Studying @ Hunimed: the voice to a US / Canadian student

“What I would say to Americans interested in studying medicine is to definitely explore Humanitas before they look to a bachelor’s program; coming directly out of high school could save you a lot of years! The course prepares you well for medicine and I don’t find it difficult to come back to America for a residency.”

“The biggest plus is the amount of years we spend within the hospital compared to an american university.”

Ciara and Amanda, 1st year Hunimed medical students from US and Canada respectively, share their thoughts about studying and living at Humanitas University, describing a typical day, lectures, facilities and services.
