Graduate Certificates

Clinical Research Graduate Certificate

The Graduate Certificate in Clinical Research offered by the Clinical Investigator and Translational Education (CITE) Program is a post doctoral training program.  Most applicants accepted into the program will have to hold a doctoral degree (e.g., MD, PhD, DNS, and DDS) or be in training for a doctoral degree.

The Graduate Certificate in Clinical Research is a 14-credit program, with 3 required courses (Clinical Research Methods, Research Ethics, and Clinical Trials or Biostatistics).  These 3 courses constitute 8-9 credits; the remaining 5-6 credits will consist of graduate-level elective courses that are relevant to the student's clinical research interests.  Generally, students will average 6 credit hours in each of the fall and spring semesters to complete the likely course sequence over a 12 to 18 month period.
