All CRTP candidates:
After your application is reviewed by the CRTP Adivisory Committee and if you are accepted into the program, you will then be considered for acceptance to the Penn State Graduate School.
After 15 Penn State graduate credits are earned, the candidate may stop and request a Clinical Research certificate, or go on to complete 15 additional credits for the Master of Science degree.
If you have not yet provided an official transcript, please request them to be sent to the PHS Graduate Program immediately from all post-secondary schools where you received a degree.
Each new student will be assigned an academic advisor from a list of qualified faculty members. The advisor will work with the student and mentor to craft an appropriate academic curriculum that starts in the fall semester.
