Networking and support service
Participating in networking opportunities and seminars during your studies is valuable. Making contact with other PhD students can be of great benefit to you during your time in the doctoral programme. It may also be that you need support from the doctoral student union, or the doctoral student ombudsman, when situations arise that you need help with. On this page, you can find links to student unions, seminar series, an action plan in case of conflict, and information on what to do if your studies do not go as planned.
During PhD studies, differences of opinion can arise between supervisors and doctoral students. They can sometimes develop into conflicts which, in the worst cases, become aggravated and have negative consequences on the doctoral student, the supervisor and the project. It is therefore important to work preventively so that conflicts can be avoided. If a conflict nevertheless arises, it is essential for both the doctoral student and the supervisor to be familiar with the necessary resources and procedures.
The Faculty of Medicine has established an action plan to prevent and manage conflicts between supervisors and doctoral students. The purpose of the action plan is to support the prevention of conflicts and managing a conflict if it arises.
