Doctor of Medicine and Surgery

General

Program Description

Medicine has been taught at Sapienza since the founding of the university in 1303. The aim of the program is to educate students to the highest standards of medical practice, train specialized clinicians in patient-centered medicine, and tackle crucial issues concerning the mechanisms, prevention, and treatment of disease. Sapienza places a strong emphasis on developing clinical skills throughout the course of the program and teaching often takes place in one of Sapienza’s three specialist hospitals: Policlinico Umberto I, Sant’Andrea, and Latina. Classes are smaller than most medical schools to allow greater professor-student interaction and foster student self-evaluation, independent thinking, and investigation.
