What is a research track?
A research track includes courses (specific to one or several tracks), thematic events and international conferences. Once the concept has been fully realised, a thematic event is arranged every second year for each track. The basic idea behind research tracks as part of doctoral-level education is to give doctoral students a greater opportunity to meet and interact with other doctoral students and researchers at the two faculties of the Disciplinary Domain of Medicine and Pharmacy.
Purpose of the research tracks
A research track is interdisciplinary and should contain every aspect of research within the disciplinary domain, such as drug development, pathology and pathogenesis, diagnostics, functions and explanatory models, use of medicine, care and treatment.
To fulfil the requirements and obtain credits for participation in a research track, the following is required:
- Participation in two thematic events
- Participation in an international conference within a field relevant to the research track
- Formal courses under the theme of the track totalling at least 5 credits
A completed track is formalised as a course bearing the name of the track (for example “Cancer research track”) and provides 1.5 credits.
