The MD course in Medicine and Surgery at Humanitas University lasts 6 years and is taught in English. Students can meet up with fellow undergraduates from over 20 countries worldwide.

From the very first year, theoretical and practical skills can be acquired thanks to the multidisciplinary modules combined with practical training and simulation activities, carried out under the guidance of professors and researchers with international experience – including 3 Noble Prize winners – and 150 doctors, who also work as tutors and members of the teaching community. An International Advisory Board supports the University in its educational and training goals.

From the third year, students will start their clinical training at Humanitas Research Hospitals under the supervision of specialised tutors, who follow undergraduates through their clinical practice. Students can also join the Virgilio Program, an interdisciplinary program dedicated to biomedical research, featuring interactive teaching activities and laboratory experience – one month a year – to enable active participation in scientific research.

Future doctors can also benefit from a study period abroad, by means of travel grants and the Erasmus programme.

Conferences and seminars with Italian and internationally renowned doctors and researchers are organised to promote cultural awareness and support professional academic growth.
