PhD Scientific Days 2018

Budapest, 19-20 April 2018

The Doctoral School of Semmelweis University organizes PhD Scientific Days every year, where the students can practice their ability to present research results and discussion skills during a conference. The PhD Scientific Days are also a great opportunity for our university's Excellent PhD lecturers to present their science oeuvre. In previous years, participation in the PhD days was practically voluntary. With the introduction of the new PhD training system, however, the event gives the opportunity to all students to get tested without exam stress before the comprehensive examination, which completes the first phase of the PhD program. On the other hand, the PhD Scientific Days offers the opportunity for the scholarship holders to give the compulsory conference presentation of the now-established Excellency Scholarship. That is why we expect more applicants than usual to apply for PhD Scientific Days in 2018. Organizers are prepared to ensure that the size of the conference venue would not be an obstacle to as much participation as possible. As the Head of the Doctoral Council I cordially invite our PhD students to the 2018 PhD Scientific Days.
