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:

Publication (old doctoral regulations)

If the candidate does not have a first author publication, he can file an exception request through the Experimental Medicine Steering Committee. This is only possible in justified exceptional cases.

This requires:
An explanation from the first supervisor why it was not possible for the candiddate to prepare and submit a first author publication.
A publication list (the doctoral candidate must be able to offer a substitute publication(s) in the form of co-authorship or must be able to demonstrate first authorship in the near future)
A statement from the first supervisor as to what proportion of the research from the publications was the candidate's.
