The first year medical faculty here is divided into three groups: Italians have two groups each being 150, and there is us and we make almost up to 60. We have our labs at the hospital and most classes in another building. From the next year onward I assume we will have most of our classes at the main teaching hospital, Sant’Orsola-Malpighi and we’ll probably have more contact with the Italian med school from next year onward. Our class is very international, we have people from the US, Venezuela, Israel, Iran, Norway and so many other countries I can’t count now.

The hospital is a gigantic complex here, it’s more like an American college campus. Most of our professors have very good CVs but sometimes it can be difficult to understand the English of some professors. Despite of that they are very enthusiastic to give their best to teach us.
About the exam style: we have both oral and written exams (mostly written) and we can take them as many times as we can. We have 3 exam sessions: January-February, June-July and September-October. We can take an exam twice in each exam session (if we want to). However in order to pass to the next year we must have obtained at least 20 credits out of 60 each year. In addition in order to pass to the Year 4, we must have passed all the exams until the Year 2 and in order to pass to the Year 6 we must have completed all the credits from Year 1 to Year 4.
