The Medicine Course at Turin
The MD program in Medicine and Surgery at the University of Turin is taught in English, and takes place at the San Luigi Gonzaga University Hospital, which has a range of teaching facilities. Through this there’s a simple route to the integration of students into clinical areas, as the medical school has a campus feel to it, with all students’ work and learning centred around the hospital.
The course is six years long and is broken up into two semesters per year, for a total of 12 semesters. The program begins with core scientific knowledge, covering Biology, Chemistry and Physics, as well as basic medical knowledge. Over time more medical and clinical knowledge and hands-on experience is added. Interactive teaching methods are deployed to ensure that students learn through a mixture of ways, and have to take responsibility for their own learning. Students can easily communicate with both other medical students and with faculty, as all learning takes place in the same location.

Turin: City Overview for Students
Turin is perfect for students looking for a large and dynamic city in which to live and learn. It’s the third largest city in Italy, in the North West of the country, near the Alps. It’s known as a beautiful city, surrounded by a historical crown called the Corona Delle Delizie.
The city has fewer tourists, and fewer famous tourist attractions, than others of the largest Italian cities. However, it’s a very cultural and cultured place, and students are prioritised by the city, which has put policies in place to ensure that they have as good a lifestyle and experience here as possible.
There are many local museums, and the university takes an active interest in them, helping them – in turn making them an attraction for its students.
In terms of social activities, there’s a huge amount to see and do – not surprising given the scale of the city. There are also city-wide festivals of note like the Torino International Street Theatre Festival.
In terms of affordability, the cost of living is very high, especially when compared to Southern Italian cities. It’s comparable with Milan or Rome, with students paying around 1400 Euros per month on average for their living expenses.
