Program Description:

The Master of Science, major in Clinical Research, program is designed to train health care professionals to perform and evaluate clinical research. This program is administered through the dean's office of the Graduate College, and is designed to capitalize on the translational/interactive atmosphere that exists within Rush University. The two-year, thesis-requiring program involves one year of didactic lectures followed by a one-year, mentored clinical research phase. Both phases are designed to provide the necessary skills needed to perform clinical research in the 21st century. The course work is highly interactive and often requires debate about experimental design and historically important clinical trials. Skills and techniques needed for epidemiology, outcomes and clinical pharmacology research are also provided.
