The Single-cycle Master's Degree Programme in Medicine and Surgery features compulsory attendance and offers students a theoretical-practical training in all fields of medicine. Graduates acquire both disciplinary and cross-cutting knowledge and skills in order to: address and solve health problems from a preventive, diagnostic, prognostic, therapeutic and rehabilitative perspective; adopt an integrated and ethical approach, as well as an effective and empathic communication with the individual, to understand it in its organic and psychological, social and cultural reality; actively collaborate at interdisciplinary and interprofessional level; assess clinical problems by applying the principles of scientific methodology and be able to constantly update their knowledge by making informed use of scientific literature.

Course content

The Degree Programme lasts six years. During the first two years, basic sciences are mainly dealt with. From the third year, all the clinical disciplines, medical and surgical subjects, the disciplines of public health, legal medicine and occupational medicine are studied. The fundamentals of the main laboratory and diagnostic methods for imaging and the principles of applications to the medicine of biomedical technologies are also studied. Parallel to the lectures, students carry out job-oriented training activities, in university or partnered healthcare facilities. The internship will also be carried out on the territory, in the clinics of general medical practitioners and the territorial structures of the regional healthcare service. The aspects of the relationship with the patient, also from the psychological point of view, and of the communication with the relatives are valued. The ability to collaborate with different professionals in group health activities, the ability to recognise the health problems of the community and to intervene in a competent way are also part of the skills obtained.
