Summer Program in Clinical Effectiveness


The Summer Program in Clinical Effectiveness - affiliated with Brigham and Women's Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School - is intended for physicians who have completed their residencies and wish to obtain the quantitative and analytical skills needed for careers in clinical research. Candidates must be fellows or faculty members and are usually sponsored by their clinical departments or divisions. Students in this program attend an intensive, seven-week, 15-credit summer program, comprising courses in biostatistics, epidemiology, and health policy and management.

Upon completion of this summer program, qualified applicants who are admitted to a degree program may apply these academic credits toward the requirements for either a master of public health (MPH) or a master of science (SM) degree.
