The overall goal of the Graduate Program in Clinical Investigation (GPCI) is to prepare successful and productive clinical investigators who will sustain research careers in the area of patient-oriented clinical research. This degree program is designed for individuals interested in a research career in academia, industry, research institutes, health agencies, or regulatory agencies.
The plans of study and specific courses taken by students completing a Ph.D. degree typically vary based on student interest area(s) and prior experience. The PhD in Clinical Investigation has specified core course requirements and, as befits a research doctorate, a substantial curricular focus on learning to conduct research studies with the mentorship of a major professor. Students’ prior coursework and learning experiences will be considered in developing each student’s plan of study. Students must complete a PhD minor, under Graduate School requirements, with UW-Madison graduate course work.
