Since its foundation, the San Raffaele Hospital established a deep connection with the University of Milan School of Medicine. For the past twenty years San Raffaele has been an invaluable partner for the University of Milan, by hosting students, faculty researchers and physicians.
Recently the San Raffaele has started its own teaching activities by creating a high school, a private university and a PhD program.
