European credit system

The 6-year program provides a total of 360 ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits of which more than 60 are dedicated to training activities aimed at developing specific professional skills.

The program, organized in 12 semesters, offers 19 integrated courses: fundamentals of basic science (5 courses); fundamentals of medicine (4 courses); medical statistics and epidemiology (1 course); clinical medicine (8 courses); cardiovascular emergencies (1 course). Courses on the principles of clinical methodology share a careful attention to the uniqueness of each patient and his or her needs, with a strong focus on personalized treatments.

Courses on pathology, pharmacology and diagnostic imaging are taught simultaneously throughout the 3rd, 4th and 5th year to integrate the study of different diseases in an embedded model, applying knowledge of appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic practices. Through these integrated courses, students gradually become familiar with the concepts of interdisciplinary approach, inter-professionalism, health economics, the doctor’s social responsibility and patient’s education especially in relation to disease prevention.

The 6th year is entirely dedicated to training in a hospital and in other healthcare structures within the Lazio region. The program ends with a thesis on a subject chosen by the student and which is presented to a commission of experts.
