About The Program
 
The UCSF Training in Clinical Research (TICR) program offers students in the UCSF School of Pharmacy PharmD degree program the opportunity to earn a master of science in clinical research (MSCR) degree.
 
 
The master's degree program in clinical research is a 2-year course of study intended for advanced pre-doctoral students, post-doctoral fellows, and faculty members who wish to master clinical research methods and pursue independent research careers. Course work extends beyond that which is required for the ATCR Certificate Program to include instruction in advanced epidemiologic and biostatistical methods and specialized topics such as outcomes research, medical informatics, molecular methods in clinical research, and decision and cost-effectiveness analysis. Requirements include a comprehensive review of the literature in the scholar's field, presentation of original work at a national scientific meeting, and publication of a peer-reviewed manuscript. Scholars will work closely with mentors in their home departments and preceptors chosen from the TICR faculty. This is a self-supported program, and financial aid for programs that are not State-supported is very limited.
