Doctorates

In addition to the classical dissertation with the grade "Dr. med. vet.", the Professors of the Vetsuisse Faculty also supervise postgraduates in PhD programs.

Who offers doctoral positions?

Direct inquiry at Professors of the Vetsuisse Faculty, advertisements and notices at the clinic or institutes.

The doctoral thesis can also be done in an external institution and submitted to the Faculty through a Professor.

Registration of Medical Professionals is compulsory

Under the revised Swiss Medical Professions Act, as of 1 January 2018 anyone exercising a medical profession requiring a university qualification and working in Switzerland must be recorded in the register of medical professions.

A successful registration is not equivalent to an official recognition and approval of a foreign diploma by the BAG!
