Clinical & Translational Science Program Website

The goal of the Clinical and Translational Science (CTS) Program is to positively impact the translation of research into improved clinical care and public health. To accomplish this goal, the CTS Program offers a PhD Program, a Master's Program, and two distinct certificate programs, a traditional, classroom-based program and an online program.  This suite of programs allows individuals with varying degrees of interest and time to take advantage of this training.

All of the CTS Programs are intended for individuals trained in the medical sciences, most commonly fully-trained physicians. Others with similar backgrounds (e.g., DDS, DVM or PharmD) or advanced biomedical or clinical degrees may also be considered. 

The Clinical and Translational Science Programs are offered as a collaboration between the Sackler School and the Tufts Clinical and Translational Science Institute.
