Clinical Translational Sciences degree offered by the University of Arizona is intended to provide the foundation for a research career in the Clinical Translational Sciences.
To achieve this aim, the student requires:
- an adequate base knowledge of biostatistics and CTS coursework that is specific to the student’s health-related discipline or clinical interest (e.g. Surgery, Cardiology, Neurology, etc.)
- experience and training in research, culminating in a major research project
- professional development including experience and training in presentation and publication of research findings, preparation of grant applications and teaching.
The mission of the Master’s program is to provide an avenue for the student to gain more experience in and exposure to the diverse areas of the clinical translational sciences and to offer a mechanism for the student to obtain in-depth knowledge in a specific area of medical research. To this end, students will participate in a specific laboratory or clinical research project in the laboratory/clinic of a CTS faculty member.
“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”
