The Master of Science in Clinical Investigation (MSCI) program is an academic program of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences (GSBS) at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. The program provides MD as well as PhD trainees with methodologic and content skills that will enable them to design, conduct, and analyze the results of clinical, public health, and translational research investigations. It emphasizes the development of strong clinical investigation skills based on a solid foundation in study design, conduct of observational studies and randomized trials, clinical epidemiology, and biostatistics. Trainees completing the MSCI Program acquire the necessary skills to successfully design, conduct, and analyze the results of clinical investigations at the individual and population-wide level; and, design and analyze the results of studies that provide insights into the molecular pathophysiology of disease. This collection showcases publications and presentations authored by students in this program.

Attention GSBS MS in Clinical Investigation students: To submit your publications, go to GSBS Student Publications and click on Submit Research in the left sidebar. You’ll need to log in or create a free account. If you have the article's PubMed ID, submission is very easy. Enter the PubMed ID and information from PubMed will be used to populate the submission form. Questions? Contact Lisa Palmer.
