Doctorates and PhD-Programs

PhD Health Data Sciences
The newly established PhD program Health Data Sciences is designed for qualified young scientists who would like to deepen their methodological knowledge in the fields of biostatistics, epidemiology, meta-research, population health science, or public health and further expand their competence in research and teaching.
Information on the new structured PhD program in Health Data Sciences (HDS) can be found on the website. Annual application window: March 1st - April 30th.

Individual doctorate
Students studying medicine at Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin or at another institution can apply for a doctorate at the IPH. Unfortunately, however, our staff capacities for supervising doctoral students at the IPH are limited. Publications in scientific journals are the declared goal of an individual doctorate at the IPH. If you are interested in an individual doctorate in the field of Public Health / Epidemiology, please send your request with a detailed description of the study project and your curriculum vitae to PD Dr. Christof Prugger.
