MD/PHD Programme

  FB 16 - Medicine







 

Recently, the Medical Faculty (FB16) and the Faculty of Biochemistry, Chemistry and Pharmacy (FB14) established an MD/PhD programme. Medical doctors who have carried out lab research and have received a “Dr. med” degree, can do a 3-year PhD project and register with the FB14 and obtain a “Dr. phil.nat” degree.
In general, these regulations for awarding doctoral degrees require that the students have demonstrated the ability to understand, design, implement and critically evaluate a research process which has enabled them to make a contribution through original research. This must be done in a thesis and a successful presentation and defense of this thesis in public. FIRST does not have specific additional formal requirements for doctorates, the doctoral regulations of the respective faculties are to be followed. FIRST PhD students are encouraged to write and defend their thesis in English.
