PhD Program at Center for International Health
The PhD program in Medical Research - International Health at the Center for International Health (CIH) at LMU Munich combines health related research in the widest sense and development cooperation. Special focus lies in educating young researchers to become in their turn educators within developing countries and thus the next generation of health professionals. Not only acquisition of knowledge for their personal interest, but to import knowledge to areas in need and multiply it there should be one leading work ethic while being a PhD student at CIH-LMU. This motive is complying with global development strategies that have recognized the human resource crisis as a key factor in the deterioration of health systems in developing countries.
The PhD program is open to anyone, particularly candidates from developing countries, sharing the interest in health-related issues in the field of development cooperation. Individuals working in the field of health or in health related areas that are willing to improve local research and health situations both through manpower and knowledge are encouraged to apply.
