    About Graduate School of Health

    The Graduate School of Health has a framework of Graduate Programmes (GPs). The foundation for the PhD degree programme is formed by the five departments at the Faculty of Health: Department of Clinical Medicine, Department of Biomedicine, Department of Public Health, Department of Forensic Medicine and Department of Dentistry. As a PhD student you are enrolled in one of three graduate programmes:

    ClinFO – Clinical Medicine, Forensic Medicine and Dentistry and Oral Health

    The ClinFO Programme covers three fields of clinical sciences associated with the Department of Forensic Medicine, the Department of Dentistry and Oral Health, and the Department of Clinical Medicine. 

    The research projects extend from basic and transitional research to advanced studies in epidemiology and clinical trials including in vivo studies in healthy subjects, clinical patient-related research and animal experiments as well as in vitro research using tissue biopsies, explants and cell lines.

    Our research facilities are excellent with state-of-the-art equipped research laboratories and our highly skilled laboratory assistants and post-docs enable advanced projects at the highest level.

    Biomedicine programme

    The Graduate Programme in Biomedicine oversees enrollment and completion of PhD studies within the Department of Biomedicine. To ensure a fair and sound process in these matters, the Programme has secured a broad involvement of the Department’s Faculty and students. Relevant PhD courses are also offered with involvement of the Programme in close collaboration with other Graduate Programmes in the Graduate School of Health. Students and supervisors alike are invited to contact the Head of the Programme or local representatives for all types of advice pertinent to applications or PhD training.

    Public Health programme

    Public Health Science comprises an important part of the scientific foundation for health and wellbeing in the population.

    Public Health Science focuses on occurrence, distribution, causes and consequences of health and diseases in the population. It also includes the study of health promotion, prevention, rehabilitation, health and social services, drugs in sports and body cultural phenomena.

    Public Health Science is a broad, interdisciplinary field with an interface to other areas of health science, including biostatistics, medicine, biomedical and clinical research. Public Health Science includes specialised disciplines, based on epidemiological, statistical, biomedical, physical-chemical, psychological, social science, sport science and human research methods.
