The Institute of Human Values in Health Care is sponsoring its second fellowship class in the Clinical Research Ethics Certificate program.
The one-year fellowship, which is part of the Clinical Research Ethics Core of the South Carolina Clinical and Translational Research Institute, features a revised introductory-level curriculum designed to provide medical and health professions students and professionals with a variety of online study and experiences in clinical research ethics.
The program combines the master's in science for clinical research ethics course (MSC 750) and IP Course 738. It comprises seminars that provides opportunities for students to meet with administrators and scientists to discuss information as it relates to research ethics. Robert M. Sade, M.D., the institute's director, said that achieving training in this area can strengthen clinical efforts and provide an advantage when applying for research grants.
Fellows who complete the program will earn a certificate in Clinical Research Ethics and are invited to participate in MUSC's Clinical Research Ethics Consultation Service, in the Institute of Human Values in Health Care and in the newly created Clinical Research Ethics Society.
