Master of Science in Clinical Research
Our Master of Science in Clinical Research program is designed to give advanced health care professionals in the areas of medicine, nursing, or pharmacy the skills needed to perform and evaluate clinical research and gain the knowledge needed for successful submission of an application for an NIH K Award. This program can be completed while the student is still holding a full-time job.
This two-year, thesis-bearing program offers one year of didactic lectures offered on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons followed by one year of mentored clinical research experience. During your program, you also will learn advanced skills in epidemiology and clinical pharmacology research.
Key courses include:
- Ethics in biomedical research/IRB
- Introduction to the regulatory process
- Clinical trials
- Tools for research
During your second year, you and your assigned mentor will begin to outline your research project. You will then be encouraged to write a first author manuscript summarizing your work and submit that manuscript for review.
