The Medicine & Technology graduate is a doctor with a great ability to handle new technologies and, therefore, to define patient-taylored therapies. At the same time, the Medicine & Technology graduate acquire biomedical engineer skills, therefore he/she can take part to the development of innovative solutions in the biomedical fields. At the end of the 6 years, the Medicine & Technology graduates can practice the medical profession, specialize, continue their studies for a PhD or to obtain a Master’s Degree in Biomedical Engineering, perform biomedical research or work in the industrial field.
The proposed training course is organized to combine the expertise of the traditional doctor with the essential ones of the biomedical engineer, offering an integrated path between the Master’s Degree Course in Medicine and Surgery (LM/41) and the Three-year Degree Course in Biomedical Engineering (L/8). This integration is foreseen for the entire 6-years period of the course and will be achieved through the alternation of the frequency between the two cultural areas. The first 3 years will be aimed at fostering the integration between the medical and bioengineering disciplines, while the last 3 years will be mainly dedicated to the clinical training, with the possibility to use the integrated approaches learned during the first 3 years.
During the training course, students of Medicine & Technology will also acquire basic knowledge and skills in engineering, through the acquisition of 30 University Educational Credits, which exceed the 360 credits required for the Medicine and Surgery degree. In this way, the course will allow the Medicine & Technology students to request, at the end of the 6 years, the degree in Biomedical Engineering.
The Medicine & Technology graduates can work in the following settings:
