Thesis scheduling and modules

In order to graduate, students must present an original thesis under the supervision of a Professor or Tutor. The activity is known as Degree Internship (or Internato di Laurea). The title awarded upon gradution is that of “Dottore Magistrale” (Doctor of Medicine comparable to a Master’s Degree or US M.D.), in accordance with the BOLOGNA PROCESS.

The thesis will carry the original signature of the Tutor and must be submitted (in print and on CD) to the SEGRETERIA STUDENTI at least 30 days before graduation together with the University green libretto.

The first Graduation Ceremony of our Degree Course in Medicine and Surgery is expected in July 2018


Students intending to carry out their degree internship within a specific structure must submit a formal request to the Director of that structure together with a curriculum vitae (i.e. a list of exams passed, marks, optional attended activities, training periods in laboratories or clinics or any other activity performed for training purposes) at least 6 months before the thesis discussion. After consultation with colleagues and having ascertained the availability of positions, the Director of the structure approves the request and assigns the responsibility for monitoring and certifying.

To be eligible to take the Degree exam, students must:

  • have followed all the courses and have passed all the exams;
  • have obtained a total of 360 credits in the course of the six years (for a total of 5500 hours);
  • have delivered to the Segreteria Studenti a) an application to the Rector at least 6 months before the thesis session; b) an electronic and printed (and signed) copy of the thesis at least 30 days before the Degree session.
