Italian Medical Students at HSL

Students in History of Medicine

On July 26th, 50 enthusiastic and engaging medical students from Italy toured the Health Sciences Library and the History of Medicine Collection.  The students are from medical schools in Bologna, Florence, Pisa, Milan and Salerno and are participating in the Fourth Annual Professor Giovanni Mazzotti Italian-American Conference on Human Anatomy, Research and Healthcare Professions at D’Youville College. They are spending 4 weeks completing the Gross Anatomy component of their medical education which is not currently offered in Italian medical universities.  Italian medical students only learn gross anatomy and dissection from books, models and demonstrations, as there is not an established donor program in their country.  We wish all of them the best in their future careers!
