IRCCS Fondazione Ca’ Granda Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico

The Fondazione IRCCS Ca’ Granda Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico, better known as the Policlinico di Milano, is a general hospital that can count on important excellence in different areas of care with a strong interdisciplinary approach. Founded by the Duke Francesco Sforza in 1456, it is one of the oldest hospitals in Italy. Given its nature of IRCCS – Institute of Hospitalization and Care with a Scientific Character – in addition to its assistance, it carries out clinical and translational biomedical and health research activities. The research activity is carried out in various fields of medicine, from neurology to cardiology, from transplants to hematology, to the excellence of cures in gynecology, neonatology, geriatrics and rare diseases. The Ministry of Health has recognized Policlinico as the first Public Institute for the quantity and quality of scientific production.
The Policlinico has a reference role within national and international networks that highlight its distinctive activities. It is indeed a reference point for pregnancies and complex births treated at the Mangiagalli Clinic, whose first aid is the most active in Lombardy. Home to the Nord Italia Transplant program (NITp), the Policlinico since 1972 has allowed over 32 thousand organ transplants, with success rates at one year from

the transplant that exceed 90%. It is also distinguished by being a regional reference center for the treatment of rare diseases for more than 260 diseases of adults and children. Every year, on average, about 3,000,000 outpatient services are performed, about 46,000 hospitalizations and almost 2 million diagnostic tests.
It is a pole for the University of Milan and offers, in addition to the master’s degree in Medicine and Surgery, nine health degrees and the master’s degree in Sciences of the health professions of prevention.
