The Graduate Program in Surgical Sciences is a program under the Graduate School and is aimed specifically to graduate students in the field of surgical research science. Our vision is to create a graduate program that can facilitate science in the surgical field within the highest international level. Through courses and facilitation of research activities and networking, we want to make sure that the future scientists improve treatment for patients within the surgical field. Our aim is therefore to build a platform for surgical scientists, where students and supervisors benefit from a scientific environment of the highest level.

We want:

  • To facilitate expert administrative guidance to our PhD students.
  • To facilitate scientific and scholarly excellence.
  • To offer courses targeted surgical scientists.
  • To strengthen networks between universities, research institutions and industry.
  • To organize workshops and conferences.
  • To support the interaction between graduate students in the different fields of surgical research science.
  • To promote internationalization through collaboration with PhD schools abroad.
