The School of Medicine & Surgery (SMS) is a highly innovative program where we combine progressive medical education and patient care with world-class research and outstanding teaching facilities in order to develop Professional Knowledge, Skills, Values and Behaviors.
Its founding principles are based on the importance of integration of the biomedical paradigm for curing disease with the psycho-social and humanist paradigm of compassion for the patients.
In training doctors to meet the health care needs of today and tomorrow, the program focuses on:
- a multidisciplinary, interprofessional and integrated vision of the most common health problems and disease;
- an education aimed at disease prevention and health promotion for individuals and communities;
- building a deep knowledge of the new health care needs, focused not only on the disease, but having a person-centered approach to medicine, within the social context;
- creation and application of technologies, both new and consolidated, which can be used to deepen the understanding of data, the efficient use of tools and the effective use of medical devices.
