The Bonn International Graduate School Clinical and Population Science offers an international, research-oriented training program to doctoral students of various disciplines including medical doctors. Our three-year program covers a wide range of research areas that are relevant for clinical and population science with a methodical emphasis on genetics, imaging, and biostatistics. This interdisciplinary graduate school combines the expertise of outstanding scientists from the Faculty of Medicine, the Faculty of Agriculture, the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases in the Helmholtz Association, and the Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices. Thus, BIGS CPS doctoral students have the opportunity to work together with excellent scientists on highly relevant and interesting projects such as the Rhineland Study or the DietBB Competence Cluster in Nutrition Research. Students also are exposed to the latest techniques and methodologies in the research fields explored by our faculty. In addition to the scientific education we offer, we provide the students with a multitude of opportunities to further their scientific career by training their ability to effectively communicate their research results, options to attend career courses, and to become integrated into the scientific community at an early stage in their career development.
