Info for candidates and supervisors
Doctoral candidates and Supervisors
There are more than 170 supervisors and co supervisors who guide the scientific work.
Doctoral education in CVM includes national and international courses, congresses and work visits outside own working place. CVM has wide network of experts representing several fields in clinical veterinary medicine in the Universities, institutions, national organisations and industry. In addition, doctoral candidates’ own activities (Student council) and peer support helps in networking. Research expertise, other skills and career planning are followed in annual thesis committee meetings where outside scientific experts support the progress of doctoral candidates.
All doctors graduated from CVM are employed in expert positions in various fields in translational and clinical veterinary medicine in addition to animal welfare posts in academic, authority, clinical teacher, in clinical practice and industry as well as being independent entrepreneurs.

CVM does not require compilation of thesis committee (=follow-up group) and annual meetings of those candidates who have registered to pursue doctoral degree before 1.1.2014. For others it is obligatory.
To support Doctoral candidates’ doctoral education progress in previous year, an annual report to CVM and follow-up meetings with external expert(s) and supervisor(s) are organised. Link to annual report form.
Guideline of the annual report and thesis committee meetings.
The thesis committee consists of at least one external expert with expertise of a docentship and who is not involved in the project at the time of assignment of the thesis committee. The external members should be sufficiently independent of the supervisor and the doctoral candidate, able to provide critical comments on the research project, doctoral studies and support for career development.
Thesis committee external member:
- does not have joint research projects with the doctoral candidate or close collaboration with supervisor within the last three years
- is not the employer or the employee or a family member of the supervisor or the doctoral candidate
