Seminar activities and scientific conferences 

As a doctoral student, you are expected to actively participate in seminars that are relevant to the research project and of a general educational nature, in order to strengthen your subject expertise and your ability to present and discuss your own and others' research.
For PhD students admitted after 1 January 2019, it is mandatory to participate in at least 18 seminars for at least 3 years of the programme within the subject Medical sciences. Doctoral students should also participate in national and international conferences, and present their own results through posters or lectures. 

Seminars are primarily scientific presentations, within for example the framework of seminar series, but also doctoral dissertations, half-time reviews or the like. Journal clubs, as well as meetings and seminars with a scientific focus within the individual research group where the doctoral student presents and/or discusses the others’ research, may be included but not constitute the majority of the seminars. The seminars to be included in the programme are specified in the individual study plan and based on the achievement of the degree objectives. Participation is reported in the course Generic knowledge and skills.
