Surgeon - State Examination

NOTICE: graduates in medicine and surgery qualifying under art.102 co.1 of DL 17 March 2020 no. 18 (June 2020 and subsequent sessions) must contact the Students Affairs Office to collect their degree certificate indicating the contextual professional qualification.


The Legislative Decree n. 18, March 17, 2020, introduced new regulations about the procedure on professional qualification for Surgeons.

Article 102, clause 1, establishes that the single-cycle Master Degree in Medicine and Surgery – Classe LM/41, qualifies to work as a surgeon, subject to successful eligibility for the pregraduate internship (as per MIUR Decree, May 9, 2018, n.58, Article n.3)

The same article, clause 2, establishes that graduates in Medicine and Surgery, whose internship was not carried out during their studies, can qualify by successfully attending a postgraduate internship (as per MIUR Decree, October 19, 2001, n.445, postgraduate internship)

Therefore the exam previously scheduled for April 7, 2020, or any other future exams, won't be held.
