The PhD programme “Epidemiology” is a three-year doctoral programme in the area of epidemiological research and is coordinated by the Department of Epidemiology of the HZI. The PhD programme is a collaborative effort of the Department of Epidemiology, the HZI Grad School and the HBRS (MHH). After successful completion, candidates will be awarded a PhD or, in some instances, a Dr. rer. nat. Current admissions for the PhD Programme are only possible if funding is assured by the applicant (e.g. by a scholarship or a third party).
The duration of each PhD programme cycle is three years.
The PhD programme is structured into individual epidemiological research activity on the one hand (125 Credit Points) and accompanying mandatory educational programme (55 Credit Points, minimum 300 Teaching Units (TU's)) on the other hand.
All training elements are taught in English. The PhD programme is integrated in and supported by a network of PhD students, PostDocs and supervisors with various scientific backgrounds.
