In the event of a medical emergency

What to do, where to go

In the case of an accident or of falling ill on the campuses of Politecnico, please promptly contact the university's First Aiders closest to the site of the emergency.

The First Aiders are duly trained employees of Politecnico, capable of handling medical emergencies, evaluating the severity of such incidents and giving first aid.

For minor medications, first aid boxes are distributed throughout the University. To access these boxes, students must apply to the First Aiders.

We invite all students to read the following document:
Management of Medical Emergencies

For medical emergencies outside the campuses, please call 112

Are you sick? Do you need to be seen by a doctor?

You can contact the "Servizio di Continuità Assistenziale" or the "guardia medica" (out-of-hours medical services).

The aim of these services is to hear the health issues of users and give an appropriate and correct solution: telephone advice, home examination, information on the closest out-of-hours clinic, or referral to the 112 emergency telephone number.
