core courses in the M.S. in Clinical Research program are generally
offered in the same trimester each year. Electives are offered as needed
or as faculty are available. During the first year, coursework includes

and allows them to focus their studies in the areas of clinical
biomechanics, clinical neuroscience or experimental clinical research.
The typical schedule of the core courses.
in their graduate studies, a student selects a clinical research
faculty member as their primary mentor to chair their Graduate Advisory

two additional members to serve on the GAC. This committee guides the
student in creating a professional development plan, registering for
core courses, planning additional coursework to support their research
emphasis, and developing their research practicum projects.
