About

We offer a master degree in Clinical Investigation at University of Wisconsin Madison. Clinical investigation is a field in which teams of health care professionals, biostatisticians and others imagine, design, and conduct clinical research, and then take discoveries to human or animal patient populations in the health care system or in communities.

Overview

Key Features

The graduate program in Clinical Investigation (GPCI), at the University of Wisconsin Madison, offers a 30-credit M.S. degree.  The focus of GPCI is to provide physicians, clinical scientists, and other health care professionals with the knowledge and skills needed to conduct and translate basic science discoveries into clinical applications through patient (human or animal)–oriented research.  The M.S. program trains students to help move research toward solutions for patient populations more quickly.

Applicants ideally will have a health professional degree (M.D., DVM, Pharm.D., Ph.D., BSN, BSE, MPT, DPT). Clinical Investigation students are unique among UW–Madison graduate students because they enter the program with a terminal degree (with exceptions) and they are seeking training to directly apply their work with patients.
