The essential aim of this Ph.D. in Palliative Care is that the student acquires knowledge in research in Palliative Care and as well as that the student gets the necessary skills and capacities for a more human and competent professional exercise in palliative medicine. However, three factors seem essential with regards acquiring a Ph.D. in Palliative Care: the student must master a specific subject completely, the student must extend the body of knowledge about that subject, and he/she need to become a successful independent researcher.
Any graduate with the bachelor or master degree in Medicine can apply for the Ph.D. in Palliative Care, as well as graduates in other areas of biological, life and health sciences. It could also be accepted the application of graduates of other scientific and professional backgrounds after careful analysis by the scientific committee of the program. Other graduates with a proved capacity that attest the capacity for the accomplishment of this Ph.D. can also be accepted by the Scientific Committee.
