Einstein offers two Master’s degree-granting programs that can accommodate medical students. Interested students are advised to refer to the programmatic websites as each program is unique and has its own internal application process and tuition. Fellowships are available for each of these programs.
- M.Sc. Program in Clinical Research: 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 manuscripts suitable for publication in a peer-reviewed journal. Completion of the program leads to eligibility for a special diploma signifying distinction in research. Students graduate with an M.D. and an 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. Please visit the program’s website for additional information.
- M.S. in Bioethics: 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. Please visit the program’s website for additional information.
