Meet to Greet

Meet to Greet

Meet to Greet: the name speaks for itself. During monthly sessions, you will meet other PPHS students and get to know each other while exchanging information and experiences regarding topics around the PhD journey such as publications, courses, fieldwork, tools for self/time management, etc. To attend Meet to Greet, keep an eye out for the email invitation by PPHS to all registered PPHS doctoral researchers.

Are you not registered in PPHS but are you matriculated at the Faculty of Medicine or a PhD student at Swiss TPH? We can send the Meet to Greet invitation also to you, just let us know.
