Corso di Medicine and surgery - Università degli Studi di Parma
The University of Parma is among the oldest academic institutions in Europe. After the foundation of the Palatine School by Charlemagne and Alcuin of York in 781 A.D., on March 13th 962 A.D. emperor Otto I conferred to the Bishop of Parma, Uberto, the power to order and elect legal leaders, with an Empire-wide authority. The historian Ernest Dümmler defined Parma a 'celebrated seat of learning' since the 11th century, attracting students from countries beyond the Alps, and its growing popularity was so high that Napoleon maximised its jurisdiction.
The Medical School of the University of Parma has now decided to develop this European and international vocation by opening a novel Medicine & Surgery course, entirely held in English, in the nearby city of Piacenza, which offers a hospital system that is not shared with other medical courses but will be uniquely dedicated to the new medical degree.
Students will develop a comprehensive medical knowledge, from health promotion to emergency medicine, from applied research to the latest medical technologies to health economics and management.
