Davenport Campus Only
How long is the M.S. degree program?
The MS in Clinical Research program takes 2 years or 6 consecutive trimesters to complete. All graduate students are enrolled in the Fall Trimester.
The program is offered on the Davenport Campus only. Courses are not available on the West or Florida campuses or via distance learning.
Generally, we only enroll graduate students on a full-time basis.
The M.S. in Clinical Research program is only offered as a full-time on-campus program on the Davenport Campus. The on-campus program allows you to have “hands-on” experience in a research clinic setting on federally-funded clinical studies, experience working within research teams, and close interaction with the program’s faculty.
Typically, the rigor of both the D.C. and the M.S. degree programs does not allow for simultaneous enrollment.
Tuition is $419 per credit hour. As a full-time graduate student in the M.S. in Clinical Research program, you may qualify for a tuition waiver.
Tuition waivers and research assistantships are available on a competitive basis.
Once I complete the program, what can I do with my degree?
There are several career options. Typically, our graduate students complete this program as an avenue toward a faculty or administrative position at a chiropractic college or to begin a career in research. Because the M.S. program is fully accredited, graduates of the program have the option to pursue continued training, such as pursuing a Ph.D. or other postdoctoral training, as the beginning steps toward a research career. See the career page for more information.
