Degree programme objectives

The Doctoral Study Program Hygiene, Preventive Medicine and Epidemiology is a four-year program based on the study and the acquisition of the ability to understand the relationship between man and the environment and their mutual interactions, the importance of adapting and strengthening them to promote positive development of the health of individuals and populations. Emphasis is placed on mastering the broad context leading to the ability to deduce the importance and weight of the environment and lifestyle in protecting and supporting health and priorities in the field of primary prevention. During the PhD studies, the student learns to acquire scientific information, to work with them when deciding on specific prevention options for selected non-communicable diseases such as cardiovascular, oncological, metabolic, immune, respiratory and other diseases. Students will acquire the ability to critically analyze used methodologies, the ability to interpret their results and their presentation. In the field according to the specific focus of his dissertation, the student should be able to further develop his / her field of study at the end of his / her studies.

  • Learning Outcomes

    After successfully completing his/her studies the graduate is able to:

    • Understands the theories, concepts and methods that represent current industry trends at the international level.
    • He is very well versed in the ethics of scientific work and the specific ethical problems of his specialization.
    • He is able to professionally lead students within their specialization.
    • He is able to independently design and conduct research at all stages, to formulate general conclusions and, if necessary, to perform targeted interventions.
    • He can interpret the results at an international conference, discuss with experts in her specialization, critically evaluate their methods, results and conclusions.
    • He can prepare a science article and publish it in an international scientific journal.
    • Can prepare a competitive grant application and then organize a research or intervention study.
  • Occupational Profiles of Graduates

    Scientific Researcher at Institutions e.g. the National Health Institute

    Teacher - academic worker at the university or college

    Laboratory researcher

    Worker in management focused on health protection and support (eg Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic, Food Chamber, etc.)

    Applied research supervisor in the private sector (eg food industry)

    Head of medical equipment management with a focus on epidemiology of infectious diseases

  • Practical Training

    Students of Doctoral Studies do not have compulsory compulsory internships. If the topic of doctoral work is close to a particular type of practice, students are ad hoc at the appropriate field workplaces.

  • Goals of Theses

    Doctoral Ph.D. in Hygiene, Preventive Medicine and Epidemiology must meet the requirements applied to scientific work internationally. The introduction of the thesis documents the state of research in a specific research issue. Since the HPLE is based on a population approach, quantitative research methods are preferred, the results are presented on the basis of statistical processing and the conclusions are formulated exactly. Discussion must be conducted in a curriculum of instruction and criticism using recent international literature. Formal requirements for work respect the general recommendation of the Faculty of Medicine.
