PhD Programme in English

Prospective candidates of our PhD programme should be aware of the fact that there are over 50 years of experience in PhD degree achievements at the School of Medicine (the first PhD thesis in Croatian medicine was presented in 1955), as well as the fact that over 90% of all PhD degrees in medicine in Croatia are awarded at the School of Medicine, University of Zagreb. Since 1998, after numerous changes, the School of Medicine has been actively improving the PhD programme in keeping with the Bologna process and similar programmes in other European countries. Thus, the first two European conferences on Harmonisationof PhD Programmes in Biomedicine and Health Sciences were held in Croatia and organised by the School of Medicine, which is also one of the founding members of ORPHEUS (Organisation for PhD education in Biomedicine and Health Sciences in the European System). PhD programme in English for foreign students was launched in the academic year 2007/2008, and it is the first of its kind in Croatia.

The programme covers the following fields of Biomedicine and Health Sciences: Basic medical sciences, Clinical medical sciences, Public health and health care, and is intended to cover all the branches of those three fields. The programme is proposed by the School of Medicine, University of Zagreb. Elective course ‘Molecular Medicine’ is proposed in collaboration with ‘Ruđer Bošković’ Institute, Zagreb. In accordance with ‘Zagreb Declaration’, the PhD programme is intended to enable individuals, after completing and defending their PhD thesis, to carry out independent, original and scientifically significant research and critically evaluate work done by others. After completing doctoral programme of studies and public defence of dissertation, students are awarded the degree of PhD in the field of biomedicine and public health.

PhD programme is governed by thePhD Programme Coordination Committee and headed by the Programme Director. PhD Programme Coordination Committee is elected by the PhD Board for a period of four years. The duties of PhD Programme Coordination Committee include admission procedure to the PhD programme, course selection and schedule, and assisting the PhD candidates in finding supervisor for their thesis, as well as the organisation of peer review and re-evaluation of the courses.

Admission criteria as well as the criteria for quality and evaluation of PhD thesis  are in accordance with the ‘Guidelines for Organisation of PhD Programmes in Biomedicine and Health Sciences’ reached at the Second European Conference on Harmonisation of PhD Programmes in Medicine and Health sciences.
