Please submit any further questions to your Faculty.

The Faculty of Medicine appoints one or two supervisors to a doctoral candidate based on his or her application for the right to pursue a doctoral degree. Supervisors must hold a doctoral degree, and at least one supervisor must hold the qualifications of a docent.

Should a doctoral candidate have a multidisciplinary doctoral thesis, the candidate can be appointed a third supervisor with good reasons when applying for the right to pursue a doctoral degree. In this case, at least two of three supervisors must hold the qualifications of a docent, and one of the supervisor must come from a different field than the other two. Application for appointing a third supervisor can be done afterwards as well, with an informal application signed by the interested party.
