Miller School Offers New Master’s Degree in Clinical and Translational Investigation
The Miller School is now offering a master’s degree in clinical and translational investigation. The new discipline of translational science is rapidly emerging as a pivotal structure to expedite the translation of important discoveries that improve health care. Although the scientific community has made significant strides in pursuing widespread adoption of translational practices, the progress is not enough. Science produced at the basic level still is not reflected adequately in clinical practices.
The Miller School recognizes this disparity and wants to offer better outcomes for patients and the opportunity for doctors and students to advance their work and remain at the forefront of trends in biomedical science. The master’s of science in clinical and translational investigation will create a structured educational program that offers trainees of diverse cultural and educational backgrounds formal graduate training in the principles and practice of translational science and clinical research.
