Clinical and Translational Science, Grad Certificate

School of Medicine

Program Description:

The Certificate Program in Clinical and Translational Science (CTS) is designed to meet the needs of a variety of learners who are seeking exposure to clinical and translational research competencies.  The CTS Certificate Program, along with the Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences, Clinical Research concentration (MS-BIOM-CR), is an educational component of the UNM HSC Clinical and Translational Science Center (CTSC). The CTSC is a Health Sciences Center initiative to integrate and expand the reach of biomedical research from the laboratory to clinical and medical practice: promoting a bench to bedside to community effort. Increasingly, pressing global health problems have led educators to accelerate the training of clinical, basic science, and translational researchers. Therefore, this program will provide students the basic tools necessary to translate scientific discovery into actionable solutions.

Admission Requirements:

The CTS Certificate Program is open to individuals that have already completed doctoral-level training in the areas of basic science, public health, medical, clinical, engineering or social science (MD, PhD, PharmD, ScD, etc). Individuals with a strong interest in expanding their skills in Clinical and Translational research who are receiving additional training at UNM (i.e. post-doctoral and clinical fellows), or those that are currently employed at UNM as junior faculty are strongly encouraged to apply. Additionally, students currently seeking a graduate degree in these areas may be considered for admission, if space is available.
