The Master Degree in Epidemiology and Clinical Research provides students with the skills essential to patient-oriented clinical research, including epidemiologic methods and statistical analysis.
Many students are clinical investigators with an MD or comparable clinical degree, often in fellowship stages of their training or already junior faculty members. The program also considers applicants from doctoral programs in the social, behavioral or biological sciences, who are interested in a concurrent master degree and wish to apply epidemiologic techniques in their areas of research interest. The program also serves as a rigorous introduction to epidemiology and clinical research for students with baccalaureate degrees who anticipate careers in clinical epidemiology or medicine.
The PhD program in epidemiology and clinical research will provide methodologic and interdisciplinary training that will equip students to carry out cutting-edge epidemiologic research. The program trains students in the tools of modern epidemiology, with heavy emphases on statistics, computer science, genetics, genomics, and bioinformatics. We welcome applicants with diverse backgrounds.
