They have a six-year program that’s divided into two parts. The first two years focus on subjects like anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, and microbiology. The next four years involve working in hospitals. IMS likes to teach using real problems, different subjects, and practical medical skills. Students can also study in other countries through the Erasmus Programme.

All classes are in English, but students also have to learn Italian.

To graduate, students need to write and defend a final thesis in English. After finishing, they get the title of Dottore magistrale, which is like a Doctor of Medicine in English.

When students reach the fifth year, they do 17 CFU and 289 hours of training. Finally, in the last year, they do 29 CFU and 393 hours.

What makes this school different is that in the final year, students have to do a research presentation. They work closely with a professor to show how well they know medicine and how much they’ve learned from the University of Bologna medical school.

4. University of Turin

The University of Turin, which started in 1404, asked Antonio Cusano, the city’s doctor, to create the Faculty of Medicine in 1412. The university has a long history of over 600 years in teaching medicine.

The Medicine and Surgery program at the University of Turin wants to train doctors who can work anywhere in the world. To do this, they have ways to connect with professors from other countries who have different experiences and ways of teaching. This helps students learn medical skills that are important in a world that’s connected to many places.

Students can also use programs like Erasmus+ and ERASMUS placement to study in other countries and learn new things. They can also get help finding jobs, which lets them use their skills and talk to employers.

So, they need to know some Italian for this part of their training, which starts in the third year.
