The origins of the University go back to the VIII century AD thanks to the foundation of the celebrated Salerno medical school, an authoritative, prestigious, sanitary institution, which remained important throughout the whole Medieval Age. In addition to teaching medicine, the school also taught philosophy, theology and law. This leads Salerno to be considered as the oldest university established in Europe, rather than the most famous University of Boulogne. A direct link across the centuries can be hypothesized between the traditional Salerno medicine of the Lombard Age and older medical practice of the Greek period.
Having obtained its first legal recognition in the Constitutions of Melfi (1231) and the title of Studium by Conrad II, the Salerno medical school received its first statute from Charles of Anjou (1280). Later, Queen Jeanne formally recognised the legal value of the certification given to graduating doctors (1359), thus breaking the monopoly held by the University of Naples, set up by Frederick II in 1224.
Nowadays The Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2018 placed University of Salerno as first institution of the southern Itay and fourth in the country.
