Master of Science in Health Sciences / Clinical & Translational Research

Program Details

The Master of Science in Health Science (MSHS) and Graduate Certificate in Clinical and Translational Research and the Graduate Certificate in Clinical Research Practice provide high quality education to researcher professionals through the use of a creative and innovative online format. The program was developed as a component of the Clinical and Translational Science Award granted to Children’s National Health System and The George Washington University. It prepares graduates to meet the needs of a more “translational” approach to research.

The curriculum includes a combination of courses focused on translational, interdisciplinary and health care research and leadership. Thus, the MSHS and Graduate Certificate will equip research professionals with the knowledge and skills to fill any number of clinical and translational research professions from funded scientist, clinical personnel, and those who mediate for better policy about health.
