MD/PhD Program in Experimental Medicine

The PhD Program in Experimental Medicine aims at students that have graduated from a medical school (German "Staatsexamen " or equivalent), hold a Diploma or Master of Science degree in the Life sciences or related disciplines (e.g. biomedical sciences, biology, biochemistry, physics, chemistry, psychology, computer sciences, engineering) and seek a challenging education for a future position in the field of medical research.

Highly motivated and especially talented students already enrolled in the MD-equivalent degree programs „Staatsexamen Humanmedizin“ or „Staatsexamen Zahnmedizin“ at the University of Tübingen may also be eligible to participate in a double-degree (MD/PhD) program after passing their intermediate examinations.

The regular duration of the program is 6 semesters (3 years). Further information on the Program you will find here:
