The University “Campus Bio-Medico di Roma” is a private University, based on Healthcare and Science disciplines that contribute towards a sustainable development and full respect of the environment. The University site is situated in a large green area, in the southern outskirts of Rome, and all its teaching, clinical, and research facilities are linked together on a seventy-five hectare area. There are two Faculties: Medicine and Engineering. They have Bachelor’s Degree courses in Nutrition, Nursing, Radiotherapy and Diagnostics, and Industrial Engineering , and Master’s Degree courses in Bio-Medical Engineering, Chemical Engineering for a sustainable Development, and Medicine. The Faculty of Medicine has 26 specialization schools.
Teaching, healthcare assistance, and research are all characterized by a strong cooperation among doctors and engineers from the various disciplines, addressing the major role of technology in healthcare sciences.
The modern University Hospital that stands next to the teaching facilities is linked to the Italian National Health System and the building for Advanced Research in Biomedicine and Bioengineering.
The relatively small size of the University (about 1,200 students), allowing a close relationship between teachers and students (1/10), the personal tutors available in every stage of the university career, and the modern facilities are some of the factors answering for the high rate of students ending in time (72%) compared to the national average (40%).
The University has a Committee promoting the relationship between education and the work market. International study exchanges take place thanks to European programmes and bilateral agreements with some foreign Universities.
