You have taken the first and most difficult steps: You have found a team of supervisors and agreed on a topic. Now you make it official at the Medical Research School!
For a successful doctoral thesis, we support you with workshops tailored to your needs. They are part of the structured training program which is mandatory for all doctoral researchers at the Faculty of Medicine. Doctoral researchers in the PhD program go through a mandatory basic and cluster curriculum.
Once all the formalities have been completed, the real work begins. Keep track of your achievements and timeline with progress reports, because your time is limited. Grants for stays abroad and congress trips abroad are available from the Heine Research Academies.
If there is to be a change in your supervisors, indicate the change via the online form and the supervisors concerned will approve it by e-mail. Final approval is given by the Dean of the Faculty of Medicine.
Almost done - you want to submit your thesis for assessment. You will find all information on being admitted for a doctorate as well as the forms and contact details on the following pages. The office for doctorate matters within the Graduate Center is responsible for managing and administrating the doctoral examination procedure.
