Graduate Certificate Programs

The Graduate Certificate in Clinical and Translational Science is the entry point for graduate-level training in clinical and translational science (CTS). The curriculum is designed to establish knowledge-based and skill-based competencies in communication, professionalism, critical thinking, and synthesis of knowledge, planning, management and assessment, and leadership in the following five areas: CTS methods and technologies, scientific knowledge, measurement and statistics, research integrity (research ethics and responsible conduct of research), and collaboration and team building. These competencies are required of all CTS scholars, regardless of level of training or academic concentration. The Certificate curriculum integrates scholars with diverse backgrounds and training into a common training environment with group assignments and shared professional socialization experiences. The hours earned toward the Certificate may be used by students who wish to continue their study and earn an additional degree, such as the Clinical and Translational Science pathway in the Master of Science in Medical Sciences or the PhD in Clinical and Translational Science.
