Ph.D. in
Bioengineering and medical-surgical sciences
Phd programme jointly established by Politecnico di Torino and Università degli Studi di Torino administrative seat at PoliTo until XXXII cycle and from XXXVI, UniTo from XXXIII cycle and until XXXV
The establishment of a joint programme between Politecnico di Torino and Università degli Studi di Torino, providing a common high-level training for engineers, biologists, physicians, surgeons and dentists, has made it possible, in the last five years, to take significant steps towards alignment with the international situation, but also a novelty in the framework of national scientific and educational organisations. 
The doctorate is representing an effective incubator from which to develop, through an interdisciplinary collaboration at the research and training level, cutting-edge  methodologies and technologies which could provide an answer to most recent problems in biomedical research and to propose innovative solutions that could have a deep impact on reality of healthcare and production system. 
As training objectives, the Course, continuing the training course conducted in the first five years since its establishment, aims to: 
  • offer capable and motivated students an even more qualified training on the topics of current international research in the fields of Bioengineering and Medical-Surgical Sciences and in the interdisciplinary areas connected to them; 
  • integrate a solid theoretical-conceptual preparation with full mastery of the most up-to-date quantitative and qualitative research methodologies and techniques; 
  • combining the specialization of the disciplinary field and the plurality of theoretical and methodological approaches, in order to provide doctoral students with an easily expendable training. 
The Università degli Studi di Torino finances 3 scholarships for each cycle. The Politecnico di Torino financed 14 scholarships on the 36th cycle, 11 on the 35th, 8 on the 34th and 12 on the 33rd For the 35th, 36th and 37th cycles, thanks to the "Departments of Excellence" project of the Department of Surgical Sciences, there are two additional scholarships per cycle.
