By completing a doctorate, candidates demonstrate their ability to perform original, independent research. As part of the doctorate, the candidate writes a dissertation which provides a distinct contribution to knowledge in the candidate's principal field of study. Moreover, he or she has to prove her expertise in an oral exam. The Faculty awards the doctoral degree upon successful completion of the doctoral studies process.

The degrees awarded by the faculty are doctor of medicine, Dr. med. for short, doctor of dentistry, Dr. med. dent. for short, and doctor of theoretical medicine or Dr. rer. medic.
