The Department conducts post-graduate studies in several fields of research in Medical Science. We currently have approximately 160 graduate students.
Postgraduate education at Karolinska Institutet (aiming for either a licentiate or Ph.D. degree) is largely based on the student's personal research project, which is complemented with courses and clearly specified knowledge requirements. It requires normally a total of fours years' full-time postgraduate education to acquire a Ph.D. degree.
Education is open to Swedish and foreign students.
