About

Offered by the Department of Biostatistics, the Master's in Clinical Research Design and Statistical Analysis (CRDSA) Program at University of Michigan was developed in a non-residential format to provide a means for working professionals who are interested in clinical research to develop expertise in research design and statistical analysis while continuing their professional employment.

Overview

The Clinical Research Design and Statistical Analysis program is designed to improve the quality of clinical research and to address the shortage of persons with clinical expertise who are trained in quantitative research methods. These problems reflect the increasing complexity of clinical research, the increasing value of that clinical research, and the limited training of health professionals in research design and statistical analysis.

Program Description

The University of Michigan School of Public Health pioneered the non-residential OJ/OC format in 1972. Approximately 300 students have successfully completed the CRDSA program since then. Participants meet in Ann Arbor at the School of Public Health for a four-day weekend (Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) once every four to five weeks for thirty hours of class time. Between weekends on campus, participants complete course assignments and work on projects while remaining on their jobs. This Master of Science Degree Program lasts nineteen weekends.
