 Funded PhD Programme (Students Worldwide)

About the Programme

What will you learn?

The primary objective of the Physiology, Pathologic Physiology, Medical Chemistry, and Biochemistry degree programme is to prepare qualified professionals in scientific tasks in the fields of medical, physiological, pathophysiological, chemical, and biochemical sciences.

The doctoral degree programme develops the skills of excellent master's degree graduates of medical, veterinary, pharmaceutical or natural science disciplines. Those skills include the ability to perform independent creative tasks in the area of research, development, and implementing clinical applications. Therefore the studies are focused on the deepening of their theoretical foundations and introducing them to modern discoveries in the fields of Biochemistry, Physiology, Pathophysiology, and Biology while focusing on practical applications in medical sciences.

The graduates of the field are encouraged to continue their scientific-pedagogic careers at universities or clinical medicine fields. They can also work in research institute laboratories focusing on Biochemistry, Physiology, and all related sciences, as independent developer staff.

There are two specialisations available in the programme - Physiology and Pathological Physiology, and Medical Chemistry and Biochemistry.

Career opportunities

The graduates of the field are encouraged to continue their scientific-pedagogic careers at universities, specifically in Theoretical Medicine institutes or in clinical discipline areas of faculty hospitals. They can also work in the laboratories of research institutes focusing on Biochemistry, Physiology, and every related science. The students will be able to continue their scientific pursuits in the areas of basic and applied research.

Admission Requirements

The admission procedure takes place in two rounds: 1st round: The admission committee evaluates the materials which the applicant has attached to the application: - curriculum vitae - an essay / a motivation letter - a diploma and transcript of courses taken - two letters of recommendation from previous teachers. It is recommended to prepare these documents very carefully, as it is on the basis of these documents that the applicant will be invited to the second round of interviews. 2nd round: The entrance examination in the form of an interview conducted before the admission committee; upon prior agreement, it can be held using videoconferencing technology. In the admission process, the applicant can obtain a maximum of 100 points. To be accepted, it is necessary to receive at least 80 points. An admission committee evaluates a presentation of an applicant during the exam. However, the final decision has to be made by the dean of faculty. If the result is "accepted", the administrator of the Office for Quality prepares admission documents. These admission documents are sent directly to the applicant. In the case of a visa application, admission documents are required for the procedure.
