Medicine and Surgery - San Paolo Hospital Location
The specific objectives for the pre-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;
promote 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 integrate the five Dublin descriptors (European descriptors) with those proposed by the International Medical Education (IIME) and the "The TUNING Project (Medicine) - Learning Outcomes/Competences for Undergraduate Medical Education in Europe". Furthermore, they align perfectly with the requirements of the "core curriculum" for the Master's degree in Medicine as proposed on a national level by the Conference of Italian Master-Degree Programme Presidents.
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 amount of the first instalment is the same for all students
