Description of the Course

Uniquely positioned to meet the evolving needs of tomorrow's health care professionals, University of Milano-Bicocca’s School of Medicine and Surgery (SMS) is a degree program in partnership with University of Surrey (UK), the University of Bergamo and the Papa Giovanni XXIII Hospital that endeavors to prepare graduating physicians for leadership positions in the health care sector. Based in Bergamo, the program has a revolutionary new medical curriculum that for the first time integrates a rigorous program of basic science education with intensive clinical mentoring right from second year onwards. The program offers a multidisciplinary and inter-professional educational experience fostering an integration of knowledge and skills, open-mindedness, scientific and critical thinking, a caring attitude, and a holistic approach to addressing health care needs. The teaching methodology is based on PBL (Problem Based Learning)that facilitates knowledge acquisition, enhanced group collaboration and team learning across seven major physio-pathological integrated systems.

• Cardiovascular

• Onco-Haematology

• Locomotor

• Digestion

• Kidney & Urology tract

• Neuroscience

• Obstetrics –Gynaecology

• Paediatrics

Finally, studying in a diverse incoming class enables students to develop intercultural consciousness, expand their understanding of health in a global context and get prepared to leverage their skills in global health in both clinical practice and research.
