The duration of the doctoral programme in Medical Science (Dr. scient. med.) is three years (6 semesters) and corresponds to 180 ECTS credits. Except some few modules, which are also taught on Thursdays, the courses take place on Fridays and Saturdays once a month at the UFL. We attach great importance to a regular attendance at the courses. For a successful graduation, at least 80 percent of the courses must be attended.
