PhD Program

In 2017, the Doherty Insitute will offer its inaugural PhD Progam.

This multidisciplinary program will offer PhD candidates first class research training in their primary discipline, with the additional breadth of real-world experiences and training opportunities beyond their immediate research topic across epidemiology, clinical and translational research, infectious diseases surveillance, outbreak investigations and more. This powerful combination of training experiences will give graduates a competitive advantage to allow them to establish fulfilling and influential careers across academia and beyond.
