Humanitas University has 22 Medical Specialty Schools, reflecting Humanitas' Centres of Excellence
Humanitas University’s Medical Specialty Schools offer courses based on a multidisciplinary approach and on innovative teaching methods that allow medical residents to deepen the knowledge necessary for the medical profession. For instance, they can test medical equipments and surgical techniques in the state-of-the-art Mario Luzzatto Simulation Center, which faithfully reproduces a modern hospital and hosts high-fidelity simulators, as well as workstations equipped with augmented reality and imaging.
Congresses, seminars and contacts with international research groups allow those who wish to pursue a career in research to develop useful competencies.
Medical residents can also conduct training experiences abroad, thanks to the international partnerships established by Humanitas.
There are several courses common to all medical speciality schools that allow residents to acquire cross-disciplinary skills in several fields:
- Epidemiology/Biostatistics/Medical Writing
- Doctor-Patient Relationship
- Resource and Quality Management
Admission to a Specialty School is based on a national call for applications, that includes presenting academic qualifications and passing an admission exam. For further information please visit the Italian page
