Tutoring sessions are organised every year for selected courses. The schedule is usually communicated by the coordinator of the course. Tutors are available to give seminars on selected topics, provide interactive education for small groups (10-20 students), assist with new and difficult material, and advise about study methods and practice exams. Attendance is generally not mandatory but highly recommended.
A number of courses offer practical sessions. In fact, the new Harvey syllabus has seen the number of laboratory practicals increase in order to provide students with first-hand experience of key advances in laboratory medicine. Coupled with an extensive programme of teaching seminars addressing major areas of contemporary medical research with high impact on medical practice, these steps will educate the new generation of physicians to a rigorous, scientific understanding of the causes of disease, the mechanisms of disease development and progression and rational approaches to prevention and cure. The schedule is usually communicated by the coordinator of the course.
The curricular internship is an experience that takes place outside the University, during the academic career. It aims at fostering a first direct contact of the student with workplaces, as well as at integrating studies with practical training. After the curricular internship, a specific number of credits is obtained (it varies according to each degree course).
