In response to concerns of COVID-19, and consistent with guidance from the Chancellor's office, the Clinical Research Certificate program will provide the option of remote learning via prerecorded lectures or interactive online lectures in addition to in-person lectures. Exams will also be moved to an online format. Should students feel the need for in-person meetings with faculty, we will accommodate such meetings in a setting which will allow for appropriate social distancing. At this time, we have no plans to cancel classes and are currently accepting enrollments for Spring 2020. As new information becomes available, we will share this with our students. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.
The Clinical Research
Certificate Program developed in partnership with the UC Irvine School of Medicine, is designed to prepare medical students,
academics, physicians, industry and hospital based researchers to conduct, implement and interpret clinical research at the intersection
between basic science and clinical medicine. It is designed to bring diverse disciplines together to address the increasing gap
between “bench” research and “bedside” application and from bedside application to improved healthcare quality.
Who Should Enroll
The Clinical Research Certificate is ideal for practicing physicians, junior faculty in clinical departments, residents, academics,
industry, hospital based researchers, fellows and 4th year medical students and others who are interested in the conduct, interpretation
and implementation of clinical research that translates biomedical discoveries into clinical practice, improves the delivery
of high quality care and informs health care policies.
Courses within this certificate program carry full graduate course credit at UCI’s School of Medicine and most can be directly
applied to the school’s MS degree in Biomedical and Translational Sciences (MS-BATS). Students will be able to concurrently
enroll in these courses via Concurrent Enrollment through UCI Division of Continuing Education.
