Medicine at Humanitas University: an international course
Highlight of Humanitas is the internationality of the programs, experts and students, so the course is entirely in English. Foreign students, coming mainly from Great Britain, United States, India, Iran, Canada, Germany, Greece and Taiwan, represent 39% of the students and many of the teachers have a strong foreign experience. In addition, the students are given the opportunity to collaborate with foreign hospitals, research centers and universities and short stays abroad thanks to dedicated travel grants.
A new way of teaching
One of the most important pillars of the Humanitas University training is the practice: from the beginning of the course in Medicine, Humanitas University offers the students the possibility to enter the hospital and, starting from the third year, to do the internship in one of the Humanitas hospitals, as well as to practice in a state-of-the-art simulation centre in order to learn the procedures and the maneuvers in total safety in order to train themselves in the field of communication and teamwork, which aspects have an essential role in the management of the patient.
In addition, the University supports students in dealing with post-graduate studies: preparation for access to specialized schools in Italy and the United States and meetings with foreign organizations to identify, above all, job opportunities.
