MS Program

Ken Kaitin Lecturing

The Master's Program is a two year, full time program and also serves as the entry portal for the PhD Program in Clinical & Translational Science.

The MS Program offers students the option of choosing among three areas of concentration: Clinical Discovery and Investigation, Clinical Effectiveness Research, and Practice to Policy Research. Other areas of strength are training in predictive modeling, translational and molecular epidemiology, decision analysis, and cost effectiveness studies. The diverse CTS faculty has expertise across this spectrum.

Graduates of the MS program typically become academic physicians whose careers involve research as well as patient care.
