This means that students have the unique possibility of studying and living in an exciting environment where breakthroughs are made every day in the treatment of acute and chronic conditions.

You will re-visit topics from your first two years in the fourth and fifth years both in class and by sitting mock licensure exams. The second semester of the sixth year is free from lessons and exams, allowing you to concentrate entirely on your Thesis Internship and to do part of it abroad. This gives you the possibility of getting to know foreign institutions where you might want to continue with your specialization training.
But it’s not all work! At Vita-Salute you will find clubs to join, cultural activities to follow, music bands, sports activities such as football, basketball, cheer leading and many others. The clubs organize nights out and you will be able to meet students from other faculties and universities in Milan.
