MOL Program

MOL Program

The MOL PROGRAM is for students just before graduation or young resident and specialty doctors. Furthermore any healthcare specialist can apply who fulfill the criteria listed below. During the 1-year extensive program they can learn all the methodologies and then put them to use in their own research facilities when they return home. Scientists will have the opportunity to write their own first-authored articles. We offer help in learning the methodologies and provide statistical support. Regular group meetings will be held to report on progress. Good communication skills in English are required. Those participating in the MOL program will follow the first year training of the Translational Medicine PhD training at the Semmelweis University. We also provide the possibility to join as a PhD student.
