The Master of Science (M.S.) in Clinical Research Methods is attained through the Clinical Research Training Program (CRTP). This intensive two-year program is designed for those pursuing a career in investigator-initiated, hypothesis-driven clinical research.
CRTP scholars are drawn from all of Einstein’s medical specialties and subspecialties, including those interested in clinical investigation across the entire translational research spectrum, from mechanistic studies to population-based and health services research. The comprehensive program combines didactic learning and coursework with a mentored research experience.
We invite all qualified candidates to apply to the CRTP program. In fact, we are open to eligible candidates at any level of training and from any health-related field or medical specialty. If you are unsure if you should apply, contact the CRTP office for guidance.
Strong preference is given to candidates with evidence of prior research productivity including published papers, abstract and/or presentations or documentation of research work experience.
In addition, the following are major factors considered by the admissions committee:
- A strong mentoring environment, mentoring plan and commitment of the mentor
- A firm commitment from the trainee’s department (Chair, Division Head, or Fellowship Director) that all necessary resources will be made to the trainee, including the required protected time with demonstrable reductions in clinical, teaching, and administrative responsibilities (as needed), space, and a computer
