Technology today is pervasive in every field, especially in medicine. This course is a direct response to the job markets’ needs for highly skilled Med Tech professionals in research and industry. Medical professionals need to acquire knowledge of a wide range of medical technology, from pacemakers to prosthetics, from imaging to big data.
We offer an innovative MD course with a -year programme entirely delivered in English designed to integrate clinical and engineering expertise. With this course we want to train future doctors with a solid hard science background and strong skills in applied biomedical technologies.
This Medical Degree gives full access to any Residency School and it gives a competitive advantage for programs where technology is a key component.
At the end of the MD course students are eligible to receive a Bachelor Degree in Biomedical Engineering with additional ECTS credits.
> This is a highly demanding course which opens up many career opportunities across numerous medical fields.
> It offers a unique opportunity to integrate different knowledge and skills in medicine with engineering.
> In addition to the medical curriculum, students will acquire know-how in a variety of technical fields: artificial intelligence, big data, tissue engineering, biomaterials and bioprinting, nanotechnologies, electronics, biomedical and surgical robotics, virtual and augmented reality.
> Some of our classes are shared with Engineering students to encourage cross-fertilisation.
Skills associated with the function:
To carry out the functions described above, specific skills in the technical-scientific fields are required ingengineering as well as specific transversal skills, which the student will acquire during the course of study. In particular, graduates of the Master's Degree courses in Medicine and Surgery must be equipped with the scientific basis and theoretical-practical preparation necessary pursuant to Directive 75/363/EEC for the exercise of the medical profession and the methodology and culture necessary for the practice. of ongoing training, as well as a level of professional, decision-making and operational autonomy deriving from a training path characterized by a holistic approach to the health problems of healthy or sick people also in relation to the chemical-physical, biological and social environment that surrounds.
The skills associated with the doctor's function, defined according to the Tun Project methodologying by the MEDINE working group, establish that graduates must be able to:
