Common training objectives (or common core)
Students must acquire adequate theoretical knowledge and professional skill in the diagnosis and treatment, even in emergency-urgent situations, of the most common pathologies in internal and developmental medicine.
Given the specific cultural links existing among the different class types, the common core university credits (CFU) of related specialist subjects must include:
-theoretical knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the central and peripheral nervous system;
-general theoretical knowledge of etiopathogenic mechanisms in neurological and psychiatric pathologies through the various stages of life;
-core theoretical knowledge and practical experience in diagnostic methods, even differential methods (clinical examination, diagnostic medical imaging, electrophysiological techniques, chemical-biological exams and psychometric evaluation) of neurological and psychiatric pathologies through the various stages of life;
-theoretical knowledge and clinical-practical experience (including urgent/emergency situations) pertaining to the main pathologies of neurological and psychiatric interest in the various stages of life, including neurological and psychiatric complications in internal medicine;
-core theoretical knowledge and clinical-practical experience in the main techniques adopted in prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of neurological and psychiatric pathologies through the various stages of life.

General training objectives
Knowledge of: the morphogenesis and structural organization of the nervous system; of how the central and peripheral nervous system and muscles function under both normal and pathological conditions; basic statistical analysis and the epidemiological method; computer skills for data acquisition and processing.
Acquire knowledge of the biological basis of pharmacological activity, as well as medical-legal and bioethical implications of drug use and, in general, of problems linked to neurological pathologies; understand basic etiopathogenic mechanisms, including those of molecular medicine applied to neurology, and of clinical neurochemistry;
Knowledge of the history of medicine and neurology.

School-specific training objectives
Knowledge of: the fundamental causes and pathogenic mechanisms of diseases of the central and peripheral nervous system and muscles, and appropriate assistance; structural and/or functional alterations in the nervous system and corresponding lesions from a neuropathology perspective; functional semiotics, clinical methods, instrumental and laboratory diagnostics; neuroimaging and the neurophysiological and neuropsychological presentation of diseases of the nervous system over a life cycle; developmental and geriatric neurology; urgent neurology, physiopathology and acute and chronic pain therapy, clinical and molecular neurogenetics, disability diagnosis and recovery and neurological rehabilitation, clinical neuropsychology, clinical neurobiology, including the histopathology of the central nervous system, muscles and nerves, and neuroimmunology.
