Discovering Bicocca Global Health

The world faces a multitude of complex challenges, including political upheavals, humanitarian crises, ecosystem destruction, and the ongoing disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. These challenges have highlighted the critical importance of global health as an interdisciplinary field that is essential to building a sustainable, equitable, and healthy future for all.

Building upon these challenges and our achievements, the Department of Medicine & Surgery of the University of Milano-Bicocca is proud to establish the Bicocca Global Health Center.

The Center leverages the expertise and knowledge of our faculty, researchers, residents, and students to develop innovative and sustainable solutions for addressing global health challenges.

Our multidisciplinary approach and collaboration with our partners enable us to effectively pursue our three main strategic actions: education, research, and capacity building.

Director’s message

“Medicine in the 21st century requires a broad knowledge of health issues faced around the world. Globalization has made it so that no disease can be confined to national borders. Physicians are called upon to address global health concerns; the devastating COVID-19 pandemic is a stark reminder that no community is immune from public health threats.

Bicocca Global Health Center endeavors to rethink the role of the doctor, their social responsibility and the challenges they are called to face. New training is needed, to build not only clinical, but also social and global competences and train young people who want to be doctors.

At University of Milano-Bicocca, we’re embarking on academia – NGO collaboration in the field of global health that can expand the reach and impact of our institutions, serve our respective missions, and improve health outcomes globally. Our philosophy lies in thinking long-term and conceive projects that will reap benefits in years to come.” – Pietro Invernizzi

“The first impression I got is that the students here are considered useful and functional workforce alongside doctors and nurses, they are called to act in the first person with patients. What in Italy is done by doctors or Residents or nurses, here is also required of the student. I think this is the reason why, it seems to me that a Ugandan student is better equipped than an Italian postgraduate in everyday clinical activities.”
