The research school in general practice should be regarded as complementary to the mandatory PhD courses organized within the different medical faculties and will establish a menu of teaching and learning activities counting as parts of the optional ph.d. programme.
New PhD candidates will be admitted to the research school through national advertisements once a year. The PhD project has to be within the field of general practice (however, the research fellow does not necessarily has to be a GP him-/herself), appropriate funding for the PhD candidate has to be obtained before enrolment. Candidates should also be enrolled in the PhD programme of the home institution. One selection criterion is that the candidates should be in the first half part of their studies.
