Improving PhD education

It was only today that I learned about ORPHEUS, the Organisation for PhD Education in Biomedicine and Health Sciences in the European System. Since I have been chair of the Educational Committee of our graduate school BCN since 2005, their aims have my special interest and I should have actually known about them sooner. They have published several interesting position papers as well.

They will organize their fourth meeting on 23-25 April 2009 in Aarhus which will have as its theme “Setting Standards for the PhD Degree in Biomedicine and Health Sciences”. Also accessible to PhD students!
