Trieste. Despite a significant increase in the number of places available across the country, this year for access to medicine and surgery will be nearly as competitive as previous years. This call, unique in all of Italy, made 14,020 places available for 13,072 in 2020: there will be almost a thousand doctors in the future, equivalent to + 7.3%. The growth is linked to both the Covid-19 emergency, which made it necessary to bolster forces in hospitals and health facilities, and empty wards due to retirement: a process that has been going on for at least a decade, and has been accelerated in the past three years by the “Quota100” system. On the other hand, the differences in nationally available places for dentistry are minimal: it is 1,253 across Italy (it was 1,231 last year), and Trieste allows 40.
Last year, just over 30% of candidates passed the entrance exam, the only medical and dental exam. This year, the students who will sit for the exam at the University of Trieste for the 180 available places (plus 40 in dentistry) are 614. The pass rate can therefore remain virtually unchanged, even if the reality is more complicated: from two years ago candidates are no longer obligated to take the exam Where they wish to study and the classification, which is unique in medicine and dentistry, is placed on a national level.

So the success rate is around 43%.
