Compensation for PhD graduates

Reimbursement of the costs for printing the thesis

Doctorate graduates have a right to claim a modest contribution to the costs for printing their thesis. The reimbursement for AMC PhD graduates is 500 euro net. This reimbursement can be claimed by all AMC PhD graduates. They can apply by completing the expenses claim form, which can be downloaded below.
The compensation for PhD graduates is charged on the unit that employs the PhD candidate or, when the PhD candidate is employed outside the AMC, the department/division of the PhD supervisor. The PhD graduate is entitled to this reimbursement, it is not a favour at the mercy of the supervisor. A letter communicating this decision by the AMC Executive Board has been sent to all AMC divisions.

PLEASE NOTE: As of July 1, 2014 the Office of Doctoral Affairs no longer handles these claims.

PhD Graduation Bonus: CAO regulation
The collective employment agreement of the AMC (CAO UMC) contains a provision for a PhD Graduation Bonus (art. 17.4.4). The AMR BV has adapted this provision in their Collective Agreement (art. 13a.1.10).

The provision is valid only for research trainees (Onderzoeker in Opleiding or OiO). All research trainees employed by AMC or AMR BV - and only them - are eligible for a gratuity of 750 euro gross. The gratuity is awarded only to research trainees if they succesfully obtain the doctorate during their four year contract. The bonus may not be balanced with other local compensation regulations.
PhD candidates employed elsewhere and those who are not appointed as research trainee do not qualify for the PhD bonus.

AMR personnel must use the
AMR Ltd (AMR BV) employees expenses declaration form (NL)/

to claim the AMC PhD Graduation Bonus.

AMC personnel can contact the departmental AMC HR advisor for the gratuity procedure.
