M.D./M.S. in Clinical Research
The dual M.D./M.S. in Clinical Research (M.S.-C.R.) is designed to provide graduate professional training in quantitative and qualitative research methodologies and translational and community-based research strategies. Medical Students who pursue the M.S./C.R. should expect to begin their M.S./C.R. courses after completing the core clinical clerkships and to extend their education by one year.
The dual degree program must be completed within 6 years of matriculation in the School of Medicine. For more information, see https://med.virginia.edu/phs/education-programs-in-public-health-sciences/.
