Non-Degree Clinical Research Training


CCEB/DBE faculty teach a series of clinical research methods courses designed for those seeking careers as collaborative clinical researchers whose primary focus is on teaching or clinical care. These courses are limited in scope and are not sufficient for those seeking careers as independent investigators.

  • Clinical Research Courses
    • This series of clinical research methods non-credit courses is designed primarily for clinical research project managers, residents, fellows, and faculty without clinical research training who are interested in careers in collaborative and research support roles.
  • Clinical Research Certificate Program
    • This certificate program is designed for clinicians and clinical research project managers without clinical research training who desire an experience less intense than the Master of Science in Clinical Epidemiology and Master of Science in Translational Research degree programs, but are interested in a solid basis for proposal development and research collaboration.
  • Mary E. Groff Fellowship in Clinical Research Methods
    • Fellowships are available in clinical research training for UPHS-affiliated residents and fellows who are enrolled in the CCEB's/DBE's Clinical Research Certificate Program. Applicants must be interested in academic careers as clinician educators performing collaborative research.
