The duration of the doctoral programme in Medical Science (Dr. scient. med.) is four years (8 semesters) and corresponds to 180 ECTS credits. With exception of a few modules, which are also taught on Thursdays, the courses take place on Fridays and Saturdays once a month at the UFL. We give great importance to regular attendance for the courses. To graduate successfully, a minimum of 80 percent of the courses must be attended.
