Virtual Information Sessions Offered for Graduate Programs in Clinical Investigation

Virtual information sessions for Albany Medical College’s two graduate programs in Clinical Investigation will be held from 12 – 1 p.m. on Feb. 18 and March 18.

The one-year Certificate (CCI) course and the two-year Master of Science (MSCI) degree program are both designed for health care professionals seeking additional credentials or those interested in entering the clinical research field, including graduate students, medical students or clinicians interested in pursuing research in their clinical practice, and nurses, research associates or technicians interested in focusing their careers on research.

Directed by Sarah McCallum, PhD, associate professor in the Department of Neuroscience and Experimental Therapeutics, the curriculum is designed to immerse students in the fundamentals of clinical research including experimental design, statistics, scientific communication, medical ethics and research methods.

Mentored clinical research forms a significant portion of the curricula and each Certificate and Master’s degree scholar will complete a clinical research project with an MD faculty member engaged in clinical research.
