Applications for the Master of Science in Clinical Research


The MSCR program was created to provide additional training in clinical research for professionals whose careers in academic medicine would require them to successfully obtain consistent extramural funding as principal investigators on grants and/or for investigator/industry initiated clinical research projects. These trainees will become faculty in medical schools and will embark on a career in clinical research as the team leader - the goal being that they will be successful in obtaining grants from NIH and other funding agencies.

International Students
Foreign nationals are urged to submit complete information as early as possible. In addition to other official entrance credentials, those applicants whose native language is not English must submit the official results of the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL or IELTS score). The TOEFL or IELTS score must not be more than two years old. Final consideration cannot be granted to an international student’s application for admission until these official scores are received by the Office of Enrollment Management.

If an international applicant has graduated or will graduate from an institution that uses English as the language of instruction, the TOEFL may be waived upon request.
