New Research Track for medical students

Humanitas University is activating a new integrative training course called “Excellence in Research Track” (ERT) for its medical students interested in investigating the relationship between basic and clinical research.

The course is reserved to Humanitas University students enrolled in the third year of Medicine and satisfying the merit requirements defined in the Call for Admission 2015/2016.

Selected students will be trained in the main research methodologies applicable to preclinical and clinical research, thus acquiring the skills to actively participate in research projects that may lead to developing an experimental thesis.

Students will enrich their preparation with interdisciplinary educational and training activities worth 60 credits in addition to the 360 CFU of the regular Medicine course.
