Summer Term 2016

Course Structure

The program for doctoral and postdoctoral students comprises 4 semesters (I to IV), each consisting of 3 consecutive modules [(1) to (3)]. At the end of each semester, on completing all 3 mandatory modules, a certificate is being issued. Requirement: attendance of at least 80%.
The following modules are offered during summer term 2016:
(1) Lecture “Sensory Systems – Basics and Principles II”
(2) Progress Reports – Progress in Neuroscience Research of the Retina and the Inner Ear
(3) Compulsory attendance of an Optional Course – the third module can be freely chosen from a list of existing courses/lectures/seminars offered at the Department of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck, the University Eye Hospital or the Institute for Ophthalmic Research.
