Doctoral programme Environmental Factors and Health
The doctoral programme Environmental Factors and Health (EFH) seeks to offer a high quality doctoral education in areas of toxicology and risk assessment for PhD students at Karolinska Institutet (KI) and to be a platform for collaboration with other national and international universities and organisations that provide education in toxicology and risk assessment. By combining the efforts of the Institute for Environmental Medicine and the Department of Biosciences and Nutrition with the expertise provided by the groups joining KI from Stockholm County Council a new and more competitive doctoral programme has been developed.
The specific objectives of the doctoral programme EFH are to provide:
- A high-quality doctoral education in toxicology and risk assessment.
- Networking for doctoral students and supervisors contributing to transfer of knowledge andskills in toxicology and risk assessment.
- Collaboration and joint course organisation with other postgraduate programmes and master programmes at KI and with national and international universities and organisations that provide education in toxicology and risk assessment.
The EFH programme includes the following activities:
- Courses in toxicology and risk assessment
- Networking workshops for doctoral students and supervisors on research topics and complementary skills.
- Web based networking
- Teacher workshops
The EFH programme can provide scholarships for students that wish to attend doctoral courses given by collaborating universities in Sweden (Umeå University and Royal Institute of Technology) or abroad within the EU-funded projects RA-COURSES and TRISK.
