Mandatory Elements

Within the framework of the TUM Graduate School(link is external), the Graduate Center of Medicine and Health generates uniform and binding standards in the doctoral education, and offers a doctoral qualification program that consists of subject-related and interdisciplinary elements.
The qualification program ensures that TUM School of Medicine and Health doctoral programs have a consistently high quality. Doctoral candidates are supported in their professional life, as well as in the increasingly important soft skills.
The qualification program designed by TUM-GS and GCMH/TUM School of Medicine and Health comprises the following mandatory elements:

Attending a Good Scientific Practice seminar is compulsory for all doctoral candidates registered as of January 1, 2017 at the School of Medicine and Health, and for members of other thematic graduate centers. This three-hour seminar is regularly offered by the GCMH (apply through DocGS(link is external), search for “Good Scientific Practice Medicine”). The introduction into good scientific practice contained in the kick-of seminar is not sufficient to achieve this qualification element.​​​​​​​
Attendance should take place within the first six months of your doctoral project.
