Clinical Research Training Program (CRTP) Accepting Applications

Start the program in fall 2016

May 26, 2016

The Clinical Research Training Program (CRTP) of the Duke University School of Medicine / Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Department provides academic training in the quantitative and methodological principles of clinical research.  CRTP is designed primarily for faculty, fellows, and other health professionals.  The program offers formal courses in research design, research management, medical genetics, comparative effectiveness, translational methodologies, and statistical analysis.
 
A degree option in the program leads to a Master of Health Sciences in Clinical Research, a professional degree awarded by the School of Medicine.  An advanced degree in a clinical health science (or two years of medical school) from an accredited institution is a prerequisite for admission either as a degree candidate or as a non-degree participant.  In addition, CRTP offers a non-degree option for individuals interested in taking one or more courses.
 
The program is now accepting applications for the academic year 2016-2017. For a detailed description of the program, the course offerings, and a link to the online application, visit the CRTP website at http://crtp.mc.duke.edu.  Applications will be accepted through August 1, 2016.  For priority review, applicants should submit completed applications prior to May 15, 2016.  Registration for fall term courses is 
July 11-July 22, and classes begin on August 29.
