The Faculty of Public Health’s doctoral program leads to the award of the degree of Doctor of Public Health (DrPH) or Doctor of Philosophy (PhD in Public Health).
In the course of the doctoral program, you will be taught the knowledge and skills required to work independently and systematically on scientific problems in the various areas of the health sciences and the international scientific field of public health using suitable methods and to complete the required doctoral thesis on this basis. At the same time, you will receive support and motivation at every stage of your doctoral thesis through discussion and writing assignments. Following the doctoral program courses is one of the requirements for initiating the doctoral procedure.
