The aim of the thesis is to report on innovative and original clinical research that contributes to the advancement of knowledge in the medical sciences. The thesis must be prepared with technical and scientific rigor and will be presented and assessed by an academic jury in public examinations. An absolute requirement for the admission of the thesis is the inclusion of three original articles published or accepted for publication in an international journal indexed in the ISI Web of Knowledge.
Learning outcomes and competences
The skills to be developed include the ability to independently design and carry out clinical research with scientific and academic rigor; the ability to communicate with the general society on the subject of the thesis; and the ability to promote the interconnection between research and clinical practice.
The doctoral student, with the support of their Follow-up Group, must build the ideal training profile needed to carry out their research work, reconciling the professional duties with obtaining the skills inherent in the 3rd cycle of studies. The initial training path is discussed with the thesis supervisors and validated by the Program Direction.
