Want to study for a PhD in medicine or pharmacy?

DoktorsdiplomPhD studies are the highest level in the public education system. As a new PhD graduate you will have good prospects for a successful career.

You will develop into an independent researcher, ready to take on complex tasks in academia, industry, healthcare and government. This means, among other things, a good knowledge of a specialised research area, an ability to think independently and critically, and skills in scientific methods and working processes.

At the Disciplinary Domain of Medicine and Pharmacy at Uppsala University, you can study for a degree as a Doctor of Pharmacy or a Doctor of Medicine. You can also apply for a degree of Licentiate in Pharmacy or Medicine at the after halfway point in the PhD programme.
