The Social side of the Medicine

  • Association with other people & Team work. Willingness and ability to work with patients and their families is one of the primary reason to study medicine.  The doctor–patient relationship is a central pillar to the practice of healthcare and also assures high-quality care, diagnosis and treatments.
  • At Humanitas University, at the beginning of the studies students are divided into smaller groups (with 1 tutor per 2 students) and will be given a chance to also work on their social skills that will be relevant later on in medical practice. Student will also be taught how to maintain a professional relationship with patients.


  • Numerous opportunities upon  graduation. After graduation there is a broad range of opportunities for future career. Medical graduates can choose between working in hospitals, science institutes, public health care or in healthcare management and administration.
