“The teachers have taken into account the needs expressed by the third year students of the one-cycle certificate course in Medicine and Surgery, regarding the need to undertake an internship in Medicine and Semiotics,” from Domenico BriscoHead of the Certificate Course in Medicine and Surgery.

“The legitimate expectations of students, however, must be framed in The context of a health emergency Determined by the pandemic, the course of which unfortunately was not easy to predict and would have included national safety guidelines for people often exposed to sudden acceleration and to involve structures that support large-scale training activities. These indicators had inevitable consequences for the achievement of educational activities as well as for internships, being suspended or slow for a long time, continues Briscoe. He adds: “The return to face-to-face activities has taken place gradually, especially in hospitals, which are in any case subject to specific safety rules and requirements, which are not always easily sustainable. The restoration of training activities at Semeiotics is also related, with the aim of balancing training needs, and the resumption of all training activities in the field of biomedicine, which will occupy exceptionally the entire summer. Anyway, for Semeiotics training, activities came back into existence Dedicated remote initiatives have been added by teachers, also with the help of an acquired and customized learning platform, in order to ensure that students acquire the appropriate knowledge and skills for their training.
