Ph.D./Dr.rer.nat. program in biomedicine: deadline is November 15.
Applicants for the Ph.D./Dr.rer.nat. program in biomedicine will be admitted on January 1, 2013. Important feature: graduates of medicine complete doctorate parallel to specialist training within four and a half years.
This unique program started in April 2012 with graduates of medicine and natural sciences. Witten/Herdecke University made an agreement with affiliated hospitals as a financial safeguard for participants: the hospitals provide a half-time position and the university covers the other half with a scholarship. Prof. Hans-Joachim Lipps, cell biologist and supervisor of the program, describes the benefits: “The program is unique. Participants spend about 50 % of their specialist training in clinics and maintain the connection to patient care during lab experiments. This is excellent preparation for a research career arranged so that findings will be of immediate benefit to patients.” The program targets graduates who plan a career in research.
Application deadline: November 15, 2012.
