Italy has a public health system called the Servizio Sanitario Nazionale - SSN (National Health Service). The service will provide basic care, intervention in case of emergency, diagnostic and specialist services, hospitalization, pharmaceutical care. EU citizens enjoy the same level of treatment enjoyed by Italian citizens. Non-EU citizens instead need a valid health insurance to get an entry visa for Italy.
All our students get free various health services offered by the Policlinico Tor Vergata (PTV), which is located near the Faculty of Economics. In particular, conventions with the Policlinico concern the prevention and treatment of obesity and eating disorders, free check-ups reserved for blood donors students, consultancy of clinical psychology.
