The long-term and well established PhD programme in Medical Biology and Anatomy, Histology and Embryology in close cooperation with a CEITEC Ph.D. school and ICRC (The International Clinical Research Center of St. Anne's University Hospital Brno) established an innovative, interdisciplinary, fast-growing, and internationally-oriented PhD School in Biomedical Sciences.
The aim of the doctoral degree programme is to train top experts in specialized scientific disciplines studied at the Faculty of Medicine at Masaryk University and a science centre CEITEC. At the same time, the programme provides graduates with such an extensive knowledge of methodological approches that their careers are not limited only to the field in which they write their PhD thesis. Graduates are ready for scientific careers in academic institutions as well as in companies with scientific background and in healthcare facilities and they can also work as specialist lecturers.
Currently there are more than 50 Ph.D. students assigned to the Ph.D. programme.
In general, about 25 % of the Ph.D. students are international of various nationalities (Italian, Latvian, Romanian, Indian, Spanish etc.)
FINANCIAL SUPPORT - the PhD candidates do not pay any tuition fee during the course of study. The programme ensures that all students have some means of financial support of min. 22.000 CZK per month which is often a combination of various sources (grants, scholarship etc.)
GENERAL INFORMATION on the PhD studies at the Faculty of Medicine are summarized in an extensive guide that provides information on the study progression as well as practical information such as Health Insurance, University Sport Facilities, Transportation, ISIC card etc.
