MD-PhD Commission

The MD-PhD Commission is attached to the FBM and EPFL Doctoral Schools.

The MD-PhD Commission promotes the programme and assists students in preparing to compete for a National Scholarsip. Members of the Commission may also help students find a thesis director in Switzerland and obtain funding if they do not receive a National Scholarship. 

Each MD-PhD candidate is attributed a member of the MD-PhD Commission who serves as a mentor and helps them prepare their presentation to the Commission. The mentor is available for any program-related issue that the candidate may raise.
