PhD4MD Medical Doctors Training programme is coordinated by the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona), the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG), the August Pi i Sunyer Biomedical Research Institute (IDIBAPS), and the Vall d’Hebron Research Institute (VHIR). IRB Barcelona and the CRG are two internationally recognized research institutes in the life sciences, while the IDIBAPS and the VHIR are international leaders in translational research.

The long-term goal of PhD4MD Medical Doctors Training programme is to train the next generation of physician-scientists who will drive research by complementing their medical knowledge with a thorough research background. The ultimate aim of the programme is to help discoveries made in fundamental research reach clinical practice.

In this framework, the four Institutes are recruiting highly talented and motivated candidates with outstanding qualifications to carry out a Ph.D. research project in biomedicine right after their medical specialization.
