Sign Up For the 8th Saltin International Graduate Course in Exercise and Clinical Physiology

Posted on 06.02.2024

The 8th Saltin International Graduate Course will take place from Sunday, August 18 to Thursday, August 22, 2024, as a 3½-day residential PhD course at Sandbjerg Gods in Sønderborg. The PhD Course will bring together 40 PhD-students and more than 20 faculty from universities in Canada and Denmark. The course will focus on exercise and clinical physiology, integrating foundational knowledge with frontier research directions from basic science and applied approaches. The 2024 course is a “joint venture” between three Danish universities (Aarhus University, University of Southern Denmark, and the University of Copenhagen) and several universities in Canada, including the University of British Columbia Vancouver and the University of Ottawa.

This biennial, integrative research-based course alternates between Denmark and Canada and covers basic and applied science topics on various physiological systems and extends to common clinical physiological applications. Thematic areas in physiology will range from subcellular signaling to organ function and systemic integration.

The Saltin International Graduate Course aims to enhance academic and research networks between Danish and Canadian research institutions to enrich graduate student learning, faculty interaction and exploration of future research initiatives that result in student mobility, development of new programs, projects, partnerships, student involvement, and likelihood of longevity of collaboration. Furthermore, the course will provide a platform for launching national and international research funding initiatives.

The Course format consisting of faculty plenary lectures, student research presentations, and extensive seminars is intended to maximize student-student and student-faculty interaction, enrich learning, and inspire creativity in research.

Target Group

The 8th Saltin International Graduate Course is aimed at PhD students from universities in Denmark and Canada with a background as MD, MSc or equivalent, who are interested in exercise physiology, clinical application of exercise or exercise and public health. Preferably, the PhD student should have initiated his/her research project. PhD students with a relevant background are welcome to register. Enrollment is limited to 25 students from Denmark.

The PhD course will give a credit of 3.7 ECTS
