PhD in Nursing Sciences

The demographic shift in Switzerland, the transformation of the health care systems and the increasing pressure to contain health costs require highly qualified professional caregivers.

The Doctoral School of the Faculty of Biology and Medicine provides an opportunity for the nurses holding a master’s degree and two years of professional experience to achieve a doctorate in nursing sciences and engage in a scientific career. 

The doctoral thesis of that curriculum will focus on paediatric care, nursing care for the elderly, chronic diseases, oncology or palliative care.

This PhD in nursing sciences is offered by the Institut universitaire de formation et de recherche en soins – IUFRS and affiliated with the Faculty of Biology and Medicine of the University of Lausanne.
