The Doctoral Programme in Human Sexuality DPHS will open a new edition in 2021.
The first round of applications will open on February 1 and end on the 1st of March 2021.
The PDSH is the first and so far only Doctoral Program in Human Sexuality in Europe (and one of the few worldwide) and includes a network of partnerships with the most prominent international universities and research centers in the field.
Aimed at trained psychologists, educators, doctors, nurses, sexologists and other health and social sciences professionals, the PDSH seeks to promote advanced knowledge and the development of research in a relevant area, central to the well-being and biopsychosocial health.
The curricular structure of the PDSH is strongly oriented to the development of high quality scientific research skills over six semesters, and it is organised around five thematic areas – sexual education, gender, sexual medicine, sexual and reproductive health and clinical sexology.
The PDSH is taught in English and Portuguese and is a partnership between the Faculty of Psychology and Education Sciences, the Faculty of Medicine and the Abel Salazar Institute of Biomedical Sciences of the University of Porto.
The doctoral programme also offers access to a laboratorial resource: the Research Laboratory in Human Sexuality - SexLab is fully dedicated to experimental and psychophysiological research of the different aspects of human sexuality, and it has gained significant public and international media interest.
