Our friend Mohammad Saeed, a new student in Padua, has provided medschool.it with some first images from the English med school that opened this year at the city’s ancient university.

As you can see, some of the classes take place in very old buildings, while other classes are in the university teaching hospital.

Approximately 54 EU-affiliated and nine non-EU affiliated students started their medical education in English in Padua this fall.

We’ll have a full report on the school very soon!
