Training the next generation of young scientists is a long tradition of ours!
MedUni Vienna has been training doctors and young researchers since 1365 and can therefore look back on a long tradition in research and education. Here you can work closely with respected academics and researchers while taking your first independent steps as a scientist. As a young researcher, you’ll be part of a research team from the very beginning and develop your first original project with guidance from a supervisor. Your work will shape the knowledge base of tomorrow’s doctors and have a positive influence on the lives of many people. Medical research is meaningful and rewarding work for anyone who is enthusiastic about science and research. You’ll acquire a deep understanding of your field and its methods and develop important transferable skills you’ll need to succeed in the future. The university and the Alumni club offer excellent networking and training opportunities. At the end of your studies, you’ll write your dissertation, and after a successful defense, you’ll be rewarded with your Ph.D. and be recognized as a fully trained scientist (R2-R3 researcher profile EU level). The doctoral program is full-time and linked to employment at MedUni Vienna.
A Ph.D. is the basis of a successful career in research, education, medicine, or any research-orientated position in the public or private sector.
Depending on your educational background, you can focus your studies on basic or clinical research.
