DCs will also be able to network with other doctoral candidates and with prominent researchers in the field, from Finland and abroad. Doctoral candidates have the opportunity to present their research by giving a talk/ presenting a poster

The recommended time of completion is at the beginning of the studies. Organised annually in the autumn term

KLTO Science Day will focus on the different aspects of clinical research. In addition, current doctoral programme issues are discussed.
