UniCamillus

Introduction

Who we are

UniCamillus intends to prepare excellent healthcare workers with particular professional attention being placed on the pathologies coming from the countries of the Southern part of the world.

The university is mainly aimed at non-EU youngsters. Students who can enroll are Italian and EU students who show a sensitive and particular scientific interest towards health issues such as malaria, TBS and aids which still affect a large part of the world.

According to a recent World Bank and World Health Organization (WHO) Report, half of the world's population has no access to basic health services. According to the study, every day more than 800 women die from causes related to pregnancy and childbirth. And nearly 20 million children do not receive the vaccinations they need, thus running the risk of dying from diseases such as diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis and measles. Even when health services are available, using them can mean going bankrupt from a financial point of view.

Degree Courses

UniCamillus offers a 6-year degree in Medicine and Surgery and further five 3-year Health Professions degrees (Physiotherapy, Nursing, Obstetrics, Biomedical Laboratory Techniques and Radiology, Diagnostic Imaging and Radiotherapy Techniques), taught in English.

The following slots are available to candidates for the academic year 2018/2019:

  • Degree Course in Medicine and Surgery: 65 slots non-EU and 55 slots EU students;
  • Degree Course in Physiotherapy: 35 slots non-EU and 30 slots EU students;
