Overview of Clinical & Translational Science Programs

Clinical and translational science (CTS) spans basic biology, clinical medicine, and community health policy to understand and develop new approaches to improving human health. CTS investigators need to appreciate how biologic and non-biologic aspects of health care interact to influence individuals and populations.

The CTS graduate programs include master’s and doctoral degrees and are intended to be flexible to facilitate the training and career development of a robust clinical and translational research workforce and to give individuals with diverse backgrounds, working with faculty from many disciplines, an educational pathway to prepare them for their roles as important and productive contributors to CTS.

Visit the CTS Blog to read about upcoming events, and recent activities.

Students applying to the MS or PhD must have a source of funding, a research advisor and an environment in which to conduct research as part of the application.
