Humanitas Medicine and Surgery degree course is a 6-year university programme.

The course is taught entirely in English. A basic knowledge of Italian is required during the clinical practice, at the third year. Read more about language related requirements here.

From the first year, theoretical interdisciplinary modules are integrated with hands-on experience and simulation activities. Clerkships commence in the 3rd year, when students can also access the The Virgilio Program.

In this video Naz (Turkey) and Louis (France) share their experiences as medical students at Humanitas University: the key features that make studying medicine at Hunimed unique, typical study and clinical rotation activities, the role of tutors and professors, daily life at Hunimed and special opportunities offered by the university.

The course is characterized by a multidisciplinary and integrated approach to teaching, therefore most individual courses are grouped into modules, with a total of 360 credits and 29 examinations, distributed into 12 semesters. Attendance is compulsory and is a prerequisite to taking exams.

Among the teaching methods, particular relevance is given to interactive teaching, which mostly consists of group activities and team-work coordinated by a tutor. Examples of such methods are Problem Based Learning, Case Method, Problem Solving, Concept Maps and Portfolios.
