MS in Clinical Research

The Master of Science in Clinical Research (MSCR) program is comprised of a two year curriculum that provides an exceptional and dynamic educational experience. Our program attracts outstanding health professionals, such as clinical/postdoctoral fellows, junior faculty, veterinarians, advanced practice nurses, allied health clinicians, and other trainees (MD, MD/PhD, and basic science PhD students) with the knowledge, skills, and experience to successfully launch clinical and/or translational research-intensive careers. The program is designed to be completed in two years. However, you may choose to complete your coursework over a longer period of time.

The MSCR has two main components:

  • Graduate courses including biostatistics, research design, data analysis, and grant writing
  • A mentored clinical research project leading to a Master’s thesis.

In addition, our MSCR students now have the option of pursuing our new Translational Oncology track which focuses on training in patient-oriented research from bench to bedside. Please visit our Translational Oncology page for more information.
