Program Overview

The Clinical Research Scholars Program (CRSP) is designed for individuals committed to a career in clinical investigation (either as a lead researcher or a non-clinician research team member) in an academic or related field. CRSP offers a Master's Degree in Clinical Research through two pathways - Thesis Pathway or Capstone Pathway.

Training in both clinical research and career development provides CRSP Scholars with an educational experience that prepares them to identify a research question and critically evaluate relevant literature; transform the question into a feasible and valid study design; develop and execute the study protocol; and analyze and effectively communicate the findings.


The program resides in the School of Medicine's Department of Population and Quantitative Health Sciences (PQHS). The academic units involved include the Schools of Medicine, Nursing, Management, and Dental Medicine. The faculty is selected for their expertise and commitment to teaching and mentorship in clinical investigation. They are primarily drawn from the Departments of Medicine, Pediatrics, and PQHS from the School of Medicine.
