Who we are

The team of the doctoral college consists of students from different disciplines (e.g. medicine, biology, psychology), who offer different course formats as tutors as well as advise on general doctoral questions. There is also a coordinator for organisational matters. The individual course concepts were designed by the students themselves and evaluated by experts.
