Program Basics

The Masters in Clinical and Translational Investigation program is a one to three–year 30 credit program that includes:

• Completion of structured content courses;
• Participation in small group interactive seminars;
• Completion of a K-award, R21, or R01-type interdisciplinary clinical/ translational research proposal that will serve as a thesis or a formal master thesis;

All the above to be evaluated by a thesis committee consisting of one member of the Steering Committee, two faculty members, each representing one component of the translational focus (T1, T2, T3) of the student, and another investigator not affiliated with the K30 program.

Successful completion of the MSCTI will require a GPA of 3.0 or greater with no grades below C in any courses (these can be retaken and improved grades substituted) and successful completion of the thesis project.

The application deadline is May 1, 2013.
