Top PhD Programs in Slovenia 2017. The field of biomedicine encompasses knowledge from the areas of basic medicine, biochemistry and molecular biology, clinical biochemistry and laboratory biomedicine, clinical medicine, genetics, microbiology, neuroscience, pharmacy, public health, toxicology and veterinary medicine. The need for a high-quality and up-to-date doctoral program to acquire suitable knowledge in these areas is dictated by rapid and extensive development in these various scientific fields, as well as their impact on the quality of life. Due to previous good experiences and the advantages of an interdisciplinary approach to existing postgraduate studies, the doctoral study of biomedicine is organized at university level. The field of biomedicine is very broad and is being developed at the first two educational levels by various faculty members at the University of Ljubljana. It seems reasonable to link the third educational level (doctoral studies) in terms of organization and content. This approach also enables the collaboration of teachers and researchers from separate scientific fields, thus forming a broader interdisciplinary field. The connections of university research with research institutes are also achieved. The primary emphasis of doctoral study is on research, interdisciplinary and collaboration between internationally renowned local and foreign experts. Based on recommendations of the European University Association (EUA), international student exchange is also encouraged. As the end result of the research work, the publishing of at least one scientific article is expected. Special emphasis is placed on a productive relation between the doctoral candidates and their mentors. Students can choose mentors from amongst internationally recognized and established experts in compliance with the rules of the University of Ljubljana and collaborating faculties. In line with the orientation of the Bologna study reform, the doctoral study in Biomedicine is designed as a three-year third cycle study and comprises 180 ECTS. The focus is on the research work, interdisciplinary and cooperation of internationally recognized home and foreign experts. The program leads to the degree of doktor/ doktorica znanosti ("Doctor of Science") in the following fields: Basic Medicine Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Clinical Biochemistry and Laboratory Biomedicine Clinical Medicine Genetics Microbiology Neuroscience Pharmacy Public health Toxicology Veterinary Medicine Basic program goal and general competence The basic goal of the Interdisciplinary Doctoral Program in Biomedicine is to further educate highly qualified experts in the scientific fields that constitute the area of biomedicine. The program is interdisciplinary and encompasses biochemistry and molecular biology, pharmacy, genetics, clinical biochemistry and laboratory biomedicine, clinical and basic medicine, microbiology, neuroscience, public health, toxicology and veterinary medicine. The graduates of doctoral program in Biomedicine will acquire the ability of understanding, critically judging and solving complex scientific-research issues. They will be qualified for creative and independent research, for the critical assessment of research results, the development of new research methods and the transfer of new research methods and knowledge into practice. Application and enrolment in the Doctoral Program in Biomedicine Call for enrolment is published on the UL web page (www.uni-lj.si) no later than 4 months prior to the start of the academic year. Applicants for admission to the program can apply according to the instructions in call for enrolment. Candidates will receive information regarding the success of their application in September.
