The program is open to graduates with a university degree in medicine or dentistry.

Applicants must have above-average grades (at least "excellent" in the last examination). The applicant's career shows a particular aptitude and motivation for academic work.

These particular qualifications must - at the minimum - be evident from the completed experimental or analytical part of the work, as demonstrated by highly qualified doctoral work in medicine or dentistry (with a graduate degree.: “at least magna cum laude” or written recommendation of the supervisor).

The suitability of the candidate will be decided by the MD / PhD Commission in an interview.
