The Faculty

Since its foundation in 1998, the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery of the Vita-Salute San Raffaele University has grown to
become a vital part of the IRCCS Ospedale San Raffaele healthcare and research system.
The excellence of its academic staff
and the close partnership between teaching, clinical work and research allows the Faculty to provide state-of-the-art training.
From the very start of their training programme, students have the chance to come into contact with the advanced healthcare
provided by IRCCS Ospedale San Raffaele and with the high-quality research performed inside the facility. The added value of the San
Raffaele “system” (Scientific Institute, Hospital belonging to the San Donato Hospital Group and University) is the opportunity to transfer
research data straight to the patient’s bedside.
Cutting-edge training, student participation in healthcare and research work, internationalisation and an interdisciplinary approach are
the Faculty’s strong points.
The Vita-Salute San Raffaele University Faculty of Medicine and Surgery is an innovative, modern School of Medicine that is open to the
world of science and the evolution of scientific knowledge. Another fundamental aspect is the doctor’s training with regard to relations
with the patient.
