Specialisation Schools

Scuole di specializzazione

Admission usually requires students to obtain a specific laurea magistrale or laurea magistrale a ciclo unico (or a comparable foreign degree) and to pass a selective examination. Course length varies in relation to subject fields. They are devised to provide students with knowledge and abilities required for highly qualified the professions (e.g., cardiology, oncology).
