Health and Biosciences Doctoral programme - Internal Call for Proposals for Field Specific Courses and other Doctoral Training Activities 2022

Health and Biosciences Doctoral Programme (HBS-DP) will allocate funding to be used during the year 2022 to organize doctoral training courses or other training activities within the following Doctoral Degree Programmes: Medicine, Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine, Health Sciences, Dentistry, and Biology.

The proposed doctoral training activities may comprise e.g. field-specific courses, symposia, workshops or alike targeted to doctoral students. Joint or methodological courses suitable for several disciplines and courses/events arranged in local, national or international cooperation are also applicable.

For the 2022 HBS-DP encourages applicants to plan courses that enables PhD students’ participation also with remote connection. However, fully face-to-face or/and practical course proposals are also welcome.

Practical arrangements of the courses are expected to be taken care of by the responsible course organizer (research unit, research group etc.). All cost covered by the doctoral programme (DP) funding must be accepted by the DP beforehand.

ECTS credits from the courses should be defined in the proposal according to UniOGS recommendations. The proposal should contain lectures, possible reading materials or possible optional assignments thus the course could give minimum 0.5 credit points.

If the number of course participants is limited, the priority is for the health and biosciences doctoral students within the University of Oulu.
