MD PhD Program for Medical Students

MD PhD program in brief

During their undergraduate years, medical students learn a lot about current views of medical information and its application to clinical practice. Relatively little emphasis, on the other hand, is traditionally placed on ways to produce new knowledge. This hampers the students' capacity and possibilities to become involved in medical research or to make an academic career.

By joining the MD PhD Program for Medical Students, students can enhance their scientific understanding and research skills. The studies combine theoretical reasoning on the philosophy, ethics, and history of science to very practical hands-on skills, such as academic communication or design of a research proposal. Thus, the program is designed to complement researcher training carried out at the Kauppi Campus of the University of Tampere.

Detailed aims

  • Increased volume and quality of theoretical research education at the School of Medicine.
  • Increased number of medical students involved in research and registered for post-graduate studies
  • Improved guidance and follow-up for theoretical education within post-graduate studies
  • Decreased mean age at completion of the degree of Doctor of Medical Science
