Admission requirements
All the degree courses in Medicine and Surgery of the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery of the University of Milan have programmed access and require an admission test. Upon the Law 264 date 2.8.1999, the test is the same for all Italian public universities offering an international medical curriculum, and takes place on the same day at the same time all over the world. The main focus of the admission test is to examine and judge the fundamentals of scientific knowledge and reasoning. The number of students who can be admitted is defined annually by a Decree of the Ministry of Education and Research (MUR), taking account of the training potential declared by the university on the basis of the teaching and clinical resources and structures available, and also the requirements reported by the Lombardy Region and the Ministry of Health. Candidates who have a High School Diploma, or alternative qualification achieved abroad and recognized as suitable, can be admitted to the single cycle degree courses in Medicine and Surgery. Candidates in eligible positions in the ranking of the admission test must enroll according to the procedure of the university.

The admission test (International Medical Admissions Test, IMAT) is designed by Cambridge Assessment in conjunction with the Italian Ministry of Higher Education and Research. The admission test consists of sixty (60) multiple choice questions with five options (of which only one is correct) on the following topics: general knowledge and logical reasoning; biology; chemistry; physics and mathematics.
