Clinical outcomes research training for physicians & clinical doctorates

Learn about the MD/MPHS degree

The MD/MPHS program allows medical students to add clinical research methods training to their medical school experience. Students in our program work on a research project and use that project to complete MPHS coursework in 10 months, creating the ideal combination of didactic training and hands-on experience. MPHS leadership can help you find a research project or lab that fits your goals and interests.

Accelerate your academic research career

Broaden your expertise from how to conduct a single research project to the all-important why questions in clinical and population health research methodology and principles — the knowledge base needed for a career as a physician-researcher.


Boost your research quality & productivity

Learn in classes customized for clinicians and taught by faculty at a top medical institution renowned for teaching, patient care and cutting-edge research. Maximize your research productivity by using your current, ongoing research projects for course assignments. With no thesis requirement, the MPHS degree can be obtained in as few as 10 months, with part-time study options available.

Improve patient & population health

Gain a strong foundation in leading, designing and applying study results. We train physicians, clinical doctorates and medical students from all medical specialties using a population health research curriculum that covers: clinical epidemiology, biostatistics, comparative effectiveness research, clinical outcomes, randomized controlled trials and more.
