A close integration between healthcare, research and training to offer our patients the world’s best affordable care: this is the mission at Humanitas.

Humanitas believes there is a close link between therapy quality, research and training.

Patients are expected to be treated better where research is performed and centres of clinical excellence are also dedicated to training and research. Offering patients the best assistance means attracting talented researchers from all over the world and providing young physicians with an international training.

Humanitas University is built by the hospital, inside the hospital. All the tutors are specifically trained and work as medical doctors or nurses in the hospital. All campus facilities are located within the hospital area.

Studying at Humanitas University, you will get in touch with the operations of a leading hospital and you will be able to interact with medical doctors, researchers and healthcare professionals involved in ambitious research projects.

Humanitas Research Hospital has been cited by the Harvard Business Review and has been studied three times as a Harvard Business School case of management. It was accredited by Joint Commission International for its clinical quality and it is organized along disease-centres.

Humanitas Research Centre is the third in Italy, the 27th in Western Europe and in the Top 6% in the world for the impact of its publications according to SCImago SIR Report 2013. Researchers from 15 foreign countries work in the centre.

TEST_4A26050-300x199

What makes Humanitas Medical and Nursing School unique is the coalescence of established educational practices, rooted in the renowned Italian academic system, combined with state-of-the-art interactive teaching methods.

Humanitas University aims at training medical doctors and nurses able to sustain a self-directed life-long learning process. It stimulates in medical students a special attention to the patient treatment experience and cross-cultural issues related to illness and healing.

Through the use of active learning methods, students are engaged to interact in small groups and develop critical thinking and problem solving skills.

These methods, along with the clinical experience, are supported by a strong tutoring system with a high tutor-to-student ratio. The main state-of-art teaching methods adopted at Humanitas are the Problem-Based Learning, the Case method, the Concept maps and the Simulated patients.
