The Masters of Science in Clinical Trial Sciences is housed within the Department of Health Informatics in the Rutger's School of Health Related Professions. It is a 36 academic credit program consisting of a 9 credit core along with 27 credits of specialization courses and electives.  The core curriculum provides foundational information in research design, ethics, drug discovery, and federal & international regulations governing drug  and device developmen.  The program culminates in a capstone project in which the student can perform a project at their job, participate in a mentored fieldwork experience, or write a systematic review for publication under the guidance of faculty. 

The specialization tracks provide concentrated study in one of four areas:

Clinical Trial Management & Recruitment

Clinical Trials Informatics

Regulatory Affairs

Drug Safety & Pharmacovigilance

Specific electives have been outlined for each specialization track but students also have the option of taking a course belonging to one of the other two specialization tracks as their elective.
