Health Surveillance

Health Surveillance is addressed to all workers at the IMT School (Technical-Administrative Staff, Professors, Researchers, holders of Co.Co.Co. contracts, Undergraduates, PhD students, trainees, etc.) and is carried out by the Medical Officer in charge. The Competent Doctor, a specialist in occupational medicine, assesses the suitability of male and female workers for the specific work task to which they have been assigned, ascertaining their health conditions in relation to the risks that the assigned work entails. The Competent Doctor carries out:

  • the initial health assessment (post-employment visit);
  • periodic health checks;
  • a medical examination at the request of the worker if he or she considers that he or she is suffering from an ailment the cause of which arises from his or her work activity;
  • medical examination on the occasion of a change of job;
  • medical examination upon termination of employment.


Psychological Support Services

In January of 2019, the School signed an agreement with the Usl Toscana Nord Ovest (the local health unit) to activate psychological support services for both students and staff of the IMT School. The psychologists, selected by the local health unit (U.O.C. Psicologia e Sanità Territoriale, Azienda Usl Toscana Nord Ovest), can be reached through a dedicated email address.
The agreement will provide welcome interviews and brief psychological consultations that can be carried out individually or as a group, for those who request the services.
The psychological support services are also available in English.
The Coordinator of the Psychologists is Dr. Patrizia Fistesmaire (curriculum).
