Master of Science in Clinical Research: Overview

To receive the Master of Science in Clinical Research, trainees must complete a total of 30 credits including the core curriculum, the 2-semester Research Design and Development course, and the requirements for one of the specialty tracks that focus on research methodologies. Trainees who are interested may take additional coursework for an optional content specialization.

Depending on the clinical responsibilities of the trainee, it will take 2 or 3 years to fulfill the requirements for the MS degree. The directors of the program have scheduled many of the courses in a way that allows trainees to balance coursework with clinical and other responsibilities.

"I must say, I use my ICRE education daily in both the research and clinical aspects of my career, and I thank you all for providing such a solid foundation."
