The study of medicine at the University of Modena can be dated back to the 1300s, just after its foundation. The founding fathers of this discipline in Modena were - just to mention some of the most distinguished scientists - Bernardino Ramazzini, Annibale Francesco Torti and Scarpa. On the basis of this tradition, the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery has always enjoyed national and international recognition and prestige, as recently confirmed by numerous scientific collaborations with some of the world’s leading institutes. For many years the training provided by the Faculty has also been held in the Polo Hospital of the New Civil Hospital Sant’Agostino-Estense Baggiovara and in the Arcispedale at the Hospital S. Maria Nuova, Reggio Emilia. These hospitals, Baggiovara Modena and Reggio Emilia, are sites that allow for the integration of practical tasks associated with care alongside training and research.
Teaching is mainly delivered at the Educational Services Center. Located at the University Hospital of Modena the building is a centre of excellence, being well resourced with technological equipment, and offering a wide variety of services. However, teaching and training also take place in the wards of the hospitals and, most importantly, in clinical practices. In fact, there are a number of students in the research laboratories of the various departments, who aim at discovering the therapies of the future. This indicates the level of integration that exists between the time spent practising and the time spent researching. Recent innovative experiences introduced by the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery, include the organisation of training courses held outside of the hospitals, in particular at the clinics of general practitioners and other institutions in the Modena and Reggio Emilia area, such as clinics, nursing homes and other agencies with private facilities. The Faculty provides teaching, services and research opportunities that will accompany future graduates throughout their university and professional career.
