Doctoral education at the Faculty of Medicine
The aim of the research program at the Faculty of Medicine (the PhD degree) is to qualify the candidate for research activities and other kinds of work requiring a high level of scientific insight within the Faculty's research fields.
All candidates who receive supervision and plan to defend their thesis at the Faculty of Medicine, must apply for admission to the organised research training programme.
The Faculty of Medicine also administers the dr.philos. degree, which is an independent degree without supervision and organised research training. The two degrees are considered equal in status.
