5. What are the questions on the humanitarian vocation of the university about?
“… relevant issues for the lack of health professionals in many developing countries, pathologies spread in these countries, international bodies tasked with facing humanitarian problems, leading figures who have contributed to these fields and inherent topics. The required competence on these issues is not specific: a mere knowledge deriving from reading newspapers and other media which provide updated news on these topics will be sufficient. In other words these questions will be aimed to bring to light the interest of the candidates towards the above mentioned topics; where such interest exists, the candidates will probably have read and delve into these issues, although on an informative and not specialized basis.”
In other words, a thorough knowledge is not required. It is highly valued the interest, the inquisitiveness, the attention of the candidate to the sanitary issues in the Developing Countries, the humanitarian policies and the activities implemented by the international community.
