To prepare Ph.D. student for a practical scientific life

Degree programme objectives

The Internal Medicine doctoral degree programme has been created through the merging of three originally individual study disciplines, which have become the sub-specialisations of this unified programme - Dermatovenerology, Cardiology, and Internal Medicine.

The main objective of the programme is to achieve successful inter-disciplinary cooperation through the interaction between the individual sub-specialisations, as well between the specialisations of other doctoral degree programmes at the FM MU, such as Pathophysiology, Chemistry, or Pharmacology. The graduates of this degree programme will be able to succeed in the toughest of competitive environments at the national and international level, thanks to the recent reinforcement of international cooperation with institutes abroad and the emphasis placed upon the encouragement of scientific and publications activities (primarily English publications in international journals with a measured impact factor).

The main focus is to maximize the possible improvement of the quality of the publications of the PhD students, with the maximum effort to ensure the successful defence of their work. The graduates should be primarily prepared to continue their scientific careers at academic institutions.
