Doctorate study programs
Doctorate study programs are a significant part of the teaching offered at the faculty, and there are 20 programmes accredited which cover all major fields of theoretical and clinical subjects. Currently, there are about 250 PhD students studying and working in several research areas and we are also closely involved in the harmonisation of the PhD programmes within the European Union.
The faculty has organised the annual International Medical Postgraduate Conference since 2004 and on this occasion the best PhD students from a dozen EU countries are given the opportunity to present their results at an event that is supported by ORPHEUS (Organisation for PhD Education in Biomedicine and Health Sciences in the European System). Presentations are evaluated by an international jury, the members of which are internationally recognised scientists from ten EU states. We believe this is an effective way of harmonising the quality of PhD programmes with the EU and also to promote communication among students within the Union.
