Why Study medicine at San Raffaele?
UniSR is one of the top-ranking universities in Italy for research and teaching; it is well known in Italy and in Europe for research on Cancer, Urology, Cardiovascular diseases and cardiac surgery, HIV/AIDS, Rare diseases, Preclinical and Human Biological Sciences. 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.
The newly-renovated curriculum is inspired by internationally acclaimed models and adopts highly integrated, innovative and educational approaches where contents are organized to ensure a progressive specialization with an increasing complexity that corresponds to the skills and competencies gradually acquired.
Elective courses from year 1 offered along with comprehensive courses in all medical areas, are the main innovations of the new curriculum whose aim is to foster and encourage a critical approach towards translational research, behavioural sciences and health management processes.
This early multidisciplinary approach in year 1 is made possible thanks to 3 Elective courses, which are mandatory for all students:
- Language and Behavior for those who want to take care of people
- Nursing (25-hour diving experience to deeply and directly understand the needs and uneasiness of the patient)
- The scientific method, quantitative biology and the art of medicine (with selected professionals and experts to better understand what it means to carry out medical research)
Moreover, starting from year 2, alongside the traditional general track envisaged by the Medical school, students have the ability to choose based on their personal interest and professional ambitions among 3 specific and selective training tracks:
These specialized tracks are devoted to students able to perform adequately, hence selection will be made based on the students’ average grades. At the end of year 6, all students will be awarded the degree title of Medical Doctor, regardless of the chosen track.
Mandatory licensing rotations are offered as curricular activities during the last years allowing IMDP graduates to be immediately granted license to work as doctors in Italy.
The MD program at the Vita-Salute San Raffaele University enjoys recognition from the World Health Organization, the British General Medical Council and by the US Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG®).
