EUCLID, an intergovernmental treaty-based institution with a university mandate, offers to select students from the general public an online PhD in academic medicine with a focus on clinical research and academic (faculty) careers. Its vision is to bring to a wider and Global South audience the world-class best practices taught and experienced at our two institutions of reference: Stanford and Cedars-Sinai.
It is, to date, the only PhD program in this field offered by an international intergovernmental organization.
Its purpose is to prepare highly qualified academic and research medicine professionals able to serve in civil service, international organizations, health care institutions, universities, as well as non-governmental organizations globally.
Important note: this is not a medical practice program and does not result in students obtaining an MD, DO, MBBS or other credentials associated with the practice of medicine. Either incoming students already have such credentials, or come from nursing, pharmacy or public health and seek to advance to academic teaching and research without the intention to practice clinical and licensed medicine. MD/PhD programs do exist (notably in the United States), but this program is not an MD/PhD program.
Academic, theoretical and research medicine are unique areas of expertise that should not be confused with the traditional-clinical practice of medicine.
Few programs are truly international in scope so as to fully prepare graduates for global civil service or corporate careers that will engage a wide variety of academic and research medicine challenges with a number of elective courses, including vaccine research, drug development, and academic leadership, etc.
To answer this challenge, EUCLID has designed a world-class doctoral curriculum, which is presented here with full documentation of syllabus and faculty resources, as well as total tuition. This documentation will enable potential students to determine if this program is suitable and aligned with their career objectives.
This unique PhD program focuses on the practical and policy aspects of academic and research rather than the advancement of purely theoretical knowledge.
This doctoral program was primarily designed to serve civil servants of EUCLID’s Participating States, but it is also open to the general public as an excellent route to pursue a career within inter-governmental bodies, NGOs and the public sector.
Thanks to its low tuition and institutional relationships, it is expected to be of special interest to Global South/African students.
EUCLID is the only intergovernmental, treaty-based university with a UN registered charter and recognized expertise in diplomacy. Join the alma mater of ambassadors and senior officials globally.
