A necessary prerequisite for the submission of the final state doctoral examination application is the fulfilment of all the requirements determined by the doctoral board. At the latest, on the date of submitting the application, the student must submit the doctoral thesis statements (if they are determined by the decision of the doctoral board). The state doctoral examination will then proceed within one year after the submission of the application. Commonly, a part of the state doctoral examination is the discussion regarding the statements of the doctoral thesis, unless stated otherwise by the doctoral board or doctoral committee.

Requirements of the study

The basis of the doctoral studies at the Faculty of Medicine of the MU is the procedural pursuit of preparation of the doctoral thesis in close and regular interaction with the tutor and supplemented by the faculty-wide applicable terms for completing the postgraduate studies.
Before the defence of the doctoral thesis is performed, the following conditions need to be met:


- fulfil the requirements of the given individual study plan


- complete at least 5 fields of study courses of a common basis (4 courses of common basis + English Language). The common courses encompass the stated fields of scientific knowledge and capabilities. They can be completed as a part of the organised courses at the MU (with cooperation with CEITEC, Faculty of Science, etc.) or through the analogical external courses (e.g. The Course in the Fundamentals of Research Work Administered by the CAS).


THE FIELDS OF STUDY COURSES OF A COMMON BASIS:


1. English Language - a required course for all students, completed through an examination with a minimum of C1 knowledge level requirement. It is not a part of full-time studies per se, but an individual effort to prepare for the examination. However, the doctoral studies students can, in case of need, attend language courses for medical students, or alternatively complete the courses Academic Writing in English and Presentational Skills in English, which lead towards further development and reinforcement of their language skills.


2. Scientific Information, medicine based on evidence (e.g. the Medicine Based on Scientific Proof course)


3. Ethical and legal aspects of research (e.g. the Bio-medicinal Research Ethics, Law, Ethics and Philosophy in Science courses)


4. Organisation of research projects and clinical trials (e.g. the Planning, Organisation and Evaluation of Clinical Studies courses)


5. Data analysis (e.g. the Analysis of Clinical Data courses)


6. Publication, presentation and grant-related skills (e.g. the Art of Research and Scientific Writing courses)


7. Computer Network User has to


- complete at least 4 subject-area courses (within the competence of the doctoral board)


- meet the publication activity requirements at least in the specified range (see below)


- undergo an internship abroad (with the duration of at least one month), alternatively participate in an international project (attendance at the regular project team meetings is mandatory)


- present original data at an international conference


- submit the doctoral thesis


- pass the final state doctoral examination


-acquire the total amount of 240 credits over the course of studies (in case the MU study and examination regulations change, the credit system may be bypassed at the discretion of the doctoral board).
