Doctorate in medical science "MD-PhD"
This doctorate is intended for candidates holding a diploma in human medicine or dental medicine. It is awarded by the Faculty of medicine following the conclusion of a research project in clinical, fundamental or dental medicine that lasts generally three years.
The Doctorate in medical science "MD-PhD" is not to be confused with the Doctorate in science, specialisation in biology (PhD), which is awarded by the Faculty of science.
The Doctorate in medical science does not lead automatically to a Doctorate in medicine. These two doctorates are distinct from one another, each one involving different research activities, the writing of a different thesis and a separate registration procedure.
