Start of Doctoral Studies Process


If the application you submitted to the Doctoral Studies Commission is complete and correct, you will receive a written notification that the process has begun. It will include the names of both your reviewers and the chair.

In addition to checking the formalities, the submitted dissertation is roughly examined for its scientific character and required duration in accordance with the “New Recommendations for the Evaluation of Dissertations". If the scientific nature or the required duration is questionable, the MD/PhD committee usually appoints a promotion committee that is independent of the supervisor; the names of the reviewers are not communicated.

Otherwise, your two proposed reviewers will be sent a letter requesting a graded evaluation. They have two months to submit this.
