The aim of the Master’s Degree in “Medicina e Chirurgia” is to train a general practitioner with a solid scientific, professional and ethical preparation allowing a multidisciplinary and integrated approach to the management of community health.
The integrated didactic path to pursue the educational objectives of the course is divided into six years, with a total of 360 CFUs, 60 of which are professional traineeships.
A CFU corresponds to 25 hours of student commitment including at least 8 hours of lectures or 20 hours of practical activities.
The first two years of the course are dedicated to the integrated teaching of the basic preclinical disciplines (chemistry, physics, biology statistics, genetics, biochemistry, anatomy and physiology), aimed at understanding the biological complexity and the functioning of the human organism under normal conditions and to acquire the scientific methodology.
Starting from the third year on, this cultural and methodological basis, the integrated teaching of the disciplines characterizing clinics that lead to the knowledge of the pathological processes and the mechanisms underlying them will be included.
The teaching of clinical disciplines is essential from the medical practice that, starting from the third year, is carried out in small groups under the guidance of a tutor professor in affiliated hospital facilities.
The integration between theoretical, basic and characterizing knowledge, and medical practice not only allow the graduate to solve problems ( diagnosis, therapy and prevention) but also to gain awareness of ethical and social principles, by providing a solid basis for life-long learning, essential for the medical profession.
