In order to simplify the process, the Department of Medicine, Solna has a checklist. The checklist must be signed by the main supervisor and the head of the research unit (Note! Not the head of the hospital department).
The complete application, one original (one-sided) and 11 copies (two-sided), together with the checklist, must be submitted to the administrator for doctoral education (Lillemor Melander) at least five weeks before a scheduled meeting by the admission board (see dead line for application).
