The Master of Science degree program in Clinical Research is designed to equip clinical professionals (physicians, nurses and other terminal degree clinical professionals) with the skills needed to become independent investigators. Interested candidates should possess a terminal degree in a health care profession.

Applications can be submitted at any time throughout the year and, upon acceptance, students can begin the program in any semester.

The deadlines are:
  • Autumn: July 15
  • Spring: November 15
  • Summer: April 15


The following materials are required from all applicants:

  1. Graduate School Application
  2. Three Professional References

    You will be asked to enter information for each of your professional references as part of the Graduate School application (item 1). The references will then receive an email with their login information and a link where they can upload a letter of recommendation/respond to a series of questions about you. Your references should contact the Program Coordinator, Emma Jones, at or (513) 558-2005 if they have questions.

    One of the recommendations must be submitted by a research mentor from a local health care institution, stating that the applicant will have the protected time and support necessary to complete the courses and research thesis that are part of the MS program. Applicants must have a research mentor chosen before they will be considered for admission. Due to the volume of applications the program receives, we cannot match applicants with a mentor.
