Monza is a very nice town in the middle of northern Italy, 15 km north-east of Milan. Although it's quite a small city (it has
about 120 000 inhabitants), it's one of the most important cities in the Lombardy region of Italy and a county town since
2010. It is worldwide best known for its Grand Prix motor racing circuit, the Autodromo Nazionale of Monza, which host every September a Formula1 race.
Very close to the hospital, there is Monza Park, one of the biggest walled parks in Europe. Inside of it you can find the Royal Villa of Monza.
The city center is a nice place to hang out, meet people, do some shopping and have a look to the Cathedral, the Arengario and the historical buildings.
Milano is easily accessible with trains, busses and underground.
Day trips can be organized to Como lake, Maggiore lake, Verona, Venice, Liguria (5 Terre and Genua), the Alpes, Turin, Padua and many more places.
Departments are all available, except for Psychiatry.
Anyway, not all the departments shown us the same availability, it depends on how many students are already attending an internship there at the moment and on the period of the year (in July not all the ambulatories are working).
We will try to respect your favourite choice of ward, but please mind some thecnical problems can occur.
To attend some specific wards (for example ophtalmology) it could be usefull to have already passed the exam.
Some excellences our hospital is proud of are Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Hematology (it is also possible to arrange an attendance of the labs where a drug as Imatinib was developed), Pulmonology, Infectious Diseases, and many more.
The projects we offer are:
1) experimental models for xenotransplantation studies: porcine endothelial cells in vitro and genetically modified mouse models
2) Isolation and Characterization of TLQP-21 receptors
The researchers and professors in the labs are very pleased to have students working with them, and if a congress occurs while you are staying here, it is also possible that they decide to bring you with them and the PhDs.

Duomo di Monza
The most important religious architecture of the city, it is located in the main square of the centre. It was built between
XIV and XVII century and it is dedicated to Saint John the Baptist. It's famous because of its precious Treasure: among
all the jewels, Queen Teodolinda's Iron Crown, that, according to the tradition, contains one of Christ's crucifixion spikes.
One of the most important monuments of the city, the mansion was built during Austrian domination in Milan, as a
symbol of prestige of the Asburgic Court. It was built for Ferdinand of Austria to spend there his summer months. From
the beautiful gardens (which include an important rose garden) of the villa, you can enter into the park of Monza. In
summer, it hosts an outdoor cinema.
Parco di Monza
One of the biggest European historical parks (it is the fourth biggest fenced park in Europe). It is a beautiful combination
of nature, offering amazing landscapes, and historical buildings and it hosts furthermore the F1 circuit Autodromo
Nazionale of Monza.
It is the ancient town hall of Monza, built in XIII century. It is located in the historical centre, at the crossroads of the main
Ponte dei Leoni
Historical bridge on Lambro, the river which crosses the city.
Every day you can find different kind of markets in the streets and squares of the centre. The second sunday of each
month there is also the antique market.
The most important is, with no doubts, La Rinascente (even if the one in Monza it's smaller than the one in Milan). This is
an Italian chain-store comparable to English Harrods or to French Lafayette. La Rinascente of Monza is located in a nice
square with a fountain, just at the beginning of the shopping streets in the centre.
Monza is full of nice shops: from the trendy one to the classical, from cheapest to most expensive ones, from most
known chains to little italian brands.
