Certificate in Clinical Investigation

The Certificate in Clinical Investigation is a 12-credit hour online non-degree program designed to provide initial clinical research skills and training to healthcare professionals, with track options of: Health Disparities or Health Behavior Intervention. The program is designed for junior faculty, fellows, other healthcare professionals and researchoriented individuals, who are not in a degree program but are seeking initial training in the methods and skills to conduct clinical research, but whose schedules may not accommodate traditional, classroom-based courses. Online, self-paced courses are moderated by experienced research scholars within the College of Graduate Health Sciences’ academic year schedule of fall and spring terms.

Students will need at least two semesters to earn a certificate if they follow the recommended plan for two courses in the fall semester and two courses in the spring semester. The minimum cumulative GPA needed for successful completion of the Clinical Investigation Certificate program may be no lower than a GPA of 3.0.

Requirements: Health professional degree or a bachelor degree, with a grade point average of at least 3.0 from an accredited college or university; official transcripts; and two letters of recommendation. In addition, applicants must have sufficient computer literacy, English-language literacy, and technical skills to participate in web-based, graduatelevel courses. A command of written and spoken English is essential. If there is cause to doubt the student’s proficiency in English, the program may, at its discretion, require additional examinations and/or other evidence of proficiency prior to registration.
