The Summer Intensive Program in Clinical Epidemiology and Health Services Research is designed for trainees who can dedicate a seven-week time commitment to acquiring fundamental concepts and skills in clinical research design and analysis.
Courses are taught by a multi-disciplinary group of faculty who are noted in their scholarly achievements and leadership. Students will be trained to plan, implement, and analyze quantitative and qualitative research studies using appropriate research designs. They will be prepared to work effectively in a variety of settings where data is required to answer complex questions and assess outcomes.
The Summer Intensive Program is based in the Joan and Sanford I. Weill Graduate School of Medical Sciences of Cornell University and was accredited by the State of New York in 1995.
Students entering the program must have an M.D. degree, R.N. certificate, or graduate degree in a clinical health related field, with three years of work experience. Typically, physicians will have completed residency programs and nurses will have had several years of work experience prior to enrollment. Applicants should be committed to pursuing a research career. We encourage applicants from a broad spectrum of cultural backgrounds.
