GIS in Biomedical Clinical and Translational Science

Specialization in Biomedical Clinical and Translational Science for graduate students

The goal of the Graduate Interdisciplinary Specialization in Biomedical Clinical and Translational Science is to prepare graduate and professional students to be actively engaged in the field of clinical and translational science through academic training and research.

The core course in this program focuses on the basic components of clinical and translational science, while the electives allow students to pursue topics across the other health sciences colleges for an interdisciplinary experience.

As a result of participation in the program, it is expected that students will:

  • Develop skills in designing clinical and translational research studies;
  • Apply statistical procedures to clinical and translational research problems;
  • Develop skills for the communication of the scientific concepts and research questions in one’s own discipline to experts in other disciplines and to the public at large;
  • Understand how to involve the community in clinical and translational research; and
  • Build interdisciplinary/intradisciplinary/multidisciplinary teams to study clinical and translational research issues.

Completion of a GIS is noted on the student’s transcript.
