Studying Medicine at the University of Milan-Bicocca

IMAT Preparation Specialists

This medical school is sometimes also known as Bergamo, which is a little confusing – however, it makes more sense when you realise that the course is taught between Milan and Bergamo. However, the school is actually the result of three universities working together; Milan Bicocca, Bergamo, and Surrey, England. The three created this course, which is the second most difficult to get into in Italy (after IMS Milan).

Milan-Bicocca Medical School: Overview

The school describes its degree as being ‘uniquely positioned to meet the evolving needs of tomorrow’s health care professionals’ and it certainly is forward thinking, especially compared to some of the more old-fashioned schools in Italy. The school prides itself on incorporating clinical experience from the second year onwards, with what it describes as ‘intensive clinical mentoring.’ Additionally, there’s a significant focus on interdisciplinary working and indeed on inter-professional learning, with medical students expected to learn alongside other health professionals and come to realise the value of being open-minded, having a caring attitude, and having a holistic approach to health care needs, amongst other core attributes and values.

Medical Course Overview at Milan-Bicocca

The program seeks to integrate the foundational basic sciences with clinical sciences and professional skills throughout. As stated, it’s forward-thinking and similar to many programs in the UK and US that put a lot of emphasis on early clinical exposure and learning with other members of the interdisciplinary team. Particular emphasis is placed on ‘understanding of health in a global context, [the development of] inter-cultural consciousness and [being] prepared to leverage skills in global health.’ Teaching is primarily done through problem based learning (PBL) which helps students to both learn required knowledge and develop core team-working skills. There are seven major integrated systems that make up the course, which you will learn about throughout your time at the university:
– Cardiovascular and Respiratory System
– Onco-Haematology
– Locomotor System
– Digestive Health
– Endocrine Kidney & Urinary Tract
– Neuroscience
– Woman and Child (Obstetrics Gynaecology, Paediatrics).

Tuition Fees at Milan-Bicocca

As this is a public university, fees are paid in line with the ISEE (Equivalent Economic Status Indicator), a tool designed to assess a family’s economic status. Fees will therefore be anywhere from 158 – 3500 Euros per year, depending on each student’s specific financial situation.

Milan: City Overview for Students

Milan is the second largest city in Italy, home to a vast number of students. As well as this university you will find IMS, the Bocconi, and the Brera Academy. In a large city, student neighbourhoods become important – Navigli and Porta Genova are popular districts for students, as are Porta Romana, and Lambrate –  expect to find bars and restaurants throughout these areas and to feel safe, with plenty of other students around. The city is seen as one of the most international in Italy, and you’ll find the pace of life a bit faster than in the South. Additionally, you’ll find that festivals, tourists, and easy flights to other cities in Europe give Milan the feel of a truly connected and forward-thinking place.

Sadly, Milan is one of the least affordable places to live in Italy. It ranks equal with Rome, and you’ll find living expenses are almost double that of some of the Southern Italian cities. Students will typically pay between 900 to 1400 Euros per month for their living expenses. Remember that this figure does include rent, although is still much higher than the likes of Messina, for example.

Admissions and IMAT Scores for Milan-Bicocca

There are 25 places available for EU students each year, and 13 for those outside the EU. With an IMAT score for EU students of 51.7 and for non-EU students of 42.3, this is one of the most competitive schools in Italy – in fact the school is almost on a par with its rival, IMS Milan.
