The Medical Faculty at Lund University has approximately 1100 PhD students placed at five different departments in both Lund and Malmö. The Medicine Doctoral Student Council (MDR) is the doctoral student council at the Medical Faculty, and we represent PhD students in 25 different boards and committees, including the faculty board, departmental boards, research education committee, boards of strategic research areas etc.
There is a wide diversity between PhD students at the Medical Faculty, comprising students within pre-clinical, clinical and health sciences research areas, all encountering different questions and challenges during their studies. MDR serves as a meeting point for this heterogeneous group, and the common goal is to identify issues and improve the quality of the doctoral education. At present, we are looking over the organization of the council and how we can make MDR more visible for all PhD students at the Medical Faculty.
All interested PhD students at the Medical Faculty are very welcome to contact MDR for more information!
