Courses within the PUF-V programme

The Doctoral Programme in Health Care Science consists of a number of doctoral courses on basic level as well as on more advanced level.

Doctoral courses on basic level are offered on a regular basis and aim to give a broad orientation in design and research methodology. Doctoral courses on advanced level give a possibility for in-depth knowledge within a certain field or a particular methodology based upon the content in the basic courses.

The pedagogical keynote of the programme is that within the framework of the courses there should be room for applying the course curriculum on the students' own projects. This means that the content, assignments, practical exercises and examination of the course have its origin from the participant's own research project. This offers the possibility to continuously work on the student’s thesis within the scope of the course.

Application to courses is made directly in the Course catalogue at Karolinska Institutet. Courses are announced once per semester. The catalogue of courses is published around April 15 respectively October 15 and is open for applications during one month.

For a list of all courses and detailed descriptions, please see the KIWAS database.

For an overview of the course planning in the future, see the compilation of planned courses for KI's doctoral programme for the coming three years.

Suggesting a new course to PUF-V

Do you want to suggest a new course to PUF-V?

General information for arranging a doctoral course can be found here.

If you are interested in organizing a course which you think would fit in PUF-V, please contact the programme at puf-v@ki.se to get a form where you can describe your course proposal.

The deadline to send a course proposal is:

  • January 15 for a course planned for the Spring semester the following year
  • June 15 for a course planned for the Fall semester the following year

PUF-V's steering group meets twice each semester and assesses whether the course can fit into the program.
