Surgeon - State Examination

PLEASE NOTE: the State Exam Unit is no longer in charge of assigning GP tutors for the qualifying degree traineeship. For all information, please email:

PLEASE NOTE: graduates in medicine and surgery qualifying under art.102 co.1 of DL 17 March 2020 no. 18, converted into Law No 27 of  April 24, 2020, must contact their Students Affairs Office to collect their degree certificate indicating the 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.
