MS or PhD in Patient-Oriented Research

A doctor works with a patient

Students will engage in and learn the processes of patient-oriented clinical research. Research directly involves patients, evaluating either their tissue, behavior, physiology or responses to an intervention. Types of research considered patient-oriented include, but are not limited to, the use of human tissues to study diagnostic techniques, the mechanism of disease, effectiveness of treatment interventions, and clinical trials.
