  • Achieving 240 credits (if the length of the studies is shorter or longer, it is recommended
    to obtain an average of 30 credits per semester)
  • Meeting the requirements of an individual study plan
  • Successful completion of compulsory core courses
  • Successful completion of compulsory common faculty-wide courses (at least 4)
  • Successful completion of compulsory field-specific courses (at least 4)
  • Successful completion of an English language course

    • Alternatively, students may actively participate in an international project with results published or presented abroad or may collaborate with international partners; this is evaluated individually by the vice-dean based on an official student's application.
    • The application will be sent automatically for approval to the supervisor and the chair of the Doctoral Board. The Vice-Dean will make the final decision (approval/rejection) for Doctoral Studies.
  • Participation in the Annual PhD Conference in Biomedical Sciences
  • Participation in the CEITEC PhD Conference
  • Participation in teaching within the maximum range of 150 hours during studies.
  • Completing the TAC meetings
    • For students who commenced studies before 2017, the annual PhD Progress Day substitutes the TAC meetings.
  • Participation in an international conference
    • Students present their research outcomes (a talk or a poster) at the international conference of their choice at least once during their studies. Active participation at the conference is awarded by credits that the supervisor gives to the student within the course ´´professional training´´.
  • Publication of results of students' doctoral theses in an international journal with an impact factor.
    • Before the thesis defence, the PhD student must have at least one first author publication in an international research journal with an impact factor above the median IF in the field or have two first author publications with the IF in Q3.
    • Importantly, the affiliation of the Faculty of Medicine, Masaryk University must be listed.​​
