On October 1st, 2018, the LMU's Medical Faculty introduced a structured program for all doctoral candidates wanting to obtain a Dr. med., Dr. med. dent. or Dr. rer. biol. hum. Since this date, all doctoral projects have to be carried out in a structured way, without exception. Crucial for determining whether a doctoral project is going to be carried out in a structured way or not, is the submission date of the supervision agreement.
