Master Degree Programs

Master of Science in Clinical Research Methods (M.S.)

The Clinical Research Training Program provides a foundation for a career as a physician-scientist. Students dedicate a year after their clerkships and some elective time in the senior year to the program. They complete courses in epidemiology, biostatistics, research ethics, and data analysis. Students learn clinical research methods and conduct a mentor-guided research project that leads to two first-author manuscripts suitable for publication in a peer-reviewed journal. Completion of the program leads to eligibility to graduate with distinction in research. Students graduate with an M.D., M.S. at the end of the five years. Students will pay only four years of tuition over the five years of this program and fellowship stipends are available. Students must apply to the CRTP program. Applications are due March 1.

Masterof Science in Bioethics (M.B.E.)

The Einstein-Cardozo Master of Science in Bioethics focuses on translational work in bioethics, adapting theory to build practical knowledge and skills that help professionals improve care and communication. We specialize in clinical bioethics consultation, research involving human subjects and healthcare ethics policy. Bioethics exists at the intersection of medicine and law. Our innovative program examines how moral, ethical and religious values affect medical decisions and healthcare policy. We assess how both emotions and reason shape the choices of patients, doctors, family members and even judicial decisions and laws. Crucial bioethics issues include medical choices at the end of life, the allocation of scarce healthcare resources, protections for human research subjects, the privacy of medical information and the role of race, class and ethnicity in health outcomes and access to care.
