The degree programme in Medicine and Surgery at Humanitas University lasts 6 years and is taught in English. Student can meet up with fellow undergraduates from over 20 countries worldwide. After obtaining a degree in Medicine, graduates can sit the state exam to enrol in the professional register and take the exam to enter a Medical Specialty School.

From the very first year, theoretical and practical competences 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.

Starting from the third year students will start their clinical training at the various Humanitas Hospitals under the supervision of specialised tutors, who follow undergraduates through their clinical practice. Students can also join the Virgilio Programme, dedicated to biomedical research. The programme allows for the integration of their curriculum with inter-disciplinary seminars, interactive teaching activities and laboratory experience – one month a year – to enable active participation in scientific research.

Future doctors can also enjoy the benefits of a period abroad thanks to 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.
