Program Details

The Certificate in Clinical Research Program is a 12-credit-hour, online, non-degree program designed to provide initial clinical research skills and training to healthcare professionals. Junior faculty, fellows, other healthcare professionals and research-oriented individuals, who are not in a degree program, who seek initial training in the methods and skills to conduct clinical research, but whose schedules may not accommodate traditional, classroom-based courses should enroll in this program.

The online, self-paced courses are moderated by experienced research scholars within the College of Graduate Health Sciences' academic-year schedule of fall and spring semesters. Not all courses will be offered every semester, so students may need at least two semesters to earn a certificate if they follow the recommended plan for two courses in the fall semester and two courses in the spring semester.

The Certificate program includes the following online courses: Fundamentals of Clinical Investigation, Biostatistics for Public Health, Principles of Epidemiology, and Ethical and Legal Issues in Clinical Research.
