Regulatory and Clinical Research Management - Clinical Research Management Track
The Master of Science Degree in Regulatory and Clinical Research Management - Clinical Research Management Track is designed for candidates who have baccalaureate degrees in the sciences or healthcare, or who are currently working in clinical research (with permission of Director). Candidates for this program are men and women who wish to advance in or seek a career in clinical research. Typical graduates work as clinical research associates or managers in medical product companies, clinical research organizations, or medical research centers.
This program allows the student to focus on clinical research. Electives allow the student to pursue other areas of interest, such as product regulation, health economics, reimbursements, health policy, or quality systems and risk management.
Students acquire skills, knowledge, and field experience that allow them to enter or advance careers in clinical research.
To be admitted into the program, applicants must have a bachelor’s degree. If the bachelor’s degree is not in the sciences or healthcare, the applicant must have appropriate experience in clinical research, healthcare, or medical products, and the permission of the Graduate Program Director.
Master of Science candidates complete 11 courses of study (33 credits), which include six core courses including a field experience project, three Clinical Research track courses, and two elective courses.
The program is flexible to fit the schedule of working professionals. Evening or weekend courses are offered. Virtual classroom technology allows even more flexibility. The program can be completed in fifteen months by candidates who choose to take three courses during most terms. Most students choose to take fewer courses, earning their degree in two to three years.
