Advanced Degree Options

The University of Iowa is one of thirteen translational research centers for the CF Foundation and as such plays a central role in CF related clinical trials.  We are also privileged to be one of the first funded university programs with a Clinical & Translational Science Award (CTSA).  We have a variety of clinically oriented fellowship training options including:

  • Masters of Public Health
  • Masters in Medical Education:
  • Masters in Clinical Investigation: A 2-year interdisciplinary program designed for post-doctoral fellows and junior faculty from the Colleges of Medicine, Nursing, Dentistry, and Pharmacy pursuing careers in clinical research. This program provides a structured didactic curriculum in research methods in the context of a mentored research experience.
  • Masters or PhD in Translational Biomedicine: One of a few such programs in the U.S., the program trains clinical scientists in hypothesis-oriented, patient-based research allowing trainees to transcend traditional academic disciplines and conduct state-of-the-art, innovative research.
