Duration of the programme : 3 years
The preparatory training (min. 25 ECTS credits) is conducted in parallel to the studies in medicine and contains courses, seminars, practical works and the Master thesis, proposed by the Lausanne University School of Medicine. The MD-PhD thesis starts after completion of the studies in medicine.
The students propose an individual study programme established from the list of courses validated by the MD-PhD Commission. The Commission examines all training programmes individually and validates those that meet the objectives of the MD-PhD training.
In case of late start ECTS credits can be caught up with summer schools.
By presenting a certificate it is also possible to obtain ECTS credits for internships carried out in laboratories (1 ECTS credit per week in the lab).
