Public Health in Italy

Consulta degli Specializzandi SItI (commonly “Consulta”) is a part of the Società Italiana di Igiene, Medicina Preventiva e Sanità Pubblica (SItI), the Italian Society of Public Health.

Consulta’s aim is to promote and to stimulate professional, cultural and personal development in the Italian Medical Residents in Public Health, to promote cooperation between the Italian Public Health Schools and to stimulate discussions about issues related to Public Health.

Consulta is composed of two representatives for each of the 32 Italian Public Health Schools, accounting for more than 700 residents across Italy. Consulta members are chosen by each School through elections in which all the School’s residents have the right both to vote and to stand for. Once elected, Consulta members elect their President; members’ and President’s mandates last two years. The election of the new President takes place every even year, in October, during the National Public Health Conference.
Consulta is fully aware of the importance of having tight relations and productive forms of cooperation between Public Health Residents across Europe; that’s why Consulta is a proud founder of the Euronet of Medical Residents in Public Health.

Consulta shares with its European counterparts the need for a better integration of Public Health trainings in Europe; for this reason it provides Euronet MRPH with a list of places where it is possible for residents belonging to the associations that take part in Euronet MRPH to have internships during their residencies.
