Course objectives

The course syllabus aims to provide the student with the necessary skills and knowledge for the future understanding of scientific-medical-clinical texts in order to advance in the medical degree course in English, however, at the same time bearing in mind the importance of the Italian Language for Clinical Training.

Therefore, the aim is twofold, that is, to supply all students with the necessary skills in both English and Italian Medical Language and encourage the non-Italian students to further their knowledge of Basic Italian in order to be integrated as much as possible into the Clinical pre-clerkship training.
