The degree programme in Medicine and Surgery (English language) at Humanitas University lasts 6 years and is taught in English. Student can meet up with fellow undergraduates from over 20 countries worldwide.
After obtaining a degree in Medicine, graduates can sit the state exam to enrol in the professional register and take the exam to enter a Medical Specialty School.
From the very first year, theoretical and practical competences can be acquired thanks to the multidisciplinary modules combined with practical training and simulation activities, carried out under the guidance of professors and researchers with international experience – including 3 Noble Prize Winners – and 150 doctors, who also work as tutors and members of the teaching community.
An International Advisory Board supports the University in its educational and training goals.
Starting from the third year students will start their clinical training at the various Humanitas Hospitals under the supervision of specialised tutors, who follow undergraduates through their clinical practice. Students can also join the Virgilio Programme, dedicated to biomedical research. The programme allows for the integration of their curriculum with inter-disciplinary seminars, interactive teaching activities and laboratory experience – one month a year – to enable active participation in scientific research.
Teaching and assessment
There are several types of learning activities including core courses, vocational training, elective courses and training activities for the preparation of the thesis (for a detailed description see below).
For each learning activity, students gain a certain number of university credits and a mark awarded on a 30-point scale or pass/fail exam. The minimum passing mark is 18/30. Any attribution of honor, in addition to the maximum mark of 30, is subject to the unanimous assessment of the Commission.
