The most qualifying features of our Medicine and Surgery Program are:

  2. the complete synergy between basic and clinical sciences;

These qualities are achieved through a multidisciplinary approach and an early involvement in patient management, while also addressing ethical issues and legal responsibilities, which are at the basis of the profession.

The Program provides students with a strong scientific background, and theoretical and hands-on preparation in medical practice and methodology, as well as a high level of professional decision-making and operational independence in terms of ability to face and solve the main health problems from all points of view: preventive, diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic.
