Curriculum and Courses
The Ph.D. Medical Research covers several core areas and the graduate programs of research training groups. In order to offer Ph.D. candidates a broad course spectrum and in order to profit from potential synergies, all areas have come together and created a course catalogue.
All information on the courses (when, content, potential prerequisites, etc.) can be found on the respective pages of the programs, as well as by asking the individual coordinators.
- Ph.D. candidates from a specific core area have precedent over other Ph.D. candidates where limited places are concerned.
- Only the respective coordinator of a given core area can decide on who receives a place in a course. Please always contact the coordinator in order to make sure there is space and/or if prerequisites are required.
It is possible to collect ECTS in a variety of ways, which are not only limited to actual course participation. The given list shows how many ECTS are awarded for an activity, as well as if there is a maximum number of ECTS that can be awarded for activity (i.e. the supervision of Bachelor or Master students). The list is not complete, but does give a broad overview. If you have any other course types, please ask your respective coordinator if a certain activity can be awarded ECTS and counted towards your required points.
1 ECTS is equivalent to 2 full course or conference days plus the necessary preparation and follow-up, or 30 hours of required work time. A minimum of 0.5 ECTS must be submitted to be credited for an event. ECTS can only be credited in 0.5 increments.
Events that require less than 8 hours of attendance, such as half-day continuing education courses, may be combined with other courses to meet the minimum threshold requirement for 0.5 ECTS.
* plus potentially additional workload (preparation, review, studying for exams)
