Clinical Outcomes Research Training for Physicians and Clinical Doctorates
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.
Gain a strong foundation in leading, designing and applying study results. The MPHS program trains 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.
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 ten months, with part-time study options available.
The MD/MPHS program provides medical students with an opportunity to add clinical research methods training to the medical school experience. Medical 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. Our MPHS program leadership can help you find a research project or lab to work in that would provide a good fit for your goals and interests.
