguire i corsi erogati da SLAM.
Il Placement Test è obbligatorio per tutti gli studenti che non sono in possesso di una certificazione valida.

Sedi primarie del Corso di Laurea Magistrale a ciclo unico in Medicina e Chirurgia - Polo Centrale sono il complesso didattico di Città Studi quanto ai primi 5 semestri del Corso di Laurea, e la Fondazione IRCCS Ca' Granda Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico quanto ai restanti 7 semestri. Per taluni insegnamenti dei primi 5 semestri potrebbe essere necessario ricorrere a una suddivisione degli studenti in due gruppi; in questo caso, la suddivisione seguirà il criterio alfabetico.
Il Corso di Laurea si avvale, ai fini dello svolgimento delle attività didattiche e formative in ambito clinico, della possibilità di attivare ulteriori linee di insegnamento presso le strutture ospedaliere convenzionate con la Facoltà di Medicina e Chirurgia, secondo quanto previsto dalle linee guida Università-Regione Lombardia. L'attivazione delle singole linee didattiche viene proposta annualmente alla Facoltà. Gli studenti possono essere assegnati, a partire dal 1° anno del Corso di Laurea, a frequentare le 2 linee di insegnamento costituite presso la Fondazione IRCCS Ca' Granda Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico e presso l'IRCCS Policlinico San Donato. Successivamente a partire dal 6° semestre gli studenti assegnati originariamente alla Fondazione Ca' Granda Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico possono essere a loro volta assegnati presso l'Ospedale San Giuseppe o presso altre strutture convenzionate con l'Ateneo, secondo il medesimo piano didattico curriculare. L'assegnazione viene determinata annualmente, in relazione alla disponibilità delle strutture e alle esigenze del Corso di Laurea.
