Policlinico Gemelli IRCCS di Roma

International Patient Services

We welcome international patient from all over the world for a myriad of investigations, interventions and treatments as The University Hospital A. Gemelli is the top hospital in Italy and an international reference centre for teaching, training and research.

We understand that travelling abroad in search of medical care can be an added stress to the existing illness. Patients who travel for their medical care may have different and additional needs.

This is why we have a team dedicated to ensuring that this process is smooth, safe and satisfactory.

The International Patients Services team is here to coordinate all aspects of this journey, to support patients and their companions and to make sure that Gemelli continues to be by your side even after your return home. We have designated team members dedicated to coordinating the logistical aspects of your journey and answering all your questions from transportation to finances, while the medical aspect of your experience at Gemelli is the main responsibility of our coordinating doctors.

International Patient Medical Second Opinions

We offer and recommend free-of-charge Medical Second Opinions to all our patients prior to their travel to Rome.

Our Coordinating Doctors are doctors who receive your medical file and evaluate it with the pertinent specialists, to provide you with the best recommendations for managing your condition.

Also, they are happy to answer any questions you may have, via email, messaging or telephone, even prior to your arrival.

In hospital

Once here in our hospital, they coordinate your entire stay at Gemelli and work closely with the doctors and nurses involved in your care, to make sure that all the investigations, appointments and treatments or interventions are planned in a most efficient manner, and are always available to answer your questions.

After your discharge and after your return home, these doctors follow up on you even from a distance and are just a phone call or message away whenever you may need them.


Our Logistic Coordinators arrange your transportation to and from the airport, arrange for accommodation at one of our neighbouring partner hotels at special rates and are always available and ready to help support you with anything from visa applications, to explaining financial transactions within Gemelli.
