Emory Master of Science in Clinical Research
The Emory Master of Science in Clinical Research (MSCR) degree program, from the Laney Graduate School at Emory University, provides didactic and mentored clinical and translational research training. The degree is designed for participants at Emory University and Georgia Tech who hold a doctorate or equivalent degree (such as physicians and PhD-level scientists) and have demonstrated a commitment to a career in clinical investigation. Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM) applicants apply at MSM. Pre-doctoral (medical or PhD graduate students at Emory University) may apply to the MSCR program through the TL1-Medical Scientist Training Program (dual-degree program).
The MSCR requires a minimum of 30 academic credit hours, which include classes, a research thesis and a written grant proposal. Full time students complete two semesters of class work in the first year. The summer and second year consist of completing required rotations (IRB and Clinical Research Network), research project, thesis and grant. Mentoring is by an established and successful federally-funded clinical investigator.
Global Health and Bioinformatics tracks are available – please see Course Descriptions.
Admission is rolling and applications are accepted until the class is full. For selected qualified applicants, a limited number of tuition scholarships are available from the Atlanta Clinical & Translational Science Institute (ACTSI).
