Other information

The English teachers at the Faculty of Medicine usually have less medical knowledge that learners therefore are perceived as lay people as opposed to 'expert' students.

At the Physiotherapy Course, University of Parma, this issue is overcome thanks to the fact that the teacher has both the degrees in Physiotherapy and Foreign Languages

Students’ duties

Attend all classes regularly. If a student misses more than 25% of the classes without a clear reason she/he will not be admitted to the final exam without a special permission by the Dean.
