Courses - Doctoral programme in health care science

Denna sida på svenska

The programme consists of a number of doctoral courses - on basic level as well as on more advanced level. The doctoral courses on basic level are offered on a regular basis and aim to give a broad orientation in design and research methodology The doctoral courses on advanced level give a possibility for in-depth knowledge within a certain field or a particular methodology based upon the content in the basic courses.

The courses are announced in the KI course catalogue for every semester

The basic courses and the advanced courses are in terms of time offered according to a rolling schedule from a 4 years’ perspective in relation to the progress and the need of immersed knowledge within a topic or a method. The ambition is that the basic courses will be organized once a year.

The pedagogical keynote of the programme is that within the framework of the courses there should be room for applying the course curriculum on the students own project. This means that the content, assignments, practical exercises and examination of the course have its origin from the participant’s own research project, which in turn offers the possibility to within the scope of the course continuously work on the student’s thesis.

For a list of all courses within the programme on basic level please see below. Different courses on advanced level are given each semester, please see below or contact peter.annas@ki.se.

For a list of all courses and detailed descriptions, please see the Syllabus database.
