The School of Medicine of the University of Athens, in partnership with the University of Milano-Bicocca, announces the launch of a Postgraduate Cooperation Programme (PCP) that will run for 18 months, leading to a Postgraduate Diploma (MSc) in “Endovascular Techniques”. The Programme also offers the option of obtaining a PhD in the scientific field of modern Endovascular Techniques for the treatment of arterial and venous disorders.
The Programme commences in early February 2023 and includes two (2) academic semesters of compulsory attendance of classes and one (1) semester for preparing and drafting a dissertation to conclude the MSc. A total of ninety (90) credits (ECTS) is required to obtain the MSc.
The PCP in “Endovascular Techniques” accepts graduates of the 1st round of studies at the University of Athens School of Medicine, as well as graduates of university departments in Greece or abroad recognised by the Hellenic National Academic Recognition Information Centre (NARIC), and institutes abroad with studies related to health sciences.
Scholars and members of the categories of Special Teaching Staff (EEP), Laboratory Teaching Staff (EDIP) and Special Technical Laboratory Staff (ETET) are accepted as supernumerary, in accordance with Article 34(8) of Law 4485/17.
The maximum number of enrolled students is 15.
Once enrolled in the Postgraduate Programme, students must pay the relevant operating expenses, which amount to 750 euros for each of the first two semesters and 500 euros for the third semester, which corresponds to the dissertation (2,000 euros per student). The fees are paid at the beginning of each semester.
Candidates must have very good working knowledge of English. Proof of satisfactory knowledge of English is a key condition for the evaluation of candidates.
Interested parties may submit the following supporting documents (information is available on the School of Medicine website) from 26/09/2022 to 20/01/2023:
Students from institutes abroad must submit the recognition certificate, or the ref. no. of the application submitted to Hellenic NARIC for recognition of their degree, in accordance with Article 34(7) of Law 4485/17.
The successful candidates will be selected by the SC based on the following criteria:
Based on the criteria overall, the SC compiles the students’ Evaluation Table, which it then submits to the Special Interdisciplinary Committee.
Successful candidates must enrol at the PCP Secretariat before the start of the PCP classes.
In all events, the maximum number of candidates cannot exceed fifteen (15). If the number is exceeded due to a tie, the successful candidates among those who tied for last place are selected based on their performance in the following order: oral interview, degree grade, publications and research activity.
If one or more students do not enrol, the runners-up, based on their ranking in the approved evaluation table, will be invited to enrol in the Programme.
