Single cycle degree (6 years)

Medicine and Surgery

The degree programme

The Medical School of the University of Parma develops its European and international vocation through the Medicine & Surgery course, entirely held in English, in the nearby city of Piacenza, which offers a hospital system that is not shared with other medical courses but will be uniquely dedicated to the new medical degree.

Students will develop a comprehensive medical knowledge, from health promotion to emergency medicine, from applied research to the latest medical technologies to health economics and management.

The course is entirely conceived in an international context.

The use of English will tremendously facilitate students’ communication abilities with patients and colleagues all over the world during their professional activity, both in biomedical research and in clinical medicine.
