RBHS Newark Campus Through both post-baccalaureate certificates, and a Master’s Degree Program we educate individuals to become “Clinical Scientists” who possess a thorough understanding of clinical trials, research design, ethics, national and international regulatory processes, and statistical methodology.  Clinical Scientists utilize these knowledge areas to monitor the conduct and progress of trials either in the US or globally. 
Rutgers' Biomedical and Health Sciences


The Biopharma Educational Initiative sits in the heart of “Pharma Alley” in New Jersey.  Because of this proximity to both large and small pharmaceutical and biotech companies we have been able to add individuals who are among the brightest and most talented Pharma employee professionals and add them to our already impressive coterie of University faculty.  In addition, Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences is one of the largest health care research institutions in the US with our own (emerging) contract research organization and well regarded research facilities. Opportunities for networking with industry leaders and gifted principal investigators are valuable assets offered to our students. Enrollment is available within our Online Master’s specialization tracks or our four Online Academic Certificate Programs, and also to applicants seeking visiting student enrollment in individual courses. These web-based courses were designed to fit into the busy schedules of working professionals. Read more about web-based learning.
