Master of Science in Health Sciences in Clinical and Translational Research

There is perhaps no more vital role in medicine than discovering practical applications to improve health. Developed as a part of the Clinical and Translational Science Award to Children’s National Health System (formerly Children's National Medical Center) and GW, our Master of Science in Clinical and Translational Research is designed to develop clinical and translational research capabilities of research professionals, junior faculty and scientists.

Responding to the National Institutes of Health’s vision for new approaches to develop and prepare researchers, our program gives you the skills, knowledge and experience needed to fill clinical and translational research professions with an ability to lead initiatives that will lead to better lives.

Our faculty is made up of health care, biomedical research and policy experts. All courses are conducted online and offered in a flexible format, providing you a convenient option to pursue the program and prepare for professional advancement.


Whether you seek to enhance your value in your current research environment or aspire to enter the clinical environment of translating science into another health care enterprise, a master’s degree from GW will help you improve many lives beyond your own.
