Dual MS in Medical Sciences/MS in Clinical Research Boston University




Course info


Boston University School of Medicine currently combines two successful programs under Graduate Medical Sciences: the Master of Science in Medical Sciences (MAMS) and Master of Science in Clinical Research (MSCR) programs. A review of curricula, student interests and goals, emerging careers for professionals with a background in the medical sciences and clinical research suggested the need for a Master of Science in Medical Sciences and Clinical Research Dual Degree Program.

Some students elect to complete the Dual Degree Program to gain a clinical research background prior to attending medical school. Others intend to pursue clinical research-related career opportunities in academic institutions or in pharmaceutical, biotechnology, or medical device industries. The Dual Degree option gives these students an opportunity to gain training that will serve them well as clinician-researchers.

Degree Requirements


The 50-credit Dual Degree Program in Medical Science and Clinical Research offers complementary curricula with a strong background in the medical sciences and research design and implementation. The model curriculum for the dual degree program (below) can be modified to meet specific student needs.

This unique program includes curricula in medical sciences and all of the key elements in clinical research offered in a dynamic hospital and medical school environment. The program is designed as a two-year full-time experience, although accommodations can be made for students who need more time to complete the dual degree. Senior faculty with clinical and research expertise will both instruct and mentor students throughout the program. A capstone project, completed during the second year of the program, is designed to demonstrate research skills. Students will also complete a clinical research practicum in either an academic institution or in industry.

In addition to core coursework, graduates will develop fine-tuned clinical research skills as part of their successful completion of the practicum and capstone project. Students completing the program will be concurrently awarded both a Master of Science in Medical Sciences and a Master of Science in Clinical Research.
