A collaboration between the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Clinical Center and Duke University Medical Center.

Eligible: NIH Staff Clinicians, NIH Clinical Fellows, and Other Health Professionals at the NIH.

The NIH-Duke Master's Program in Clinical Research, established in 1998, is one of the nation's first training programs in clinical research. This program allows participants to attend formal courses in research design, research management, medical genomics, and statistical analysis at the Clinical Center by means of video-conferencing from Duke or on-site by adjunct faculty. The program is designed primarily for NIH staff clinicians, clinical fellows, and other health professionals who are training for careers in clinical research.

The program leads to a Master of Health Sciences in Clinical Research, a professional degree awarded by the Duke University School of Medicine. There is also a non-degree option for qualified students who want to pursue specific areas of interest.

Participants in the NIH-Duke Master's Program in Clinical Research must be able to attend classes held at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, MD. More information on the program’s curriculum is available on the Duke University’s website: Program Curriculum.

Enrollment in this program is limited. If you have questions, please contact Rebecca Hwang at, for additional information.
