The mission of the six year Degree – single cycle – Course is identified with the training of a doctor with an international professional profile, characterized by a multidisciplinary and integrated vision of health and disease problems, with an education oriented towards the community, the territory, the global health challenges and fundamentally towards disease prevention and health promotion and with a humanistic culture in its implications of medical interest. This specific mission is centered not only on the disease, but above all on the sick person, considered in his/her globality of soma and psyche and within the social context. The objectives, whose achievement constitute the qualifying background of the Doctor to be formed include:
In-depth knowledge of methodological fundaments which are necessary for a correct approach at scientific medical research, joined with an autonomous use of computer-based technologies which are indispensable in the clinical practice.
This didactic form includes: – lectures: dealing with one specific topic that is identified by a title and performed by a teacher with the help of computing and/or multimedia supports based on a predefined calendar and given to students enrolled to a specific course year and divided into small groups; – seminars: didactic activities with the same characteristics as lectures but carried out contemporarily by many teachers with different competences and, as such, noted in the lesson registers in each one of them.
During the last period of the course, when non Italian students will have acquired sufficient command of the language, some courses may be taught in Italian. The frontal teaching activity is always provided by teaching staff (first and second level professors, researchers and professors).
It deals with interactive didactic activities aimed at small groups of students and coordinated by a tutor whose task is that of facilitating the students in the acquisition of knowledge, abilities and behavioral models. Learning mainly occurs through stimuli deriving from problem solving and the use of methodological skills needed to resolve them and taking decisions as well as through the direct and personal use of actions (gesture and relational) in practical exercises and/or attending clinical departments, surgeries, territorial facilities and research laboratories. The function of the tutor can also be entrusted to non-university personnel of recognized qualification in the specific training sector, according to the recruitment methods provided by the University regulations.
A) Teaching courses. The integrated teaching courses are held by one or more teachers
in function to the specific objectives assigned to the course. The specific objectives of the
individual courses that are contained in the exam programs and their programming are
proposed annually by the course teachers within the start date of the enrolments for the
new academic year.
B) Professional activities. During the three year degree course, the student is required to
acquire the professional specifications in the nursing field by carrying out internships in
facilities identified by the degree course council (CCL) and in the defined periods. The
internship can also be done in developing countries.
C) Elective activities. The degree course council organizes the offer of elective didactic
activities that are created with lectures, seminars, interactive courses with small groups
among which the student is able to exercise their own personal option until achieving an overall number of 6 credits. Each student autonomously chooses the elective activities
among the didactics supplied.
D) Training activities for the preparation of the final exam.
In order to be admitted to the final degree examination, the student must prepare an original thesis under the guidance and responsibility of a professor of the Faculty of Medicine as a supervisor. This activity is defined as a “graduation internship”. The student can perform the thesis internship at any Faculty structure or affiliated with the Faculty. It can also be carried out at facilities that are not affiliated under the responsibility of the supervisor. The thesis supervisor professors are first or second level professors or adjunct researchers or professors.
Graduates in Medicine and Surgery will carry out the activity of M.D.-surgeon in the various clinical, health and biomedical roles and fields. The employment opportunities normally offered to graduates in Medicine and Surgery are represented by:

Teaching method. a) Formal didactics This didactic form includes: – lectures: dealing with one specific topic, identified by a title and carried out by a teacher together with the help of I.T. and/or multimedia devices and based on the predefined timetable and given to students regularly enrolled to a determined year of study course as well as being divided into small groups; – seminars: didactic activities with the same characteristics as lectures but contemporarily carried out by many teachers with different skills, and as such, noted in the lesson registers in each one of them; During the last period of the course, when non Italian students will have acquired sufficient command of the language, some courses may be taught in Italian. The lectures are always given by the teaching staff (first and second level professors, researchers and contracted professors). b) Non-formal didactics It deals with interactive didactic activities addressed to small groups of students and coordinated by a tutor whose task is that of facilitating the student in learning the know-how, skills and behavioral models. Learning is mainly done through the stimuli from problem analysis and through the mobilization of methodological skills and decision making needed to solve them as well as through the direct and personal use of action (gesture and relational) in the contexts of practical exercises and/or attendance in clinics, surgeries, territorial structures and research labs. The function of the tutor can also be entrusted to non-university staff who have the recognized qualification in that specific education sector and is in accordance with the recruitment process foreseen by the university’s regulations. A) Teaching courses. The integrated teaching courses are held by one or more teachers in function to the specific objectives assigned to the course. The specific objectives of the single courses that are contained in the exam programs and their programming are proposed annually by course teachers within the starting date of the enrollments to the new academic year. B) Professional activity. The student is required to acquire specific professional skills in the field of internal medicine, general surgery, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, as well as medical-surgical specialties via the facilities identified by the faculty council or the master’s degree course with an overall number of 60 university credits. The role of the tutor for training internships carried out in the non-university structures can be taken by highly qualified staff and is dependent on the convention with the facility. The internship can also be held in developing countries. C) Elective activities. The Council of the master’s degree organizes the offer of the elective didactic activities which can be carried out through lectures, seminars and interactive courses with small groups among which the student practices their own personal option until they achieve an overall number of 8 university credits. Each student autonomously chooses the elective activities among the didactic offers. D) Educational activities for final exam preparation. In order to be admitted to take the final exam for the degree, the student has to prepare a thesis elaborated in an original way and under the guidance and responsibility of a lecturer in the faculty of medicine and surgery. This activity is defined as the “degree internship”. The student can carry out the thesis internship in any of the facilities of the faculty or those in convention with the faculty. The thesis internship can also be done in non-convention facilities under the responsibility of the lecturer. The lecturers are first or second level professors, researchers or contracted professors.
The prerequisites needed by students who wish to enroll in the Degree course in Medicine and Surgery are:
Possession of a study title that meets one of the following criteria:
Candidates enrolled in the last year of secondary school can also participate in the selections at the state and private school institutions of the Italian education system or at a foreign secondary education institution that allows the achievement of a valid qualification for admission to courses of higher education of the Italian system with the condition, if the test results are positive, to present the diploma or qualification just obtained at the time of the subsequent enrolment to the courses, under penalty of exclusion from the list of admitted candidates. Students already in possession of an academic degree (obtained in Italy or abroad) and those who come from another degree course or university degree are required to observe the same procedures indicated in this call for applications and take part in the admission test.
Entry to the Master’s Degree Course in Medicine and Surgery and to the other courses of Medical School is regulated by a multiple choice written admission test and a speaking test. The UCAT is developed and delivered by the UKCAT Consortium. Information regarding test content and how to prepare for the test can be found here (www.ukcat.ac.uk). In February 2019, the UKCAT Consortium are changing the name of their admission test from UKCAT to UCAT. From 1stFebruary 2019, the website will change to www.ucat.ac.uk. The test content will remain the same. UCAT is a computer-based test that must be taken at certified test centres and lasts two hours. The test consists of five separate sections to be passed within a set time and each consists of a series of multiple choice questions.
No. of Questions
|Verbal Reasoning Establishes the ability to critically evaluate information presented in written form.|
300 – 900
|Decision-Making Establishes the ability to make decisions and make correct judgments using complex information.|
300 – 900
|Quantitative Reasoning Establishes the ability to critically evaluate information presented in numerical form.|
300 – 900
|Abstract Reasoning Establishes the ability to use convergent and divergent reasoning to infer relationships between different elements and information.|
300 – 900
|Situational Assessment It measures the ability to understand real situations and identify the critical factors and the most appropriate behavior to face them.|
The overall assessment is obtained by summing the scores of the Verbal Reasoning, Decision-making, Quantitative Reasoning, Abstract Reasoning sections. The “Situational Assessment” section is not relevant for the final score. UniCamillus will draw up the final ranking based on the results of the UCAT test.
UniCamillus draws up the final ranking based on the result achieved in the UCAT test.
The admission test consists of a written test. The UniCamillus admission test consists of a written test in English and composed of multiple choice questions of logical, quantitative, verbal and abstract reasoning, which have five response options, among which the candidate must identify only one answer, discarding the wrong, arbitrary or less probable conclusions.

Actors of the Quality Assurance process
The Quality Assurance Group (QA) is chaired by the Director of the Degree Course or by the President, who is the Responsible for the Quality of the Course; it ensures the proper and regular performance of the activities, in coordination with the Academic Quality Assurance and with the QA referents of the University.
The QA contributes to the design, implementation and verification of the activities of the Degree Course
The Review Group performs the following functions:
a) identifying the improvements, reporting the person in charge and specifying the deadlines and the indicators that allow verifying the degree of implementation;
b) verifying the achievement of the objectives pursued or identifying any reasons for a failure or partial achievement;
c) drafting the Annual Monitoring Report (AMR), which is sent to the Evaluation Unit and the Academic Quality Assurance through the University Quality Office.
During the statutory transitional phase, in order to facilitate the start-up phase of the QA System, UniCamillus considered it functional to choose the appointment at the level of each Degree Course of the only Quality Assurance Group, which is also called to perform the functions of the Review Group.
The QA has the task of monitoring the progress of the Degree Course management and of drafting the Annual Monitoring Report and the cyclical review report (RCC) in collaboration with the President of the Teaching Committee.
