Life Sciences and Clinical Investigation Dual Degree

Degree Types: MS/PhD

The Driskill Graduate Program in the Life Sciences (DGP) and the Master of Science in Clinical Investigation (MSCI) is dual degree program leading to the PhD and MS degrees.  The DGP/MSCI degree, leverages CTSA and NUCATS Institute resources to extend integrated clinical/translational research training to DGP PhD students. This dual degree is designed to connect PhD trainees in life sciences early in their research experience with clinician investigators who can help them see the value of understanding the clinical needs of patients. These DGP/MSCI trainees will have a more informed perspective on the intersection between translational and clinical research. They are positioned to become bi-directional collaborators and innovators in this critical space.

Graduates of this program will be uniquely positioned to work in multidisciplinary teams in academic, corporate or government positions to accelerate the translation of research discoveries that improve human health.

See DGP/MSCI Degree Requirements for specific classes and procedures needed to complete this program.
