The doctorate is the highest academic degree awarded in the Netherlands. It is proof that the PhD candidate is capable of conducting independent research of a very high standard, under the supervision of at least one full professor, culminating in the successful defense of the doctoral thesis. It takes about three to four years of full-time research and study to complete a PhD project at the AMC. The Graduate School provides PhD candidates with information about registration and course information.
