The single-cycle Master's Degree in Medicine and Surgery is designed to train surgeons at an initial professional level with a valid biomedical-psycho-social preparation. The successful graduate will gain a multidisciplinary and integrated view of the most common problems of health and disease, with professional training oriented toward the community, the territory and prevention, with a humanistic approach. This specific mission responds in a more adequate way to the new needs of care and health, as it is focused not only on the disease but also, and above all, on the patient, considered in an entirety of body and psyche, and inserted in a social context of high complexity in continuous growth and evolution.

The first two years of the 6-year course focus on the acquisition of skills in preclinical basic disciplines; then, from the 3rd year, by that of clinical disciplines combined with practice, with tutorial teaching activities in small groups in affiliated hospitals. At the end of the course, the student will have acquired 360 CFUs, of which 60 are collected in professional training which itself includes 15 CFU of practical-evaluative internship enabling the exercise of the profession of Surgeon (ministerial decrees 58/2018 and 8/2020).

Graduates in medicine and surgery can work as physician - surgeon in various clinical, health and biomedical professional roles and fields. The course therefore prepares graduates for a career as a surgeon in its various functional forms. The master's degree in Medicine and Surgery is also a requirement for admission to Postgraduate Schools in the medical sector.
