Human Investigations Program applications due July 15

The Human Investigations Program (HIP) trains scientists in the principles of and best practices in clinical and translational research. It offers an integrated clinical and translational education curriculum. Participants can obtain a Certificate in Human Investigations or a Master of Clinical Research degree – and a non-degree track allows enrollment in individual courses.

The curriculum includes a wide variety of requirements and electives that will provide a rich background in human investigation – everything from the basic science of disease to biostatistics to evidence-based medicine and beyond.

The program is based on nationally recognized competencies for clinical and translational research and operates on a policy of inclusion – the basic qualification is any doctoral degree or enrollment in a doctoral program. HIP is open to faculty, clinical and postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students. Applicants should have a doctoral degree or be enrolled in a doctoral degree program within the SoM, SoD or SoN.

Application Deadline: July 15, 2013
