MTR 6400 and HCMG 8670 are .5 CU each. Students are recommended to enroll in both courses to fulfill 1 CU.
Students may take elective courses outside of these recommendations, by substituting a different MTR/REG course or a course outside of MTR/REG, but must obtain permission before enrolling.
The certificate requires a one-year engagement in clinical and translational research. This will take the form of a new research project or as a translational arm to research currently being conducted. Prospective students will identify a mentor and define the research project at the time of application.
