An important aim within GROW is the training of master- and PhD students in these fields of modern medicine and molecular life sciences. Therefore, we annually organise master classes, symposia etc., for these master and PhD students, postdocs and senior staff to update their skills and competences, to broaden their academic view, and to increase awareness with respect to research ethics and integrity.

PhD training programmes at FHML/MUMC+

The aim of the PhD education programme at the Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences (FHML) / Maastricht UMC+ is to promote development of a high level of competence in the specific research field, but also in more generic, transferrable skills that are important for high-level professional careers in research, education, and clinical practice.
