The duration of the doctoral programme in Medical Science (Dr. scient. med.) in English is four years (8 semesters) and corresponds to 180 ECTS credits. The programme is structured as a blended learning model. Some of the courses take place at the UFL, in six blocks of three to five days each. The remaining courses are taught in online seminars which take place every second Wednesday evening. We give great importance to regular attendance for the courses. To graduate successfully, a minimum of 80 percent of the courses must be attended.
