The Interdisciplinary Biomedicine Doctoral Study Programme lasts for three years, comprises 180 credits and is a third-level Bologna programme. Organised forms of instruction represent 60 credits, while the remaining 120 credits are intended for individual research work for the doctoral dissertation.
The study obligations of the programme are evaluated according to the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), which enables the direct inclusion of parts of the programme in international exchange with universities from countries that use the ECTS system.
The programme allows students to obtain a PhD in the following scientific fields:
- Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
- Public Health
- Clinical Biochemistry and Laboratory Biomedicine
- Medicine – clinical orientation
- Medicine – foundation orientation
- Veterinary Medicine
The programme is organised and implemented by five members of the University of Ljubljana as well as three research institutes, through which qualified teachers and research assistants are included in the programme. They participate in organised forms of tutoring and mentoring and offer research infrastructure to candidates for PhD work.
