Certificate Programs

Certificate in the Fundamentals of Clinical Research

Certificate options include a Capstone Certificate for non-degree seeking students, a Professional Certificate for students currently enrolled in professional degree programs (PharmD, MD, DVM, etc.) and a Graduate Certificate for students currently enrolled in a graduate program (Masters or PhD).

The objective of the Fundamentals of Clinical Research certificate program in clinical research methodology is to provide formalized training and a practicum in research design and statistical analysis for professionals in health care, biotechnology, and in the pharmaceutical industry.

To conduct clinical studies adequately, it is necessary to understand the principles of research design and statistical analysis. With the increasing complexities in clinical research, it is imperative that clinical researchers receive a minimum training in clinical research methods.

Important note: The Capstone Certificate in the Fundamentals of Clinical Research is not open to international students.
