The curriculum of the San Raffaele International MD Program is a solid but innovative curriculum based on two initial preclinical years which take a solid in-depth look at the basic-sciences needed for the medical profession, as well as at the human sciences required to develop an effective doctor-patient relationship.
The preclinical years are followed by three clinical years which aim to develop articulate medical skills both at theoretical and practical level. The sixth, and final, year will be entirely dedicated to the preparation of a thesis and to the acquisition of specialist notions that will facilitate access to residencies and post-graduate programs.
A personalized curriculum: in addition to the core subjects, students will be able to personalize their academic careers choosing from a wide range of tailored activities and insights
English is the official language for lessons, practical activities and exams. Italian language courses will be organized during the first years both to facilitate every day life in Italy and also to enable interaction with patients during the clinical years.
The total number of credits for the six- year medical degree course is 360 which are organized according to the IMDP General Study Plan.
