The Faculty of Health Sciences has 8 graduate programmes. Their main task is to offer highly specialized PhD courses and seminars within each programme’s specific research area.
The steering committee of each graduate programme consists of a small group of supervisors and PhD students. The steering committee decides the programme’s profile and activities, including but not limited to the PhD courses held under the auspices of the programme. PhD students and supervisors who would like to have an influence on the range of courses and activities offered by a graduate programme should contact the steering committee or apply for membership of the committee.
