Why Clinical & Translational Research at Georgetown?

Clinical and translational research, and systems medicine/biosciences, are becoming increasingly central approaches to understanding and addressing barriers to health and health care. While there are several mechanisms that support mentored research training for subspecialty fellows, junior faculty, and members of the research team, clinical and translational research increasingly requires focused, rigorous, and targeted didactic training.

Graduates of the Master of Science in Clinical & Translational Research at Georgetown University are prepared for careers as clinical faculty in medical centers, as investigators in pharmaceutical or medical device industries, as employees of clinical research organizations or federal agencies, and in support oversight roles within academic organizations or directorship of accredited specialty/subspecialty training programs.

Our program helps students become well versed in foundational aspects of research methods as well as the essential clinical research methods. Our coursework prepares students with skills in project design and associated grant preparation, effective communication of research results and emerging powerful tools for clinical investigations that can be applied and implemented in their work environment.
