These include health communication, management of human resources, social psychology, educational psychology, developmental psychology, clinical psychology, marketing and economics.

Students who graduate from the programme will take advantage of the extended network of research, health institutions and companies belonging or connected to USI and San Raffaele University Hospital.  Graduates will profit from these connections and have the chance to work in research labs and institutes, clinics, and governmental health organizations, NGOs or other health domains, schools, notable companies. The goal of this program is to train students to master psychology and cognitive psychology to a point that they can grasp the basis of human behaviour and communication and use this knowledge to develop practical applications, for example the design of novel and effective interventions to prevent disease and promote health.
