The department has ambitions of a large PhD activity within all our research communities. Continuous stimulation of young talents and research recruits for scientific and analytic work is regarded as important in all our subject areas.

Some of our candidates are employed at the university, while many are externally funded and employed at other institutions, such as Helse Bergen (the regional hospitals).

Furthermore, the department is also investing in the Medical Student Research Programme, an currently has several students following the programme. More information about this opportunity can be found on the faculty's pages from the link below.
