Clinical Translational Science

This specialization in the Master of Public Health degree is intended for clinicians who would like additional training in the methods most applicable for research in applied clinical settings. It draws on the tools of biostatistics and epidemiology along with such important considerations as law and ethics.

A combination of classes, seminars, and mentored individual study helps students develop the ability to function as independent investigators.

Recommended Preparation
The curriculum in clinical translational science draws heavily on epidemiology and biostatistics, so students should be prepared for the quantitative demands of those fields. In addition, because of the nature of the work, the specialization in clinical translational science is limited to persons who have a clinically-related doctorate (e.g., MD, DO, DDS, DVM, PharmD) or who are in a combined degree program for that degree along with the MPH.
