Ph.D. Program - Medical Research in Epidemiology & Public Health

An important component of our Ph.D. Program is the annual Ph.D. Retreat. All of our students are required to attend the three to four day retreat whereby they have the opportunity to present their research to colleagues, faculty members, and invited speakers and profit from their experience.

The format of the retreat, tailored according to the needs of the students, fosters the interactions between young researchers working at different institutions. It also provides an excellent 'hands on' experience in project management as our fellows are encouraged to take an active part in the retreat organisation.
