About this program

Biomedicine (4 Years)

The interdisciplinary doctoral Program in Biomedicine combines various scientific areas that together contribute to the key understanding and continuous development of medical science in a broader sense. The field of biomedicine is quite broad and is traditionally being developed by several member faculties. Advanced laboratory research was also traditionally developed by various laboratories at national research institutes outside the University of Ljubljana. In order to increase the research possibilities for doctoral candidates, three national research institutes were invited to join the university in forming the new doctoral Program in biomedicine. The organization of the Program is coordinated by field coordinators acting in the faculties where the doctoral students are enrolled in the Program. The primary emphasis of doctoral study is on the students’ research, so students are obliged to choose their mentors at the beginning of their studies. In addition, to be involved in the research work, students are also offered advanced theoretical knowledge through the choice of several types of courses: compulsory core courses, elective theoretical courses, and elective individual research courses. Together with their mentors and field coordinators, the doctoral candidates design the individual degree Programs by selecting courses that are consistent with the individual student’s research interest.
