About

In the fourth year of the Hygiene, Preventive Medicine and Epidemiology program at Masaryk University, the students are expected to focus on the publication of their results, for the reason that the acceptance of an article by academic journals, especially those with a measured impact factor, usually takes at least one year from its submission.

Overview

After the students complete all of the required courses from the first year of studies, their individual study plans are further designed to ensure they will focus on literary research and compose the theoretical segment of the doctoral thesis in the second year and also to ensure they are involved in pedagogical activities.

Furthermore, the individual plans of the Hygiene, Preventive Medicine and Epidemiology program at Masaryk University are eventually allowing them to complete some of the elective courses and apply for the final state doctoral examination. In the third year of studies, the primary focus is the collection of data for the practical segment of the doctoral thesis and also the presentation of partial results at academic conferences. Simultaneously, the students are encouraged to become involved in pedagogical activities.

They should also complete their doctoral thesis and, after their publications are accepted, apply for the admission to the defence of the doctoral thesis, and thus successfully finish their doctoral studies.
