The primary objective of the Masters in Clinical and Translational Science program is to provide an educational environment in which students will learn how to apply the principles and methods of Clinical and Translational Science (CTS) through didactic curricula and participation in practical, collaborative, mentored research. Primary emphasis is placed on practical application of the scientific method, with less focus on theoretical issues.
The program will (1) provide trainees with essential skills in CTS, including hypothesis generation, research design, data analysis, interpretation and dissemination of results, critical appraisal of scientific literature, grant preparation, human research protection, and research ethics; (2) help to establish new collaborative relationships at Augusta University among current basic science, clinical, and translational researchers; and (3) improve research productivity among junior faculty and other clinical researchers at Augusta University through their participation in mentored research, a requirement for all who complete the Masters in Clinical and Translational Science.
