Program description

The 6-year international Master’s Degree Program in Medicine and Surgery is entirely taught in English and aims to train students to become doctors practising in a diverse biomedical-social culture. In line with the guiding principles of the Campus Bio-Medico University of Rome, the teaching is entirely patient-centred and community-centred.

Deep knowledge of ethical issues is combined with the use of cutting edge medical technology in order to promote healthcare through a humanistic approach. Providing training with a strong international and cultural component, the programme takes into account the main features characterizing today’s multi-ethnic society with its vast migrant population, paying special attention to diversity and the value of interfaith dialogue, thus creating the basis for understanding the cultural challenges that modern health professionals face.

Program delivery

Problem-based learning

Our teaching methods have a focus on Problem-Based Learning (PBL). This method uses complex real-world problems as the vehicle to stimulate student learning of theoretical concepts and principles as opposed to direct presentation of facts and concepts. Students develop a host of core skills essential for medical doctors, such as critical thinking, problem-solving and communication skills. PBL provides opportunities for working in groups, finding and evaluating research materials, and lifelong learning.

The entire training process of this highly integrated academic programme, from lesson planning to curriculum development, is student-centred. Students begin their professional training at the very start of the programme through continuous contact with patients and colleagues, thus building not only confidence, but also learning to work independently. Students are provided with strong foundations in scientific methodology, statistical analysis and the practice of Evidence Based Medicine (EBM). Students are given direct access to online resources through appropriately selected computer programmes. Direct access develops their ability to use essential research tools and the selected programmes foster their understanding of appropriate methods for dealing with research issues.
