Clinical Epidemiology, MSCE
The MSCE is an intensive program for accomplished medical professionals who seek to further their skills as academic investigators. Applicants who possess an advanced degree in medicine, nursing or another health field learn to design controlled epidemiological studies and acquire biostatistical skills that relate directly to their research interests. With close guidance from a primary mentor and a mentorship team, students will gain the ability to hone precise research questions and pursue reliable, complex answers.
The MSCE degree is comprised of 14 course units consisting of required core courses, electives, and mentored thesis credits. MSCE students generally register for two course units per term. It is expected that all students receive a B- or better in each of the courses being applied to the MSCE degree.
