The Sackler School offers several opportunities to take courses and to participate in research to individuals who have not applied or matriculated into one of our degree programs.
Certificate in Clinical & Translational Science
The Certificate in Clinical & Translational Science Program was developed by the Clinical & Translational Science Program faculty and is offered as a partnership between the Sackler School and the Tufts Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute. The program is specifically designed for physicians and health care professionals who seek training in clinical research but do not wish to commit to a degree program.
