Interested in clinical research?
Our master's program consists of a comprehensive introduction to clinical research in the first year followed by an original master’s thesis project in the second year. The classes are held in the late afternoon, twice weekly (Tuesday and Thursday), and are designed to be compatible with a busy clinical schedule. Lectures are recorded for review if a class is missed. The program aims at improving one’s chances of obtaining federal clinical grant funding and to facilitate a career in academic medicine.
You can find program information here. Funding assistance through LEAP benefits is offered to employees of Rush University Medical Center. Stroger Hospital residents, fellows and faculty may receive a tuition discount, financial aid, diversity and TL1 scholarships available.

“The Clinical Research MS program at Rush provided a robust and comprehensive exposure to all aspects of clinical investigation, trial design, statistics, and relevant regulatory policy and practice. I have found the training gained to be of immense benefit in my career as an independent clinical investigator and academic cardiologist.
