Uniquely positioned to meet the evolving needs of tomorrow's health care professionals, University of Milano-Bicocca’s School of Medicine and Surgery (SMS) is a Single Cycle Master’s degree program in partnership with University of Surrey (UK), University of Bergamo and the Papa Giovanni XXIII Hospital that endeavors to prepare graduating physicians for leadership positions in the healthcare sector.

Based in Bergamo, the program has a revolutionary new medical curriculum integrating a rigorous program of basic science education with intensive clinical mentoring right from second year onwards. The program offers a multidisciplinary and inter-professional educational experience fostering an integration of knowledge and skills, open-mindedness, scientific and critical thinking, caring attitude, and a holistic approach to health care needs.

The teaching methodology is based on PBL (Problem Based Learning) that facilitates knowledge acquisition, enhanced group collaboration and team learning across seven major physio-pathological integrated systems:

  • Cardiovascular and Respiratory System
  • Onco-Hematology
  • Locomotor System
  • Digestive Health
  • Endocrine Kidney & Urinary Tract 
  • Neuroscience 
  • Woman and Child (Obstetrics Gynecology, Pediatrics)

The program integrates basic medical sciences and clinical sciences with professional skills and competencies throughout the program. A vast array of speciality training pathways are available after obtaining a master degree qualification in medicine. The course enables students to expand their understanding of health in a global context, develop inter-cultural consciousness and get prepared to leverage their skills in global health in both clinical practice and research.
