Certificate Program in Translational, Entrepreneurial, or Regulatory Science
The Certificate Program provides training in translational science through the completion of four credit units of coursework and a research project. The certificate is designed for:
- PhD-level pre- or post-docs who want to extend their research into a clinical setting
- Pre- and post-graduate clinical trainees (MD, VMD, DMD, MSN) who want to enhance their expertise in clinical research to inform research at the bench
The program is built on three pillars: (1) a curriculum that focuses on clinical and translational science, entrepreneurial science, or regulatory science, (2) engagement in a one-year translational research project, and (3) active mentorship.
The Certificate Program can be finished in one year and requires the completion of 4 credit units with a passing grade of B- or better. There are three certificates from which to choose:
- Certificate in Translational Science
- Certificate in Entrepreneurial Science
- Certificate in Regulatory Science
Each certificate requires MTR 510 — Introduction to Clinical and Translational Research and MTR 600 — Introduction to Biostatistics. Other biostatistics courses may be substituted if taken in the past two years with a grade of B- or better.
The remaining 2 credit units of coursework comprise electives from the chosen certificate.
