The Master of Science in Clinical Research is a degree program offered by the Department of Biomathematics in the School of Medicine. The program was developed as a joint effort between the Departments of Biomathematics and Medicine and the K30 Program. This program is designed to provide rigorous training to physicians and other health professionals, from a variety of clinical disciplines, with the techniques and processes utilized in patient-oriented research. The curriculum provides, through didactic course work and a mentored research thesis, a strong foundation in the computational and statistical sciences, fundamental methods of clinical trials, biomedical ethics, and principles of clinical pharmacology. Trainees who successfully complete this program are awarded a Master of Science in Clinical Research degree from UCLA.
