Doctoral Programs

Doctoral school graduates evolve to take on careers in different fields such as academic research, industry, international and/or non-governmental organizations, hospitals, museums, journalism, public administration, federal research institutes, bioinformatics or environmental protection (just to name a few).

Advanced continuing education programs were created to train PhD students by improving skills, knowledge, capabilities and competencies required to increase research performance and to help them for their future professional career growth.

It is mandatory for students enroled in the PhD, MD-PhD and MD tracks (except for the PhD in Nursing Sciences) to take part in an official program during their thesis.
