What is the objective of the course? What is it?
What does it train you for?

The Master Degree Single Cycle in Medicine and Surgery, Technology specialisation, (MED-IT) first and foremost, trains students for the medical doctor profession. Medical doctors treat and cure the most common and prevalent dysfunctions, diseases and lesions in the population; develop and implement early diagnosis of serious diseases in patients at risk; prescribe drugs and non-drug treatments, clinical examinations for diagnosis, hospital admissions and visits to specialists; monitor the course of diseases and their treatment; demand and implement preventive measures for patients or the organisations they work in. In addition, the course is designed to train students with a clear awareness and vision of the potential offered to the medical field by technological advances and the correct use of the most advanced and innovative technologies in the medical field, from prevention to diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation

What do you learn?

The Medicine and Surgery Master Degree programme includes the study of bio-medical and medical subjects, as well as a thorough knowledge of English and psychology based on a medical-patient approach. In addition, in order to align this programme to core and specialist knowledge of biomedical engineering, an in-depth study of subjects such as mathematical analysis, physics, chemistry, computer science, biochemistry and statistics is included in the programme. Specific teaching aimed at providing students with an engineering education enabling them to deal with complex computer analyses and plan technological applications in the medical field complements medical subject matter Attendance at preclinical and clinical internships is mandatory. Practical evaluation internships in the medical area for the state exam (TPVES) within the curricular course of the Master's Degree in Medicine and Surgery allows students to achieve a degree in medicine and a full license to practice medicine at the same time. In addition, during or at the end of the course, students may acquire 40 CFU (ECTS) from subjects in the Biomedical Engineering degree course, and after passing a final examination, obtain a three-year degree in Biomedical Engineering

What can you do with it?

  •  Universities and research centres;
  •  Hospitals and specialist national health system centres;
  •  Public and private clinics, national and international health and humanitarian organisations.
  • A Master degree is also a requirement for admission to the Medical Speciality Schools.
  • Thanks to the skills acquired in the engineering/technological field, doctors trained in MED-IT (who are also awarded a three-year degree in Biomedical Engineering) can work not only in the traditional fields of medicine but also in a wide variety of sectors, including new medical and pharmacological device design.
