Psychiatry PhD Graduate Programme – University of Copenhagen

Danish Psychiatric Research Programme is organised as a network of psychiatric professors and associate professors, senior researchers and PhD-students from research milieus at the three affiliated universities.

In Denmark we have possibilities for conducting research from gene to clinical practice. We can conduct basic psychiatric research with neurobiological, psychophysiological and neurocognitive assessments can expand our understanding of pathogenetic mechanisms.

We can conduct high quality register based research that cannot be conducted anywhere else in the world, and we can link information from neurobiological and register based research with biological material from national biobanks.

Danish psychiatrists have initiated large high quality randomized clinical trials in which pharmacological and psychosocial interventions were tested.

The research programme will include PhD training courses, seminars and international collaboration.
