Welcome to PPHS!

All new PhD students of Health Sciences related subjects such as Clinical Research, Epidemiology, Medicines Development, Nursing Science, Sport Science, Biomedical Engineering, and Infection Biology are warmly welcomed by PPHS at the bi-annual PPHS Welcome Event. If you are not yet enrolled in PPHS, you can also register to PPHS after the Welcome Event.

At the Welcome Event, you will get information about PPHS (Who are we? What do we offer?) and our services (funding, courses, etc.). Furthermore, you have the opportunity to get to know other PPHS students and ask questions.

Buddy System

The buddy system was established in early 2020. As a new PPHS student, you can request a buddy who will assist you during your first year. Buddies are second- or higher year PhD students who are available for any questions you might have. These questions do not only refer to PhD regulations like PhD proposal, learning agreement, etc., but also about topics in the private domain, e.g. housing, insurance, public transport, clubs, and societies, etc., or any other question you have.
