PhD Programs


The Doctoral School has a strong focus on developing research and developing research talents. A full "process" of talent development is seen in the elements covered by the Doctoral School. This ranges from the research year available to master students, the 4+4 PhD program, the Industrial PhD program and the ordinary PhD program.

The daily management of the Doctoral School is undertaken by the PhD Study Director, Prof Pascal Madeleine, PhD, DSc

To accommodate the developments of the Faculty of Medicine, the number of doctoral programs has been extended from three to seven programs :

All programs endorse the 2030 vision of the Faculty of Medicine. Digital health is a core competence of the seven PhD programs with focus spanning from biomedicine, biomedical engineering, clinical specialisations, physiotherapy, public health, and sport sciences to mention a few. All PhD programs organize scientific activities for PhD students and supervisors and provide specific mandatory PhD courses
