Study Medicine at the Largest Independent International Medical School in Milan, Italy : Humanitas University


Humanitas is a private University located in Milan, Italy, providing a six-year English taught course featuring clinical and laboratory activities in the prestigious Humanitas Research Hospital, equipped with a cutting-edge Simulation Center for hands-on medical training.
Enrollment to Humanitas University is subordinated to passing the Humanitas IMAT test. The date of the Upcoming Test for the Academic year 2020 is yet to be announced.

Humanitas IMAT is the test used exclusively by the HU to select candidates who wish to enroll to the private HU Medical Course. Just like the “public” IMAT, you can take it in more than 30 cities around the globe and it closely resembles the public IMAT’s in question style, topics and rules, as both tests are written by the same company (Cambridge Assessment).

More about the Degree in Medicine and Surgery
The HU Medicine and Surgery degree spans six years, with the first two being dedicated to the study of basic and human sciences, and is entirely taught in English. The following four years are instead devoted to clinical disciplines, such as Internal Medicine, Surgical Specialties and Emergency Medicine.

Starting from the third year, Clerkships in the Humanitas Hospital will be included in the daily routine, thus providing a 360° training for the future physicians. Medical students who are interested in research activities may also take part in the “Virgilio Program” and obtain credits through additional seminars and laboratory activities.

The teaching is performed using a multidisciplinary and interactive approach, where students tackle every topic from several different perspectives so as to acquire a holistic approach to medicine; this translates to different subjects being grouped as integrated courses in order not to lose sight of the general concepts, and the use of case scenarios and problem-based learning.

Quick facts about HU
Admission & Requirements – Entry to the course is restricted by the Ministry of Education. Candidates are required to have obtained a Secondary School Diploma and are selected through the Humanitas IMAT test.

Emphasis on hands-on training – Aside from the Clerkships based at the Humanitas Research Hospital, the HU students will also take advantage of a high-fidelity Simulation Centre provided with high-fidelity rooms.

The campus – located next to the hospital - has an area of 20,000 sqm, and is provided with residences, laboratories, libraries and group study areas, sports facilities and a canteen.

Funding – Each year the university offers a few merit-based scholarships that aim to cover completely or partially the annual tuition fees.

International mobility – HU encourages students to complete part of their training abroad by investing on bilateral international agreements and mobility programs such as Erasmus+.

Living in Milan – Milan is not just the world’s fashion capital, it’s the throbbing heart of the Italian industry and a technologically advanced city. If the city is all about work during the day, after dark it lights up with a rich nightlife.
