Masters' degree in Medicine and SurgeryThe mission of the Masters' degree programme is to train medical students within a biomedical-psychosocial framework, providing them with a multi-disciplinary and integrated vision of the problems relating to health, illness and death. Graduates will be encouraged to orientate themselves towards the community, whilst maintaining the essential objective of preventing disease and promoting good health.
The teaching focuses initially on pre-clinical disciplines, then concentrates on problem-orientated learning. Students will complete periods of professional training in the fields of internal medicine, general surgery, paediatrics, obstetrics and gynaecology which involves early contact with patients and promotes the acquisition of strong clinical and interpersonal skills.
For research and training purposes, the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery takes advantage of the high number of nationally and internationally acknowledged health clinics in Pavia . The faculty's collaboratin with hospitals such as the The San Matteo foundation (IRCCS), internationally renowned for its excellence in the field of cardiosurgery, the Neuroscience Hospital foundation "C.Mondino" (IRCCS) and the Occupational Medicine Hospital Foundation "S.Maugeri" (IRCCS) make Pavia a dynamic and challenging environment for aspiring medical students.
