PhD degree, thesis and public defence

The PhD programme culminates in a PhD degree. At the Faculty of Medicine at Lund University, the official degree is called a 'Doctor of Philosophy in Medical Science' (in Swedish 'Doktor i medicinsk vetenskap'). A PhD degree is the highest academic degree you can obtain.

The Postgraduate Education Committee has drawn up regulations and taken steps to ensure that the scientific thesis is of good quality and that students have obtained the necessary and sufficient skills during their education.
