The HUMAT Test

HUMAT: the first step into your medical career. It tests what you can do, not what you know.

Through its new admission test HUMAT, Humanitas University wants to identify talented students that independently from their diverse educational background possess abilities in scientific thinking, critical thinking and have a solid academic literacy.

The test seeks to select students with the potential for a successful career in medicine.

The new test does not therefore evaluate previous knowledge but a set of skills and abilities relevant to:

  • face the academic requirements of the degree course/course of study,
  • foster the emergence and progression of scientific reasoning
  • sustain meaningful and self-regulated learning
  • promote correct decision-making processes

 

In the HUMAT test students are required to answer 60 multiple-choice questions with four response options in 120 minutes.

 

 

The test format was developed is by Humanitas University together with experts from University of Cambridge, Imperial College, University of Oxford Medical School and Leeds Medical School.

 

The test is composed of two sections:

Section 1: Scientific thinking

  1. Mathematical Thinking; 
  2. Procedural Thinking; 
  3. Visual Thinking

Section 2: Academic Literacy

i. Critical Thinking skills e.g. analysis, evaluation, inference, deductive skills, and inductive skills;
ii. Local expeditious reading, e.g. scanning and searching for specific details;

iv. Global careful reading, e.g. comprehending main ideas, connecting ideas from different texts and understanding how different texts relate to each other;
