Scientific Career Development
The Faculty of Medicine awards scholarships twice a year for students in the subject of medicine for a period of 6-12 months to carry out an experimental doctoral thesis. The aim of the funding is to create sufficient free space for the medical doctorate and thus enable high-quality research projects.
By linking science and everyday clinical practice, clinical issues can be brought into research more quickly. Doctoral graduates and scientifically active physicians should be supported in their research projects during their specialist training. The clinician-scientist programmes offer the structural opportunity to work scientifically during specialist training.
The aim of this funding structure is to support young, non-physician scientists in working on their long-term research projects and thus to offer them a reliable and visible career path in medical research.
