Training and Supervision
PhD candidates are in training to become independent researchers. As such, they need guidance and “on-the-job” supervision. Their PhD supervisor (promotor) is responsible for providing them with supervision, guidance and feedback. The PhD supervisor may decide to delegate elements of the supervision to one or more co-supervisors (co-promotors). In addition, other experienced researchers may help PhD candidates on a day-to-day basis.
PhD Track Support
A standardized monitoring and evaluation procedure will strengthen the AMC PhD program. About the procedure for midterm monitoring the progress of AMC PhD projects:"PhD Track Support". This procedure was formerly known as Peer Support
In cooperation with PhD candidate association APROVE, the AMC Graduate School holds introductory meetings for new PhD candidates.
PhD candidates build a portfolio with the intention of clearly and prominently demonstrating the results of the doctoral training program. They are required to include this portfolio in their PhD theses.
PhD Competence Model
AMC PhD candidates should be equipped to pursue a career inside or outside academia after their PhD track. Excellence in the doctorate level training of PhD candidates as highly qualified future professionals in an international environment is essential.
PhD candidate support and PhD Candidate Advisor
