The PhD Program Medical Research in Epidemiology & Public Health is an international and interdisciplinary program headquartered at the Institute for Medical Information Processing, Biometry and Epidemiology (IBE) of LMU Munich.

Each PhD candidate works in close collaboration with their Thesis Advisory Committee to define the specific research aims and curricular content of their studies. This individual tailor-made training and supervision concept ensures that the needs of each PhD candidate are met on their way to obtaining their degree.
Through a structured and stimulating curriculum – including courses, seminars, workshops, a Journal Club and an annual retreat – the doctoral candidates have the opportunity to connect and exchange information with their fellows as well as with professors and visiting researchers.
