Clinical Research offers new degree program
The Emory Clinical Research Curriculum Award Program is adding a new resource for training and career development called the Emory Program in Clinical Research.
Since 1998, the Award Program has allowed participants to earn a Master of Science in Clinical Reserach (MSCR) degree, designed to prepare faculty and fellows for careers as clinical research scientists.
The Emory Program in Clinical Research is designed for faculty and fellows in the School of Medicine who are unable to pursue the MSCR degree, and for those who already have some clinical research experience or training, but would like to take a few classes.
Faculty members are eligible for courtesy scholarship benefits for five hours of coursework per semester. Contact Human Resources for more information.
To register for courses, you must apply as a student in special standing. For more information, contact Dollie Daniels at 404-727-8712 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
