Interview with Prof. Scherjon (UMCG) about the MD/PhD Programme

Joint MD/PhD Programme Groningen-Oldenburg

Joint MD/PhD Programme Groningen-Oldenburg

The 2024 call will soon be published if you are interested in the programme check our potential project proposals at the bottom of the page.

The School of Medicine and Health Sciences of the University of Oldenburg and the University Medical Center Groningen offer up to three positions in the joint MD/PhD programme.

The MD/PhD programme is intended for motivated medical graduates from the University of Oldenburg who want to deepen their expertise in scientific research. Their ambition is to have a career as both a clinical specialist and a scientist. This means that they have a future in mind as a physician-scientist or a medical specialist at a university medical centre, or they want to remain involved in scientific research while working as a general practitioner or medical specialist at a regional hospital.

The universities of Groningen and Oldenburg join forces to provide MD/PhD candidates with the best possible scientific qualification. Candidates profit from an excellent research infrastructure while being embedded in an inspiring international working environment. They are supervised by experienced researchers from Groningen and Oldenburg and carry out their research project in both places. In addition, they can take advantage of the course offer of both graduate schools (GSMS, OLTECH) to raise their profile. After successful completion of the programme a double doctorate degree will be awarded.
