Master of Science in Clinical Research (MSCR)
MSCR programs are available through Emory University and Morehouse School of Medicine. The Emory Master of Science in Clinical Research (MSCR) is a formal 30-credit Emory Laney Graduate School program, provides innovative didactic and mentored research training to those interested in pursuing a career in clinical and/or translational research.
The MSCR degree is designed for predoctoral (medical students, PhD students or PharmD students), postdoctoral trainees (resident and fellow physicians or PhD postdocs), and junior faculty (physicians, PhD-level scientists or PharmDs) from Emory University (Emory), Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM), Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) and the University of Georgia (UGA).
Georgia CTSA financial support for the Emory MSCR program or MSM MSCR program for pre-doctoral trainees and postdoctoral fellows (resident and fellow physicians, PhD postdocs) is through the Georgia CTSA TL1 Core funding mechanism. Junior faculty may apply through the Georgia CTSA KL2 mechanism (if requesting Georgia CTSA financing support for the MSCR).
Applicants not requesting Georgia CTSA financing support (e.g. predoctoral and postdoctoral trainees support by NIH T32 training grants or other mechanisms) should apply directly to the Emory MSCR program or MSM MSCR program. Emory faculty using Emory Courtesy Scholarship to cover MSCR tuition should apply directly to the Emory MSCR program.
