The Structure of the PhD Programme UN094 at MedUni Vienna.
The interdisciplinary thematic programmes gather interested university members of individual organisational units / departments with the goal of offering a comprehensive and high-quality training programme in the respective subject areas. The doctoral candidates shall compose their thesis project within the course of the programme and additionally attend the required courses.
During studies a doctoral thesis is to be elaborated and accompanying courses are to be attended and completed. Courses and doctoral thesis are allocated to thematic programmes.
One of these thematic programmes is to be selected and matched with the theme of your planned doctoral thesis. Courses offered by other thematic programmes can be taken as well as far as they fit the scientific background of the thesis project.
It is recommended to contact the programme coordinator of the thematic programme you are interested in, prior to admission to PhD studies in order to get more detailed information about the thematic programme.
