European credit system

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

The programme is organised in 12 semesters and 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 give particular attention to the uniqueness of each patient and his or her needs, thus enhancing a personalised way of treatment.

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

The 6th year is entirely dedicated to practice in hospital and in other healthcare facilities within the Lazio region. The programme ends with the realisation of a thesis on a topic chosen by the student, which will then be presented to a graduation committee.
