Tasks of the MD/PhD Committee

The dual doctorate is an offer for particularly talented, selected students of medicine and the life sciences and places special demands on their supervision. The MD/PhD Commission decides on admission to this special double degree programme and the individual design of the interdisciplinary doctorate. Doctoral students acquire both the titles Dr. rer. med. and Dr. rer. nat. and, after successful completion, may use the title MD/PhD, which distinguishes them as internationally recognised experts.
