Doctoral Studies

Welcome to the Institute of Medicine’s pages about doctoral studies, where you can find out how to apply for a doctoral studentship and get vital information for current PhD students.

Would you like to join us? Here, doctoral degrees are available in subjects ranging from allergology and osteoporosis to diabetology. We offer world-class research environments, supervisors in a great number of subjects, modern equipment and laboratories.
The Institute has nearly 300 PhD students engaged in doctoral studies, focusing on preclinical and clinical research projects. The purpose of these studies is to give the students in-depth subject knowledge, skills in research methodology and experience of research. Do you have any questions? Get in touch and we will help you.

Do you want to become one of our PhD students?

There are two paths to doctoral education at Sahlgrenska Academy. One is to apply, competing with other applicants, for an advertised doctoral studentship. In this case, the University of Gothenburg is the employer. Alternatively, you can be admitted to study for a PhD while holding another position, with an employer other than the University.
