Last month, I published a detailed piece about the English med school in at the University of Milan-Bicocca. That article required hours and hours of research, because I hadn’t been able to find any current students to ask or blog about their experiences. In that piece, I raised some questions about the school — things that weren’t clear after all my research. These questions included, among others:

  • Where exactly are which classes held? Bergamo? Milan-Bicocca? Monza?
  • How do students transport between these campuses? Where do they live, and how do they socialize, when the school is so spread out?
  • What exactly is the nature of the relationship between Bicocca and the University of Surrey, England, highly touted in the school’s marketing materials?
  • What exactly takes place in what the school calls “clerkships”, during the first and second years, which don’t appear to fit the traditional definition of a med school clerkship?

Since I published that article, I have now heard from a few students at the school, who have begun clarifying the answers to these questions. I’m looking forward to publishing what I’ve learned. First, however, I need to get approval from my supervising editor.

In the meantime, one student has supplied me with many more pictures of the school and its surroundings. Enjoy!
