Graduate Program in Clinical Investigation

The focus of the Graduate Program in Clinical Investigation (GPCI) is to provide physicians, clinical scientists, and other health care professionals the knowledge and skills needed to conduct and translate basic science discoveries into clinical applications through patient (human or animal)-oriented research, commonly known as bench-to-bedside research. Patient-oriented research includes the study of disease, therapeutic interventions, development of new technologies, and clinical trials.

The program welcomes students who want to pursue research careers in academia, industry, at research institutes, or with health or regulatory agencies.

Students in the GPCI program work hard to gain a substantial foundation from which to lead a lab, present research, fulfill lab funding agency requests, and mentor other scientists.

Clinical Investigation graduate students plan and communicate with trans-disciplinary research partners at a level nearly unparalleled on campus.

Deadline for MS and PhD applications is February 1

Forms are accepted year-round for declaring a Minor in Clinical Investigation or pursuing a Certificate in the Fundamentals of Clinical Research.

Information about tuition and fees, guidelines for international students, and more is available through the University of Wisconsin-Madison Graduate School at The GPCI graduate program is administered by the Institute for Clinical and Translational Research.
