Certificates in Clinical & Translational Science
The Certificate Program in Clinical and Translational Science and the Online Certificate in Fundamentals of Clinical Care Research are intended for individuals already 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 certificate is designed for trainees who want training in clinical research but do not wish to commit to a degree program. Many students electing to enroll in the certificate programs are completing fellowship training at one of the Tufts University School of Medicine affiliated hospitals.
Application for both the traditional, 8-credit and the online 2.5-credit certificates is through the online application; details about required documents can be found on the Required Application Documents page.
