Each fellow is required to obtain a certificate in Clinical Research from the Bioinformatics Department at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine. Coursework is expected to be completed prior to finishing fellowship.
The graduate certificate program is comprised of the core courses offered in the Master of Science in Bioinformatics Clinical Research Track Curriculum. It is a valuable credential for health care professionals (e.g., junior faculty, clinical fellows, physicians, nurses, pharmacists, dentists, clinical research coordinators) who want in-depth exposure to essential tools needed to advance their research career.
The Graduate Certificate in Clinical Research curriculum includes 15 credit hours of required coursework. The program consists of five core courses (3 credit hours each) from the Master of Science in Bioinformatics Clinical Research Track curriculum. The courses are:
- Biostatistics I
- Clinical Research Methods
- Clinical Epidemiology
- Clinical Trials
- Overview of Health Services Research
