The physician today

The course trains physicians with a biomedical-psycho-social culture, providing them with a multidisciplinary and integrated view of the most common problems of health and disease: a training oriented to the community, the local area and fundamentally to the prevention of disease and the promotion of health.
Physician training must respond to health and treatment needs and consider scientific and technological developments in the field.

Specific goals

  • the person: training physicians with a biomedical-psycho-social culture
  • the prevention: educating about health and disease prevention
  • the disease: providing a multidisciplinary view
  • the care: educate on integrated therapies, consider complementary medicines, have sensitivity to interracial, gender, chronic patient, palliative care, and end-of-life issues
  • the research: develop self-learning skills, the proper approach to scientific research and the use of indispensable technologies in clinical practice

Course structure

The Course provides 360 CFUs over 6 years and is divided into 36 integrated courses, which group together teachings that are homogeneous in content.
. The educational project includes:

  • basic sciences: biological knowledge, structure and functioning of the human organism in its normal state for the purpose of health maintenance
  • human sciences: indispensable background of the physician, integrated with demo-anthropological, ethical and socio-economic sciences
  • clinical and methodological medical practice: implemented through the use of tutorial teaching, simulation, case studies and role-playing. Fundamental is attendance in hospital wards and outpatient clinics in the area
  • .
  • research: participation in basic and clinical research programs, both during the course of study and during the preparation of the dissertation

The teaching process makes use of the most modern teaching tools.
