HIP is based on nationally recognized competencies for clinical and translational research. The curriculum includes a wide variety of required courses and electives that provide the basic foundations for clinical and translational research. Topics range from the study design, biostatistics, scientific writing, community-based research, evidence-based medicine and more.
The application involves a written component, letter of support from your department or mentor and transcripts.
The majority of HIP classes will be taught synchronously online while some classes will be offered in a hybrid format (i.e. primarily online with a few in-person sessions) pending approval for the upcoming academic year.
