Program Information

Degrees Offered:


Format: Campus

Program Description:

It is aimed at junior faculty in clinical departments, fellows, residents, 4th year medical students, physicians and others with a solid basic science foundation who are interested in developing the skills needed to conduct, interpret, evaluate and apply clinical research. This degree program is also appropriate for those with doctoral preparation in other disciplines who are interested in clinical research. The recent rising interest in evidence-based medicine, comparative effectiveness research and the science of quality assessment and improvement, make the MS-BATS program particularly timely. This program has been developed to address the acute needs for clinical researchers trained to meet the increasingly sophisticated demands of the clinical research environment. Interested graduate students wishing to apply for the Fall 2012 entrance into the program will need to apply by January 17th, 2012.
