The Master of Science (MS) degree program is a broad-based multi-disciplinary graduate level program in clinical research designed to prepare clinical and translational research faculty, residents and others for a career in clinical research.  


The program provides training in the principles and methods of biostatistics; epidemiology, including genetics and clinical trials; and outcomes research, including health services research and health economics; and application of these principles/methods to clinical research.

We have a number of educational programs that we can tailor to an individual student’s career goals. The disparities in treatments, and access to health care, between majority and minority populations are a source of unnecessary suffering for this nation and MSM is dedicated to making real progress toward solving the problem.
