The aim of the doctoral programme is to educate doctoral candidates into ethically conscious, professional researchers and experts who are genuinely multidisciplinary, critical, innovative and have international network for the service of society. Clinical work has been taken into account by dividing scientific and professional education in periods to match research education with clinical veterinary practice.
Multidisciplinary topics are being studied by multiple methods (e.g. lectures, group works and practise) underlining to obtain skills and knowledge in clinical veterinary medicine.
Mobility (courses, congresses and work outside own working place) of doctoral candidates is supported by CVM. Doctoral candidates (Student council) also organise scientific and social activities to facilitate networking. Annual thesis committee meetings support the progress of scientific and transferable skills and also career development of CVM’s doctoral candidates.
