What is MEDTEC School?

Precision medicine, big data, A.I., nanotechnologies, surgical robots, 3D printing and bio-prosthesis: this degree programme will enable a doctor to treat patients through the management of technological developments in medicine and related sectors, including disease prevention and treatment, patient rehabilitation and the development of innovative diagnostic and therapeutic solutions.

The degree programme aims to train professionals who will be able to apply medical and technological know-how as a means of providing innovative and quality medicine. In a global context of increasing complexity, technological innovation makes it possible to improve the quality of life in a sustainable way, innovating care and humanising the doctor-patient relationship.

The six-year year degree programme in Medicine and Surgery, taught in English, is organised by Humanitas University in partnership with Politecnico di Milano. The programme strongly focusses on enhancing the medical skills of a doctor through the integration and acquisition of the basic competences and approaches relevant to Biomedical Engineering.

The integrated six-year training programme  will allow you to obtain additional ECTS and be awarded a Bachelor’s Degree in Biomedical Engineering from Politecnico di Milano, in addition to an MD in Medicine.

The degree programme will provide

1. a bio-medical engineering approach to basic science disciplines (e.g. chemistry, physics, statistics, computer science).

2. the acquisition of competences to deal with precision medicine and regenerative medicine.

3. competences to address complex issues concerning the applications of technology and information analytics to  medicine through the integration of pre-clinical and clinical education with basic engineering subjects  (such as mathematical analysis, computer science, electrical engineering, mechanics, etc.).

4. a multi-disciplinary approach by introducing basic biomedical engineering methodologies and technologies into medical training to foster integration between the two disciplines.

5. an innovative approach to doctor-patient interaction that maximises the potential of technologies and intelligent systems for the optimisation of machine-patient interaction and for the customisation of therapies and continuity of care.

On successfully completing the degree programme you will:

  • have gained in-depth knowledge of  advanced medical technologies and be able to design personalised therapies through the use of complex technological systems for clinical evaluation, diagnosis and treatment.
  • be able to optimise therapeutic outcomes based on the potential of data analytics and machine learning techniques, the use of new materials and advanced therapeutic devices such as surgical robots, endo-prostheses, bio-printers and 3D printing.
  • have opportunities to work in numerous medical fields, e.g. biomedical device design, bio-medical technologies or in pharmaceutical industries.

Double your chances to get into MEDTEC School

Humanitas University offers two opportunities per year to take the MEDTEC School admission test.

It is possible to register to one competition only, i.e. only last OR second-to-last year, depending on your geographical area and school year.

Both test sessions for the 2023/2024 intake will be held online on the following dates:

  • 1st test: 5th April 2024
  • 2nd test: 19th April 2024

Students may decide to take the test in one or both sessions available.

The final ranking will only consider the higher of the two scores obtained*.

 *for those who will have taken the admission test in both sessions.

Information for second-to-last year high school students

  • The scores of the two tests taken during the second-to-last year of high school will be valid for the entry ranking of your high school graduation year.
  • If you are enrolled in the second-to-last year of high school, you will be able to take two more tests during the final year. The results will be valid for the admission ranking for the year you obtain your school leaving certificate.
  • No partial rankings will be published, but only the final one, which will be issued once the four admission tests have been completed (with respect to the year of your high school graduation). At the end of each test, however, all the scores will be published anonymously.
  • The final ranking will consider only the best of the four scores obtained.
