Clinical Translational Science - Master of Public Health

The Master of Public Health in clinical translational science helps allied health professionals and medical students develop the knowledge and skills to broaden their connections between medicine and public health using research and how it will be delivered to care of people through prevention or treatment.

Throughout the program, health scientists harness their specialization expertise and apply clinical translational research design principles with the facets of public health to improve patient care.
