The Doctoral School in Health Sciences (DSHealth) is multidisciplinary by nature and consists of eight internationally and nationally networked doctoral programmes that approach life sciences from clinical, molecular and behavioral perspectives. The doctoral school aims to provide systematic, efficient and high-quality doctoral training to prepare doctoral candidates for both professional careers in research and other positions of high expertise. Each DSHealth doctoral candidate has a personal supervisor for scientific guidance, and a thesis commitee to monitor and advise on the progress toward the doctoral degree. DSHealth course offerings and events cover academic topics as well as transferable skills and career planning. When working full time, the aim is to complete the doctoral degree in four years net time.
