The MEDschool.it website was created in 2011 by Alex, then a medical student in Pavia, to spread the word about the public Italian medical schools that had started to teach medicine in English, and to help candidates navigate through the application process and admission exams.

Today the website is collaboratively run by students from various English medical schools around Italy, as well as other editors. The students blog about their lives and their medical schools.

This website was created purely on a voluntary basis to give a genuine “insiders’ look” at the various English taught medical courses in Italy. Are you considering joining and blogging about your medical course? Read how here!
