Medicine and Surgery - Policlinico Hospital Location
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.
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.
Application and admission: Limited enrolment with admission test.
Students must have 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 duration of these courses depends on the placement obtained in the initial test. The achievement of level B2 language proficiency is a prerequisite for the preparation course in medical and scientific English, required by the degree programme.
The University of Milan has embraced internationalization since the start of the Erasmus Project, in 1987, with the aim of increasing our students' scientific and relational skills within different cultures and educational systems.
Mobility opportunities are addressed to 3rd to 6th year students of the Degree Programme in Medicine, and consist of 3, 6, 9 or 12 month periods abroad at numerous and prestigious universities, supported by a grant. The most popular destinations are Spain, Portugal, France, Germany, the Nordic countries, Poland, Austria, Belgium, Hungary and Romania.
The Erasmus+ programme includes courses, professional training, exams, laboratory activities and research. All the proposed activities (agreed with the foreign university through a learning agreement) are compatible with the study plan envisaged by the Degree Programme. You can ask the Erasmus desk (Course Administration) for guidance in choosing courses and scientific activities that correspond to our Degree Programme and allow you to earn the required credits.
The Erasmus Placement programme allows you to participate in scientific collaborations in international research projects through internships and laboratory activities.
Bilateral agreements with non-European universities (North and South America) provide exchange opportunities through the Clerkship project launched by the International Federation of Medical Students Associations (IFMSA). Procedures are different compared to Erasmus programmes.
The credits obtained from European universities will be converted through the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), and grades will be stated out of 30 by means of a conversion table common to all Medicine Degree Programmes. Your will earn 20 ECTS (CFU) for a 3-month period abroad, 30 ECTS for 6 months and 60 ECTS for 9-12 months.
