Doctoral Thesis - Registration

Doctoral Programme of Medical Science N090

Find some helpful recommendations for the thesis registration procedure in this section. If there are further suggestions or conditions by your programme coordinator please pay attention to these.

Recommended thesis registration procedure:

  • tell your supervisor to contact the programme coordinator if the supervisor is not evaluated yet as a senior- resp. junior- supervisor within the thematic programme
  • work out the thesis proposal and get the agreement by your supervisor
  • discuss two further members of your thesis committee with your supervisor;
    in the event that the supervisor has "junior supervisor"-status:
    the programme coordinator provides a senior supervisor evaluated within the thematic programme who may be one of the two further committee members
  • submit the thesis proposal and the data of your thesis committee members to the programme coordinator
  • the programme coordinator decides over the proposal; get all data and signatures required (except by direction of curriculum) on the thesis registration form if the programme coordinator agrees
  • submit the thesis registration form and the thesis proposal in hard copy to the Studies Department
    (see forms and contact information below)

Additional information

Beside your chosen supervisor, two further members of your thesis committee may be suggested to the programme coordinator. They should have to hold the "venia docendi" (Doz./Prof.) in case they are not evaluated within a thematic programme. At least one of the two further members must not belong to the organizational unit of the supervisor.

Students of doctoral studies (N094/N790/N090) at the MedUni Vienna are to be employed for the thesis elaboration. Please discuss the possible employment with the supervisor.
