The Master of Science in Clinical Investigation (MSCI) at Washington University is designed as a one to three year full- or part-time degree program for young investigators committed to pursuing academic careers in clinical research. The unique program combines didactic coursework with mentored research and career development opportunities and provides students with the knowledge and tools to excel in the areas of clinical investigation most relevant to their careers.Individuals who participate in a CRTC training program (i.e. Postdoctoral MTPCI, KL2, KM1 or K12) are eligible to pursue the MSCI degree as their didactic course of study. The MSCI is also available as a stand-alone program to individuals who are not US Citizens or permanent US residents.
The Clinical Investigation Curriculum has been created to provide didactic instruction in topics that are relevant and critical to all clinical research. Courses are open to scholars participating in affiliated Washington University graduate or post graduate programs, and to individuals with a post-graduate degree in medicine or health who are employees of a partner institution.
