The M.S. in Clinical and Translational Investigation (MSCTI) at the University of Miami offers a structured, individualized, and mentored educational program that trains students in the principles and practice of translational science and clinical research. Our multidisciplinary program prepares clinicians and researchers to adapt to translational science and overcome the perceived bottlenecks that inhibit translational research. We equip our students with the tools to navigate the complexities of translational research design, methodology, regulatory, and ethical challenges. 

The MSCTI Program builds on the Miller School of Medicine‚Äôs mission to educate the next generation of biomedical leaders and to conduct, implement and lead life-changing discoveries that transform patient care through innovative research. Its mission is to educate the next generation of team scientists who demonstrate the ability to review, design, and conduct high-quality, multidisciplinary clinical and translational research independently and work collaboratively in multidisciplinary research teams.

Our educational objective is to provide an instructor- and mentor-led educational curriculum that introduces students to key areas of clinical and translational research and produces graduates who demonstrate core competencies in those areas. Students learn how to design independent and collaborative research projects and become well-versed in key aspects of clinical and translational investigation.
