University Hospital for Visceral, Transplantation and Thoracic Surgery

We pay special attention to the supervision of diploma theses. The seed of the concept that has been implemented for years, namely to inspire students for surgery and thus to secure the next generation of surgeons via diploma theses, research laboratory (also as post-doc), PhD studies (also part-time) up to the staff member of VTT, is working. It is our highest interest to attract well-trained, academic surgeons to the VTT.
Therefore, if you are interested in writing a diploma thesis with a surgical topic, you will find currently advertised projects and the corresponding contact persons in our thesis exchange. 
This link will take you to the application form for diploma theses of the Department of Teaching and Student Affairs of the Medical University of Innsbruck.
In principle, a diploma thesis should include a retrospective clinical investigation, which should be the basis for a possible subsequent PhD study and eventually lead to a habilitation.
For the diploma thesis a validated documentation system (ChiBASE) of the VTT is available, which offers all criteria for a "Registry embedded Clinical Trial" (auditability) and thus has the highest evidence to be achieved in health care research. For dissertation and postdoctoral research, we can additionally draw on basic research laboratories (DSL and TKFI).
If you are interested in one of the topics, please contact the respective supervisor by e-mail. The name of the supervisor is linked to the respective e-mail address.
