Programs prepare people for careers in clinical and translational research
Interested in obtaining MS or graduate certificate in clinical and translational research? Deadline to apply is July 1.
May 25, 2012 College News - The Clinical and Translational Science Institute of Southeast Wisconsin (CTSI) is sponsoring the Master of Science in Clinical and Translational Science and the Graduate Certificate in Clinical and Translational Science programs at the Medical College of Wisconsin. The multidisciplinary programs, which are offered through the MCW Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, prepare researchers to become leaders of the next generation of clinical and translational investigators.
The Master of Science in Clinical and Translational Science program is designed to meet the translational research training needs of health care professionals, clinical investigators, research scientists and individuals working in biomedical industries. The concentration options are epidemiology and outcomes research, translational research and commercial development of drugs, biologics, devices and diagnostics. It is a 30-credit, two-year program with multidisciplinary faculty and a flexible, executive format class schedule. It is open to students with or without advanced academic degrees. Students complete a foundational curriculum focused on translational research, study designs, clinical trials, biostatistics and bioethics.
The Graduate Certificate in Clinical and Translational Science, a new program offered in conjunction with the MS program, begins in Fall 2012. The program will consist of coursework in one of two main focus areas of clinical and translational science – translational research or commercial development of drugs, biologics, devices and diagnostics. Students will participate in core and elective courses currently being offered through the MS program. The certificate program will offer 12 graduate credits, the majority of which may be applied toward the MS Program in Clinical and Translational Science.
The application deadline for both programs is July 1. Applications can be submitted to the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences.
