Graduate Certificate in Clinical Research Practice

The graduate certificate in Clinical Research Practice (CRP) capitalizes on the foundational courses of clinical research methods, ethics, epidemiology, and biostatistics to prepare clinical health professionals interested in learning the requisite knowledge and skills to conduct clinical research. The CRP certificate would enhance the practitioner/provider to be a partner and collaborate in clinical research and the audience encompasses any provider who is interested in learning about Clinical Research Practice (i.e., MDs, PAs, PTs, OTs, Nurses, SLPs as well as all of the students of these disciplines).    

The program of study has been drawn from the core program of study of the MSHS program; however, the Graduate Certificate in CRP encompasses a total of 15 credit hours.
