General Description
1
Brief History
Department of Pathology of UU Institute of Health Sciences offers PhD training as part of the postgraduate program. The graduates are entitled "PhD of Pathology". During the PhD training the students are expected to define and diagnose diseases macroscopically and microscopically, inquire information about disease development, and to be able to give diagnosis independently. They are also required to have a multidimensional oversight about problems and collect multidisciplinary information. The students are expected to follow the developing biotechnology and apply biotechnological diagnostic methods. The students have to follow recent developments in pathology, to follow literature, to plan scientific projects in their field of interest and take part in the ongoing projects of the department. The students improve their literature review, seminar preparation and presentation skills by presenting a literature review and a seminar each semester.

Qualification Requirements and Regulations
For the PhD degree, the student has to pass all field and common compulsory courses by receiving at least 75/100 from each course. Institute compulsory courses are Biostatistics (7.5 ECTS), Development and Learning (no credits), and Planning and Assessing in Teaching (no credits). The students has to gain a total of 32.5 ECTS from the field compulsory courses Necropsy Principles, Sampling and Fixation Techniques; Material Sampling, Sectioning and Staining Techniques; Cell Development Disorders, Diseases and Pathology at Cellular Level; Inflammation, Healing and Repair; Pathology of Urinary System Diseases; Digestive System Pathology; Nature and Causes of Diseases: Host, Agent and Environment Interactions.

Profile of The Programme
During the PhD training,students learn how to gain correct and fast information and how to apply this information to practice. In order to develop investigative character and hand skills, they are expected to take part in experimental studies of the department. Students get courses from other departments to have a wider scientific perspective and to have a multidimensional approach to topics. As a PhD graduate, the student is expected to carry superior skills regarding knowledge level, abilities, scientific understanding.

Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading
PhD Program at the Department of Pathology is given by two professors, one associate professor and two assistant professors.
Scientific research in Department of Pathology focuses on the diseases of mammalian and avian species. Samples from the field and experimental studies are investigated under in vivo and in vitro conditions. Histochemistry and immunohistochemistry are used for the investigation of both field and experimental samples. Cell culture laboratory is used mainly for in vitro studies and modelling of diseases. The Department also houses a necropsy hall and separate laboratories for histopathology, molecular pathology and immunohistochemistry, and cell culture.
