The Master of Science in Clinical Research is a 2 year thesis requiring program designed to train advanced health care professionals to perform and evaluate clinical research. The course work is highly interactive and often requires discussion about experimental design and historically important clinical trials. Skills and techniques needed for epidemiology, outcomes and clinical pharmacology research are also provided. The emphasis of the program is to provide the skills needed for successful completion of an independent research project, submission of an application for an NIH K Award, and a career in clinical research.
