Clinical Research Management (MS)Wake Forest’s online degree program in Clinical Research Management (MS) focuses on the integration of clinical research and patient care, with the end goal of preparing graduates to play a key role in helping to bring innovative treatments to market in a timely, cost-effective manner.
The primary objective of the program is to train and mentor well-qualified clinical research professionals and leaders that move the research and development process forward to advance health. Students will learn in an innovative, engaging, supportive, and interdisciplinary online environment.
The program is designed to allow those that are currently working professionals to enroll while working. Enrolled students do need to commit to a minimum of 5 academic terms (20 months) in our online program. A decelerated plan of study may be an option; that plan allows students to move at a slower pace, with fewer courses per term. We currently allow enrollment to begin in the summer, fall, and spring terms, allowing you a high degree of flexibility to schedule the degree pursuit around your personal circumstances.
