The Observation Training Program at Department of Neurosurgery at San Raffaele University Hospital is designed to allow international medical graduates to observe the activities in order to update and enhance their clinical and educational skills.
The goal of the program is to provide observers with a strong clinical experience, as well as a basic overview of the EU medical system in a medical center that enjoys an outstanding international reputation for interdisciplinary coordination of education, research, diagnosis, and treatment. The program also builds important international relationships, collaborations, and exchange of knowledge with colleagues from around the world.
Request for observer training must be sent by email to the address firstname.lastname@example.org with attached:
• Curriculum vitae
• Copy of medical degree
• Eventually letters of recommendation

For the observer to fully benefit from the experience, it is imperative that he or she has command of the English or Italian language. Patient contact is prohibited as an observer. Each observer must obtain his or her own visa but letter of invitation can be provided by the hospital on request.
Availability of positions is subject to change throughout the year. Each observership must be approved on a case-by-case basis.
Observerships are available for four to eight week periods. Special accommodations for longer rotations may be made on a case-by-case basis and will be subject to faculty availability.
