Certificate in Clinical & Translational Science

Doctor reviewing patient dataThe Certificate Program in Clinical and Translational Science is intended for individuals already trained in the medical sciences, most commonly fully-trained physicians. Others with similar backgrounds (e.g., DDS, DVM or PharmD) or advanced biomedical or clinical degrees may also be considered. The certificate is designed for trainees who want training in clinical research but do not wish to commit to a degree program. Many students electing to enroll in the certificate program are completing fellowship training at one of the Tufts University School of Medicine affiliated hospitals.

Tuition is charged for the Certificate Program at the part-time rate, which is currently $3,333 per credit.

Application for the 8-credit is through the online application; details about required documents can be found on the Required Application Documents page
