Do I need to speak Italian?
You don’t need to know Italian because all of our city managers and most doctors speak English.
We have designed an experience for international students that minimizes language barriers as much as possible.
However, being in Italy means that you may face the challenge of communicating with doctors and patients who don’t speak English.
Including the experience of interacting with non-English speaking doctors and patients can add to the cultural experience, and we don’t want to completely eliminate it.
Doing so would reduce the value of the overall experience and limit the range of shadowing opportunities available.
Show how passionate you are about healthcare and everyone around you will do their best to help you learn as much as possible!
