Lessons and internships


The course is two years: the fifth semester of the fifth year, the sixth semester of the year with frontal lessons and theoretical-practical didactic activity (workshops and lanes). The second half of the 6th year is entirely devoted to practical activities in the lane. Optional courses with seminars, monograph courses and essentially internships in the department (variables from 15 days to 1 year) are also provided.
The students, divided into two channels depending on the number (even and odd), are followed by the same General Surgery professor at the 5th and 6th year: therefore every teacher will take the course one year at V and one year at VI.
