The overall objectives are pursued using a teaching approach designed to examine health issues in depth in a holistic manner, taking account of the influence of the surrounding chemical - physical, biological and social environment.
The aim of the single - cycle Master’s Degree programme in Medicine and Surgery is to educate, help and support future medical practitioners with professional knowledge enriched by a multidisciplinary and integrated view of the most common issues related to health and illnesses.
The scope of this programme is oriented towards the community and the regional area, with specific focus on prevention and wellbeing.
Skills and attributes that graduates will exhibit include the following:

One outstanding feature of the programme is the complete integration of basic and clinical sciences.
This is achieved through constant use of a multi-disciplinary approach and early involvement in patient management. In addition, not only is there an emphasis on medical anthropology and bioethics, there is also focus
on fine-tuning communication skills to deal with patients and their families which is an essential part of the six years of teaching.

The programme provides a strong foundation as well as all-round theoretical and practical competence. Students also acquire skills for independent decision-making and are trained to deal effectively with health issues from the viewpoint of prevention, diagnosis, prognosis and treatment.
