PPHS Student Representatives

The PPHS student representatives represent the interests of PhD candidates at PPHS and in the transition from PPHS to the new Graduate School of Health Sciences (GSHS). They are in regular contact with the PPHS coordination. As the student representatives are part of the PPHS steering committee and the GSHS working group and therefore a direct line between you and the governance of PhD program activities.

You can contact your PPHS student representatives for example…

  • …When you have suggestions for improving the situation of PhD candidates at PPHS
  • …When you believe that there are too few courses offered in the field of health sciences research or transferable skills
  • …When you face troubles with your own PhD and don’t know who to contact best
