The programme has been conceived in agreement with all the requirements and legislation of the Republic of Slovenia and meets all criteria for doctoral study established by the EUA. In this way, the direct inclusion of programme components in an international exchange with universities from other countries using the ECTS system is rendered possible.

The programme leads to the degree of Doctor of Science in the following fields: Basic Medicine, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Clinical Biochemistry and Laboratory Biomedicine, Clinical Medicine, Genetics, Microbiology, Neuroscience, Pharmacy, Public health, Toxicology and Veterinary Medicine.
