These measures demand all of us to take radically change our lifestyle and ways of working embracing the imposed rules with common sense.

Also in our territory, the Decree extends the suspension of in class teaching and curricular activities until April 3, 2020.


Medical and health courses excluded

The decree excludes from the suspension the courses for doctors in specialist training, and the activities of trainees of the health professions who, as regards those carried out at the Policlinico Tor Vergata, have suffered limitations imposed by the Health Department.

Research

Please note that all research activities are not suspended and that administrative offices are open with some limitations of reception to the public, while still guaranteeing remote assistance.


Administrative Staff

Since the DPCM does not mention the suspension of work activities therefore there are no restrictions in reaching offices and work places.

Tor Vergata University has authorized the application of smart-work for members of the administrative, technical and libraries staff if compatible with the needs of the service.


Online Lessons

Teaching activities (lessons, doctoral exams and degree exams) will be carried out, up until April 3, 2020, in online mode, so that the educational path of all students is not further affected.


Exams

Exams already scheduled are suspended until April 3, 2020.

In office appointments and office hours for all students are suspended and will be carried out exclusively online.


Public Tender / Open Competitions / Concorsi

All open competitions procedures are suspended with the exception of those in which the assessment of candidates is carried out exclusively on curricular basis or online.

Public competitions for health personnel are excluded from suspension, including state examinations and qualification to practice as a surgeon.


A painful choice

We are aware that closing libraries and study rooms, as well as postponing conferences, congresses, meetings and events of any nature, represents a painful choice.

What we are doing today is the consequence of an emergency which we must face with discipline, sense of duty and common sense, in order to be able to return to our respective training and work paths as soon as possible.


Saving lives

A thought of deep respect and gratitude to our doctors, nurses, trainees and trainees in the medical area who, like their colleagues throughout Italy, are committed daily to save the lives of our loved ones.
