A wide network of structures (that includes university structures, hospitals, emergency departments, ASL (Local Health Public Utilities) districts, general medical practitioners and, to a lesser extent, pediatricians) makes clerkships a highly important and instructive part of the curriculum of the Medicine and Surgery programme from University of Turin.

Almost one sixth of the ECTS dedicated to clerkships are to be obtained through professional activities on the territory; an interprofessional clerkship is scheduled for first year-students.

The proximity of educational and hospital facilities simplifies contacts between students and teaching staff, the implemetation of integrated courses and an early development of a patient-physician relationship through interprofessional clerkships during the first year. In this clerkships, third-year nursing students will tutor medical students promoting the development of interprofessional collaboration and team-work. 

Some of the clinical ECTS are anticipated to the first years, while some of the pre-clinical ECTS are postponed to the III-IV-V years. The "Dorsale Clinica" is a set of lessons designed to discuss clinical cases with course coordinators; each year from the II to the V includes a "Dorsale Clinica", which will be focused on the topics of the courses held during the specific year. 

The presence and accessibility of various qualified research groups allows a high integration between didactics and research. Services for students, which include the Erasmus + Program, the Erasmus Placement Program, and the Job Placement, expand the opportunities for discussion, acquisition of new skills and methods, and for a direct first contact with the labour market.
