The Graduate Program Experimental Medicine aims at creating a high standard training and supervision program for doctoral candidates of the Medical Faculty. The program allows broad qualification in topics of molecular and experimental medicine and will familiarize students with modern laboratory techniques. Language and soft skill courses, including the training of communication, presentation, and public speaking, will also be provided. The doctoral studies are supervised by a thesis committee and documented in annual research reports.
The Graduate Program Experimental Medicine belongs to the JSMM (http://www.jsmm.uni-jena.de/cms/), which in turn is a member of the Jena Graduate Academy (JGA). The JSMM coordinates four graduate programs: the CSCC-Research Training Group (CSCC-RTG) (http://www.cscc.uniklinikum-jena.de/Graduiertenkolleg.html), the RTG 1715 “Adaptive Stress Responses” (RTG 1715) (http://www.rtg1715.uni-jena.de), the Graduate Program Experimental Medicine, and the Leibniz Graduate School on Aging and Age-Related Diseases (LGSA) (http://www.fli-leibniz.de/phd).
The Graduate Program Experimental Medicine is open to doctoral students of life sciences and medicine coming from different research groups of the Medical Faculty.
