What is the relationship between the PhD day and a graduate board?

The graduate boards are official panels of researchers that supervise PhD programs at universities and recommend applicants for PhD programs. Students applying to the PhD study are obliged to name their future PhD supervisor. PhD day is an efficient way to find him/her.

If I do not manage to complete the application by the deadline, can I still participate in the PhD Day?

It is possible to contact your chosen supervisor directly and manage an individual interview with him/her.

If I do not participate in the PhD Day, can I still be accepted to the PhD programme at the Third Faculty of Medicine?

Yes, you can. The goal of the PhD Day is to bring the supervisors and applicants together on one day to find a match. Applicants can arrange their interviews with supervisors independently of the official PhD Day, but the vast majority of free positions are expected to be filled during the PhD day or by the applicants who already have established personal links with the participating clinics.


After admission to the PhD program, the student receives a fellowship of 11 000 CZK/month. Ask your selected supervisor for possible additional funds (e.g., part-time salary or other common opportunities.
