Objective: The Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate in Fetal and Perinatal Medicine (Fetalmed-PhD) is an innovative research and training programme allowing to achieve an internationally recognized PhD degree on fetal medicine. The programme contemplates research projects spanning all scientific disciplines and all maturational stages relevant to fetal medicine, from early fetal life to childhood.
The FetalMed-PhD programme is a unique consortium of three European centres of excellence on Fetal and Perinatal Medicine based in Barcelona, Leuven and Lund. The programme offers an exceptional educational scheme to PhD students. It is the first joint doctoral programme in the emerging field of Fetal Medicine. Activities combine science, technology, and innovation to promote a new generation of transdisciplinary researchers who are capable of closely working in association with other disciplines. Trainees are consequently empowered to work and apply solutions in different sectors, including obviously academia and industry.
