The Master of Science in Clinical and Experimental Therapeutics (MCET) program at the University of Georgia provides multiple options for candidates to choose between a 1-year (non-thesis) and a 2-year (thesis) curriculum, which augments student development for multiple career opportunities in clinical practice or research. 


Core and elective courses within the MCET program would foster successful completion of PharmD or MD training programs. Current UGA College of Pharmacy students can pursue a 1-year Master’s (non-thesis) during P3 or P4 years or complete an additional year post-PharmD for a dual PharmD/MS degree. Clinical and Experimental Therapeutics program at the University of Georgia is also suitable for BS graduates looking to improve their chances for admission to a Pharmacy or Medical School (Year 1 curriculum) and for post-graduate trainees (PGY1 or PGY2 residents) who seek initiating an independent research program in academia (Year 2 curriculum).

Program Description

The purpose of the Program in Clinical and Experimental Therapeutics (CET) is to provide graduate training in therapeutics-related research that directly connects the basic science laboratory with the clinical practice setting.

The CET Program provides interdisciplinary graduate training program in therapeutics and drug development research utilizing the combined resources of the University of Georgia and Augusta University in Augusta, Georgia.

This association facilitates interaction with the faculty of both institutions. Members encompass a variety of health-related backgrounds and education and include Pharm.D.s, M.D.s, and Ph.D.s. Their clinical as well as basic science expertise allows for a truly interdisciplinary and translational approach to graduate training.

While the course requirements for graduate students enrolled in the program cover both areas, research opportunities allow students to focus on either the experimental (basic) or clinical science track.
