Health Research Graduate Program

Health Research Graduate Certificate


The Health Research Graduate Certificate provides students with an opportunity to enhance their professional education or to serve as a pathway toward graduate education in health sciences.

Students who enroll in this certificate are exposed to essential research knowledge and training, competitive skills useful for recruitment in post-graduate programs (i.e. residency), and early career grant funding. Students will refine their research interests, gain exposure to new research methods and technologies, develop their leadership skills, and help them identify potential career opportunities in clinical, academic, or industry settings where research fluency is increasingly applied and sought after.

This 10-credit program can be completed in as few as two semesters or while students are enrolled in other graduate or professional programs. Additionally, approved graduate certificate credit can be shared for students interested in pursuing degrees in other NEOMED College of Graduate Studies programs (e.g., Integrated Pharmaceutical Medicine (IPM)).
