Università Cattolica’s MD Medicine and Surgery provides the scientific basis and the theoretical and practical training essential for the exercise of the medical profession internationally. Students develop all the technical competencies required to operate independently and responsibly in the medical sector. The overall objectives are pursued using a teaching approach designed to examine health issues in depth in a holistic manner, taking account of the influence of the surrounding chemical - physical, biological and social environment.

The degree features a complete integration of basic and clinical sciences, achieved through a multidisciplinary approach and an early involvement in patient management, including both ethical issues and legal responsibilities, which are at the basis of the profession. In addition, medical anthropology, bioethics and medical humanities will be emphasized, as well as the ability to communicate with the patient and the family.

The curriculum is designed also to help students prepare for the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) Step 1 and Step 2.
