The Study program Experimental surgery is aimed at studying the theoretical foundations of medical disciplines that use surgical procedures in the broadest sense. The topic of the research is molecular, structural, metabolic, and pathophysiological changes of damaged cells, tissues, and organs which take place during the development of pathological processes, possibly with their experimental induction, and which are surgically affected. Special attention is paid to issues of reparations and healing of various tissue structures. These processes will be explored in genetical, immunological, and endocrinological contexts. Based on the above specialization, experimental surgery will be established topics for graduate studies in various medical fields (disciplines - surgery, orthopedics, urology, plastic surgery, gynecology and obstetrics, otorhinolaryngology).
Specific topics in various specializations will be determined by the supervisor always combined clinical and theoretical work.
The duration of doctoral degree programs (PhD. programs) in biomedicine is at least 4 years, with the possibility to participate in international projects.
Graduates in Experimental surgery Postgraduate Doctor degree studies in Biomedical Sciences (Ph.D. programs) are usually physicians who have deep knowledge of theoretical disciplines and control the basic and the advanced laboratory techniques. The graduates should be able to build a hypothesis, select appropriate methods to test the scientific hypothesis, interpret the results of their work, publish in scientific journals (with impact factor), and present the result on scientific symposia and congresses. Graduates in the Ph.D. program in Experimental surgery have the excellent qualifications to advance with his/her career in surgery and to achieve university degrees.
