Training in the CBD PhD program

Our four-year PhD program provides tandem supervision for high level research projects, scientific training and clinical education to attract outstanding MD and MSc graduates.

Excellent research is the central part of our program (see PhD projects). In addition, we provide a structured PhD curriculum that supports the research. The majority of the courses are chosen specifically by the student in a way that best suit their needs and interests. All courses are in English. Detailed information for current courses can be found on our homepage of the Innsbruck PhD School for Biomedical Sciences.

The duration of a PhD in the CBD program is fixed at four years (eight semesters). The PhD thesis of our students is typically based on first-authored, peer-reviewed publications resulting from their research project.
