The course, characterized by a multidisciplinary and integrated approach to teaching, is taught entirely in English and combines an in-depth exploration of medical knowledge characterizing the Italian medical tradition with an international outlook suitable for the medical field of today. However, students should be aware that a basic knowledge of Italian will be required during clinical practice which starts from the third year. We have in fact organized a free Basic Italian Course for all of our students. Students profit from studying in small classes allowing for greater interaction with professors and better access to clinical practice. The percentage of international students is almost unmatched for a degree in Medicine and Surgery in Italy, as Tor Vergata and a few other universities successfully implement medical degrees in English that are unique for public universities in Europe outside anglophone countries.
