PhD Medical Research - Epidemiology and Public Health at LMU
The PhD program in Medical Research with the specialisation in epidemiology and public health is an interdisciplinary program, promoting research activities in these areas. The PhD follows the philosophy of "tailor-made learning": the Thesis Advisory Committee (TAC), which comprises three supervisors, and the PhD candidate jointly agree on the research project and required training needs, thereby ensuring that the particular training and supervision needs of each PhD candidate are met.
The PhD is part of the Pettenkofer School of Public Health, which operates as a platform for teaching and research in the Munich area, and consists of the Helmholtz Zentrum München, the Bayerisches Landesamt für Gesundheit und Lebensmittelsicherheit (Bavarian Health and Food Safety Agency) and the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU).
