The Medical School EWL will provide quality-assured scientific qualification for all career stages by means of structured programs and in this way support young scientists in their scientific and clinical career paths. With a view to the individual life situation, a major focus here is on the often difficult compatibility of research activities with clinical training or work in patient care.
A research-oriented, scientifically sound and interdisciplinary education is designed to prepare students for doctoral studies already during their studies. On the one hand, this is offered within the framework of a structured doctoral program leading to the degree of Dr. med. In addition, students will be enabled to complete the doctorate in interdisciplinary, postgraduate programs.
After the doctorate, the further career steps of the graduates shall be supported and specifically promoted by specific offers in accordance with the different career paths for Medical and Clinician Scientists.
A multi-stage Clinician Scientist program is intended to enable a continuous, modular scientific-medical career path "from specialist training to professorship". The program provides for release phases for the implementation of own scientific objectives supported by a head of a research group of the Medical School EWL, binding target agreements, and an accompanying qualification program and career mentoring. Within the framework of the program, a special focus will be placed on the compatibility of family, medical work and research. A particular concern is the promotion of young female scientists.
