Very interesting experience in Humanitas University

I have just finished my second-year experience here in Humanitas University and I'm really happy about my experience. Why? Well, because in Humanitas University you can find a welcoming and international environment on a state-of-the-art campus, with all the services you need. Many places where study alone or with classmates, and many others where have rest or fun. there are two student houses on campus where you can stay all year round.
Moreover I find the medical school program is very complete, full of many different activities, practical and theoretical. In the University there is also a amazing Simulation Center where you can learn many different technical skills, but also how to manage a complete scenario in an environment like the real hospital one, or a surgical procedure.
There is also a strong connection with the Humanitas hospital and with the doctors who work there, this makes learning much more interesting and complete!

Amazing!

My first year in Humanitas University has been the best study abroad-experience of my life: if I had the chance to start again this year right now, I would do it without hesitation. I would say that Humanitas University is just a perfect place to study: I had the opportunity to learn lots of new things, improve my knowledge and to do lots of hands-on experiences (the Simulation Center is just impressive with its cutting edge technology). I really want to become a doctor one day and I have to thank all the Humanita's professors and doctors because they have really inspired me.
I am so thankful that I had this opportunity, and I am so excited because everything has just started: I have lots of things to descover here!
Thank you HU!

What would you improve about this program?
I would like to increase the library opening hours.

My Humanita Exeperience

I am a second year student of Humanitas University of Milan, Italy and for several aspects, I think this is a great medicine programme.
The relationships I have developed with staff and students from all part of the world, facilities and environment are wonderful.
The classes are held at the new Campus (it was built on 2017) and in the advanced Simulation Centre.
I have also had the opportunity to follow the lessons of very well prepared teachers and tutors. All of them are experts in their respective fields; they are practicing clinicians or world class researchers and very often both. Their English level is good, and it has never been an issue in teaching.
The teaching methods n general are based on a peer-to-peer approach and we study a lot on real clinical cases.
Next year (at the 3th one), I’ll also start my clerkship inside Humanitas Hospital, one of the most important Italian general hospital which is located 5 min from the university.
In general, Milan is a great city to live in, but finding housing is quite difficult. To solve this problem, this year the university open its own student house inside the Campus, few steps from the university. I’m not living there but I heard the accommodations are comfortable and the atmosphere is very nice.

What would you improve about this program?
More social activities in the campus. More connections with the city centre of Milan

Thank you Humanitas :-)
Last month i've done my first experience in the Mario Luzzatto Simulation Center, with advanced dummy (his name is AL), we have simulating some different scenari and this experience it was be very helpful to understand some particular aspect about this fantastic but important job.
Milan is a wonderful city, and the italian people are very nice and fun, the food is fantastic!
I hope to continue this experience until the degree and after that come back in US to start a new experience.
