Clinical Research Training Program

The Masterís Degree in Clinical Investigation Program at Weill Medical College of Cornell University was established in the fall 2005 as a joint-teaching endeavor forged among Weill Medical College, the Graduate School of Medical Sciences and the Cornell University Ithaca Campus. The Masterís degree-granting institution is the Weill Graduate School of Medical Sciences, which shares the same campus as the Medical School.

The Program, originally funded by the National Institutes of Health through a K30 Curriculum Award, was subsumed under the Clinical & Translational Education Program (CTEP) as of September 2007 when Weill Cornell Medical College was awarded a Clinical & Translational Science Award (CTSA) and designated as a Clinical & Translational Science Center (CTSC). This rigorous yet flexible multidisciplinary program was developed to educate and train highly motivated individuals to become successful, independent clinical investigators -- as well as leaders for the advancement of scientific knowledge and treatment of human disease.

The Master's Degree Program in Clinical Investigation offers the option of two tracks for enrollment, namely a Certificate in Clinical Investigation in one year or a Master of Science Degree in Clinical Investigation in two years. The Certificate program is comprised of a wide array of core curriculum classes in clinical research. The second year of the Master's Degree Program track provides clinical research experience through a mentored clinical research project conducted on the General Clinical Research Center. Supplementary to the core curriculum, scholars pursue specific clinical interests through electives.
