Clinical Research Training Program - About Us

Penn State Clinical Research Training Programs are based on an interdepartmental curriculum working in conjunction with the Graduate Education program in the Department of Public Health Sciences. It provides graduate training in clinical research for physicians, nurses, and other allied health professionals.

Penn State Clinical Research Training Programs have been made possible through the cooperation of Penn State clinical investigators who take time to teach and mentor, and  the Department of Public Health Sciences (PHS) which provides the courses.

There are three study options available to individuals who seek further education to help their career goals. The options include the Master of Science degree in Public Health Sciences, the Post-Baccalaureate Credit Certificate in Clinical Research or pursuing non-degree credits in graduate level courses for continuing education and professional development.

Please refer to the Graduate Program website for specific option information.
