03/Aug/2017

The SNSF, the SAMS and the Swiss cancer research foundation will support eleven young medical doctors in doing their PhDs

The national MD-PhD commission have awarded fellowships to 11 of the proposed 21 young medical doctors aiming to do a PhD.

Three organisations are sponsoring the fellowships in 2017: the Swiss Academy of Medical Sciences (SAMS), which leads the initiative, will finance one fellowship, the SNSF seven and the Swiss cancer research foundation (KFS) three. The fellowships will be managed by the SNSF, with the beneficiaries receiving 60,000 francs per year for a maximum of three years. This is intended to help them cover their subsistence costs while they work on their PhD thesis.
