Organization for PhD education in Biomedicine and Health Sciences in the European System
In April 2004, a European Conference on Harmonization of PhD Programmes in Biomedicine and Health Sciences was held in Zagreb. It became clear that PhD programmes are so different that even a PhD title has a different meaning in different parts of Europe.
In Zagreb Conference 2005 it was proposed to create a European organization of PhD studies in biomedicine and public health to ensure further European activities. ORPHEUS - ORganization of PhD Education in Biomedicine and Health Sciences in the EUropean System, is legally registered in Zagreb, since 2007. It closely collaborates with AMSE and WFME.
