    Opprotunities After Graduating

    Advertisements



    Hi there,

    I'm a Canadian undergraduate student interested in apply to the Vita-Salute San Raffaele University.
    I had some slight trouble getting a response from the university contact so might as well try here.

    I plan on applying to this School after a Masters degree, hopefully.
    However although I seek to become a physician, I would also like to have a career in biomedical science research.
    I was wondering if this would be possible after I would hypothetically graduate from Vita-Salute San Raffaele?

    Also, would I be able to practice in Canada?

    Thanks

    Hi. I'm a current student in the program.

    There are a few Canadian students from Ontario. Off course, you can do research after graduation.

    They are trying to go back to Canada but not sure how hard it is.

    Some students are mature. Not everyone is 18, 19 years old.

    Hi there,

    Thank you for your response.
    Would you mind telling me your experiences at the University?
    Also, are the professors both teaching and research-orientated?

    I enjoy doing Biomedical research in Immunology and would like to know the quality of research publications by the school.

    Sorry if I seem picky.

    Ric40 hi,

    I dont want to be the bad guy of the movie but I want to say only for once one thing: Please check all of the threads about this school.. there are many other options and you have time to make more research about your other options..

    Maybe you would like to look at this.. If you have money for San Raffaele, Irish med schools is much much much better options for that cost, especially if you consider to turn back to Canada:

    edit: I am sick of myself for I write everywhere the same blog's link, but it may be useful for you too:

    my opinion , after a few years now of medschool , with contacts with other schools in europe : forget Italy (I mean english progs of course , if you do well in italian go!) . They have no tradition for training in english. These programs are new and whatever is said , quality will never be the same than in a 10 years old program.I study in romania (tuition 3000 to 5000€) , but some reproach that it may be "easy" , even if things change. If you have more money , and want more challenging :
    poland , bulgary, hungary , rep cz ,croatia (beware not in EU but zagreb is just excellent school) : they are medschools 10 times better and worth than this obscure english section in san raffaele. tuition beeing from 7000 to 12000€ from what I know .St charles for instance has good recognition in USA , ask US students I can't tell more. And visit forums.
    But SRaffaele is really not worth. why even trying , there's no point .... you want to play you future on bets about "is it going to close or not etc..." knowing that now TRANSFERTS WITHIN EU are almost impossible after 2nd year (programs are full ,and they become more carefull about local language proficiency)

    True. Eastern medical schools have run a longer period of English taught programs.

    But the quality of education can not be compared by just the length. For example, Cornell Univeristy opened a medical school in Qatar. Although it's a new school, I'm sure it's better than almost all Easter EU med schools. It has things to do with funding, quality of professors (and off course their English proficiency), medical equpments? and a number of other factors.

    Tomorrow the prosecutors of Milan will decide about San Raffaele. Hope there will be a good news and I hope I can continue school here.

    But San Raffaele is cheaper than Irish med school. San Raffaele is 18000 year while med schools in Ireland cost at least 30,000

    Yes yes.. you're right Sushi.. I misremembered obviously.. and if San Raffaele is sucking the blood of the students (too high!), Irish ones are sucking all of the bodily fluids (surrealistically high!!! I remembered back).. HÖÖÖRRP!!!
